Hi....I was 7 weeks pregnant and started miscarrying but it failed to complete naturally...now my doctor has prescribed 200 mcg misoprostol to be taken orally 1 pill, 3 times a day for seven days. I am confused as most posts I read say they are taken either v____ally or three or four in one dose. Has anyone else been prescribed what seems to be such a minimal amount and for so long?

Hi everyone,
I want to start off by saying I am so sorry that you all had to go through this. I am a train wreck of emotions right now. I bounce back from being okay to being a crying mess several times throughout the day.

My story really starts before I even realized what had happened. I went to bed on April 11th (approximately 8 weeks)feeling some mild cramping, I was a tiny bit worried, but just wrote it off as being over tired. It had been a crazy busy week. I woke up early in the morning to the sound of my daughter crying (she had a cold the whole week and was in clingy mommy mode) but when I woke up I was feeling alarmed that the cramping I had fallen asleep with was still happening, along with very mild lower back pain. I am kind of an anxious person, so I started to get chills, cold sweats and my heart was racing because I was so scared that I was losing the baby. The thought of losing the baby was making me feel so sick. I couldn't go in to see what was wrong with my daughter because I knew I would pa__s out from anxiety. Eventually she stopped crying, and I regained my composure,and a__sured myself that all was okay.

Pregnancy went on as normal until the evening of Sunday April 29th(11 weeks pregnant). I noticed when I went to the washroom and I wiped there was a tiny streak of pink. I was not bleeding or even enough to consider it spotting, but mild cramps had continued on and off for a few weeks. I felt like something was wrong, and even though everyone tried to rea__sure me that spotting, cramps were normal pregnancy symptoms, I took a trip to the ER, just to be on the safe side.

The emergency room was really busy, and they said I would have to go back the following day for an ultrasound anyways since the technicians don't work at night. Just as I was preparing to leave, a nurse who had heard my story offered to do a quick ultrasound scan "just to set my mind at ease". As soon as he put the ultrasound probe on my tummy, he confirmed my worst fear. All I saw was a big, empty black space. There was no baby that I could make out on the ultrasound. He insisted that my dates were wrong, and booked me an appt with the emerg ultrasound tech for the next day.

The following day I went back for my full ultrasound, and while the tech seemed to be measuring something she had scanned in my uterus, I could not make it out as an 11 week old fetus. My HCG came back at 23,299. After lots of waiting they explained that it appeared the baby was gone. They asked me to come back in 2 days to repeat HCG betas. When I came back my betas were at 21,000. They said I could wait for the miscarriage to happen naturally, I could do the misoprostol, or have a d&c. They said I was early enough that a d&c would not be the preferred option. They said there is more chance of complication with a d&c as it is surgery, I would be under anesthesia, and since I am such a completely anxious person I was so terrified of having a d&c.

I was scared even just to insert the misoprostol v____ally . The nurse said that they have found it is more effective if inserted v____ally than taken orally, and that symptoms of nausea diarrhea were less intense. So I agreed. They inserted the first 4 misoprostol tablets (200mg each)v____ally at the hospital at 12:00 noon, and told me to stay lying down for 10 minutes. They gave me a prescription for a 2nd dose of 4 tablets to take within 24 hrs only if the first dose did not work. They also wrote a prescription for tylenol 3. I went home. By 2:00 I started to have some cramps, and took regular tylenol. I did have some mild chills, and while the cramps were intensifying, they were not anything I could not handle (I usually get really bad cramps for the first couple hours with my regular periods, so this was similar, just lasted much longer than it would usually last). I had no diarrhea, no nausea. At around 5:30 I put a heat back on my tummy to help with the pain, and then at 6:00 I felt the first gush. Ran to the washroom, and there was lots of clots. By 7:30, I had pa__sed the first bits of tissue. At 9:00 I pa__sed a really big piece of tissue, and the cramping settled down. While I did look in the toilet at the stuff, I didn't have the courage to fish around and try to see if I could find a baby in there. Plus the nurse told me I would not see a baby, just pieces of tissue. The second piece of tissue looked like a large tube of skin. I am guessing it was the sac? I am not sure.

The following day the early pregnancy clinic at the hospital called and asked me how it went. I described what had happened, and they said not to take the second dose, because it sounded like it had been pa__sed. The next few days I had moderate bleeding. On May 6th, I started to have cramps again and lower back pain and I pa__sed another fairly big clot. & then I was fine.

I went back to work this Monday, and continued to have lots of bleeding in the mornings (probably because I don't have as much bleeding when I am lying down all night?), and moderate to light bleeding in the afternoons.

Today I am feeling depressed and tired, so I dropped my daughter off and am staying home. I have only had light bleeding/spotting today (10 days after taking the medication). I know this summary is really long, but it is the first time I have told my story from start to finish. I am really sad. I really wanted this baby, and I can't believe that one day I was pregnant and the next day I was not. It is so hard to fathom.

I would definitely recommend using misoprostol v____ally, and if it were to happen to me again (praying it wont) I would definitely choose this method over a d&c. My husband and I want to try again, right away. Has anyone else used this medication and had a successful pregnancy immediately after? I go to see my doctor this Friday, and he is going to schedule me in for an ultrasound to make sure everything has pa__sed.

As for the miscarriage, all I can say is if you feel like something is wrong, don't doubt yourself. Go with your gut instinct. I really believe that night weeks before I found out, I was having a miscarriage. I should have gone to emerg that night. Even if they were not able to do something to help my baby, at least I would have dealt with the loss when it happened, and would have been a bit better and stronger by this point. Knowing that I had carried this baby for weeks after it had pa__sed away makes it even harder.

Again, I am so sorry for all of you going through this experience. It is the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with. Wishing you all a quick recovery (both physically and emotionally).

After reading pretty much every comment on this forum, I almost changed my mind and went with the dnc. I was diagnosed with a missed miscarriage when my baby measured 8 weeks and 2 days with no heartbeat. All during that week, I just couldn't believe that they were correct. Every day my pregnancy symptoms felt like they were getting worse. My b___st grew more tender and my morning sickness increased. My ob had pushed the dnc on me. A week after being diagnosed, I just didn't "feel" that my baby was dead, so I made them do another ultrasound. I guess I was just in denial. I had had 2 healthy deliveries and just couldn't fathom this one not being the same. The ultrasound showed that my baby had gone down in size and was measuring at only 7 weeks and that the walls were closing in. I opted for misoprostol. I had to wait a whole day for the prescription due to my dr's handwriting. So I began to read all of these posts. I prepared myself for the worst by the majority of the threads. I had never had surgery before, so that is why I decided against the dnc. I didn't want to be put under. So, if you are reading this and are feeling negative about the pill, just remember that every woman is different. I am a very small person. The doctor prescribed me to take 4 pills, 200 mcg each, so 800 mcg all together by mouth. I took them with a 600 mg motrin around 5 pm last night. I have 2 school aged children and I just wanted this to take place either while they were sleeping or at school. I had read on here that it could take awhile. I had a friend come over just in case it was too painful and I couldn't take care of my kids alone or get them to school in the morning. Today is their last day of school and my youngest has a birthday coming up this weekend. Within a half hour of taking the pills, I did start cramping a little. It felt more like a light menstral cramp or gas like pains. Around 7:45, I was in the kitchen when I felt wetness coming out so I rushed in the bathroom. As soon as I sat down, blood started gushing. There was ALOT of it. That was the most frightening part of my experience. I cleaned up and went back out to the dining room. About 10-15 minutes later, again, I felt wetness coming out so I went back to the bathroom. Again, gush. It feels as tho you are peeing, but it's blood and not urine. This time it lasted alot longer. I was thinking, this can't be good. From what all I read it could take hours or even days and this is alot of blood. I'll end up bleeding to death. After the gushing started to stop, I felt something start to slide out. I barely had time to look down before it pa__sed. I again got cleaned up and went to the dining room. This was about 8:15-8:30. I had only used one pad so far. I thought that I would continue with the bleeding and cramping, but every time I went to the bathroom, I found that I was barely bleeding. The cramping was very light as well. I went to bed around 10 and was restless for the majority of the night. This morning, I got up to get my girls ready for school and feel pretty much normal. I was a little weak and feel emotional, but physically, I think the worst is over. I didn't have to wake my friend that stayed with me. I took the girls to school and came home and so far hardly any cramping. The bleeding this morning is a little heavier than a normal period. I will be calling my ob as soon as the office is open. I think they will be doing an ultrasound to make sure everything has pa__sed. But even if I need another dose, I will take them without any question. I think the worst part of this experience is the emotional part. I was nervous before taking the pills and I was sad for losing my baby. With the help of close family and friends and my pastor, I know I will get thru this. I do have 2 beautiful little girls that I feel very much blessed to have. My deepest sympathies go out to anyone who have lost their child. May God be with you all and you find a way to deal in a positive way.


JenLeigh80 - June 13th, 2012 12:01 PM

Hello again. I have some more to add since I posted last. Sunday I had a birthday party for my youngest child at the park/beach. Later that evening I started running a temperature. Then on Monday the temperature had raised and I began having a foul smelling discharge. I had stopped bleeding on Friday and had no bleeding on Saturday. I had started bleeding a little bit on Sunday. Tuesday morning which was yesterday I decided to call my ob. They wanted me to come in right away, so I did. He did an ultrasound which showed that my placenta hadn't completely come out. So I had to take the second dose of the pills, same as before along with an antibiotic. He also schedulded me to come in for a dnc for this morning. Last night, an hour after taking the 4 pills, I felt like I went into full b__wn labor. Last week it was more like gas pains so I didn't bother taking any kind of pain meds upon taking the 4 pills. Boy was that a bad idea. I did end up taking a vicodine, but of course it was too late. I waited about 45 minutes and took another one. I had my ob paged and he told me that I could go into the the emergency room and they would stable my pain and help this process go a little smoother. Every time I thought I was ready to go in and went to get up off of my floor the pain came back full b__wn and I was really light headed, so I didn't end up going into the hospital. I laid on my dining room floor from a little after 7pm until almost 11pm. I knew I needed to get cleaned up, but I just couldn't get the courage to move. My ob had called to check on me and told me that if it wasn't just clot like stuff that came out that I would probably not have to go in for a dnc this morning. I hadn't been able to check as I was still on the floor. Once I was able to sit up I got into a kitchen chair and sat there for awhile to try to get stable. I was weak and still very light headed. I managed to get into the bathroom, which I decided was better than to go upstairs where my shower is. I had pa__sed a grayish colored tissue a pretty big size. So I decided that the doctor was probably right to tell me that I probably did not need to go get a dnc done this morning. I am feeling very sore and weak. My advice to anyone looking for advice is this...if the first round of pills does NOT completely work for you, I would recommend getting the dnc done. If I knew yesterday what I know now, I would've admitted in the hospital for the antibiotics for over night and went with the dnc this morning. I can tolerate ALOT of pain. I had my first child with only demoral, which didn't touch the contractions. Then with my youngest child, I had no pain meds at all. If I would have been able to get to the emergency room last night, you bet I would've done so! I'm not sure if it ended up being worse on me because I did have a high temperature due to infection or not. The first dose of the pills was a piece of cake. But I would never recommend the second dose to ANYONE.


JenLeigh80 - June 14th, 2012 10:33 AM

After posting yesterday, I did have a doctors appointment with my ob. I went in thinking that everything had pa__sed the night before. Well, he did the ultrasound and there was still a little bit in there. I was devestated. He decided that he could manually remove what was left by some machine that he had in the office. I asked if it would hurt and all he said was it would be uncomfortable. I agreed to allow him to do it. I think basically it was a dnc without sedation. It was very painful. After checking with the ultrasound he made sure everything was out and then put 2 more of the pills up my bum. I told him I did not want anymore of those pills. But he said they would actually make me feel better this time and prevent me from bleeding to death. After I got home, I was just so afraid that it would put my body in labor mode again so I took a vicodine. I was still sore anyway. Last night I only got the chills and slight bleeding. My body feels like it's been run over by a semi truck. My stomach is very tender. It hurts to cough. It hurts to laugh. I'm not even sure if I would recommend to anyone now to even try the first dose of the pills. After what I just went thru, I wish I could turn back the clock and opt for the dnc. I have decided to get my tubes tied or go with another permanant procedure. I do not think I could handle this every happening again.

After a shock at my 8th week Dr appointment - I was suspected of a blighted ovum - I spent 2 weeks taking hcg levels and scans to confirm my miscarriage. This was my second pregnancy. I have a 2 year old daughter.
My Dr explained the available options - she preferred misoprostol vs d&c. I read all possible forums and so did my husband. we decided to try the medicine.
I took the first dose (800mg) friday night after dinner. Had mild cramps for an hour and waited for it to intensify and bleeding to start. well, nothing happened. i slept through the night and woke up the next morning without a drop of blood. According to what we had read the worst happened within few hours of the first dose. Was quite frustrated that the medicine did not work. Took the second dose in the morning anyway and this did not even give me cramps. All through the weekend (most of it) had light spotting and zero cramps.
During my first pregnancy I endured labour for a whole day and finally ended up with a c-section. I figured this was similar, may be I always get to "experience" all options!
My d&c was scheduled for tuesday (as a back up plan) and I braced myself for it.
At 7.30 pm sunday we were headed out for shopping and i started cramping. This was contraction like cramping coming in every few minutes. I still suspected nothing. The contractions got bad and I went giddy sitting in the backseat. My husband kept talking to me and my daughter (she was screaming seeing me pa__sed out). I thought I needed to go to the ER...the pain was so intense. We finally got home and I managed to lie down. Took a pain killer and pa__sed clots. The whole thing lasted 2 hours and stopped as suddenly as it had started. Now I was confused again. Was this bleeding not supposed to last longer. Figured this was incomplete and I probably did not pa__s all the tissues.
With a broken heart we went to see my Dr today. She did a scan and it was all gone! Yep...it took all of 2 hrs and of course 2 days after taking the medicine.
I was overjoyed and cancelled my d&c for tomorrow.
I wanted to share my experience cause reading through these forums helped me with my decision. And my Dr said she had never heard of a case where the medicine worked after 2 days.

First, i would like to start off by saying that i never wanted to go through with having an abortion. I am still in school (which i can hardly get by as is) and having a baby just isn't in the cards for me and my boyfriend. So please bear with me and try not to judge me for the mistakes i have made recently. I am embaressed to say that we had bought Cytotec online from India and it had just arrived during the begining of my 9th week of pregnancy. I had taken the first dose of 4 pills orally at 4:30pm, letting 2 dissolve in each cheek. It took a while for them to dissolve. After about a half hour of having them in my mouth, almost completely dissolved, i started to get extreme and unbearable cramping, nasea, fever, chills, diarrhea...everything. Meanwhile, having absolutlely no pain medication except for ibuprofen, which was barely doing anything. I eventually began to throw up. I tryed to hold it back but i couldnt help it. At the time i was afriad that i had thrown up all of the medicine and i had to go through the horrible process all over again. I was so sick that i had gone to take a bath and i believe i pa__sed out from the pain, because i hurt way too much to just fall asleep. Although, i've never pa__sed out before so i dont know what it's like. About 2 hours after pa__sing out i woke up and i was bleeding a little bit. Since then i've had somewhat light bleeding (about one pad full) with a couple of tiny clots and no cramping. I'm am supposed to take the second dose at 4:30am but i am so afraid to do this over again because of how unbearable it was the first time. I desperately need advice...as soon as possible.

Hello everyone. I have read other's stories of their losses and they have all helped me tremendously so I hope that by posting mine I can help someone else. This was our first pregnancy, and I am 37. We tried for one month and were so excited to have our first baby coming. I didn't really have morning sickness, but I was very tired, had sore b___sts, had to pee all the time and my belly was growing so much that I couldn't b___ton my pants any longer after about 10 weeks. We went for my first ultrasound at 12 weeks and the technician very coldly informed us that the baby had died at 7 or 8 weeks. We were both shocked and devastated as I had no symptoms of anything going wrong. I still felt very pregnant and had absolutely no spotting or cramping whatsoever. I went to my GP a few days later and she told us the best thing to do was to take misoprostal to induce a missed miscarriage. She felt this was a better option than a D&C as she has seen scarring in her other patients. She sent me home and told me to put in 3 pills the next morning and it would happen in a few hours and would be nothing more than a bad heavy period. She also gave me a strong anti-inflammatory, something similar to x-strength advil. The next morning I put in 3 pills at about 7am. Nothing happened until about 3pm. I started to have some mild cramps, so I took the anti-inflammatories. Bleeding followed shortly, and I was so scared, I had no idea what was happening. I sat on the toilet and bawled my eyes out, because now the reality was hitting me that it was really over and we would not be having our baby in December. By about 4pm, the cramps turned into full-on labour like contractions. These strong contractions lasted for 4 hours. I just lay on the bed with my husband beside me and I writhed in pain hoping it would stop. The contractions would come about 5 minutes apart, decrease to 1 minute apart, then increase to 5 minutes apart. I was bleeding quite a bit, in those four hours I went through about 4-5 pads. I would get up and go to the toilet every 15min and just sit and cry and bleed. There was a lot of blood, but no tissue and few clots that were no bigger than 1/2 inch. Finally around 7pm the contractions seemed to give up and I fell asleep for about 20min. Then they came on so strong like the worst pain I have ever felt. I am a retired pro athlete as of last year so believe me I have put my body through intense pain but nothing compared to this. The contractions were now a minute apart or less and every time I had one I screamed. I felt like my uterus was going to contract itself right out of me. When I put my hand there it felt rock hard and it would tremble. I am not sure if I was making it worse by trying to control it, but the pain was unreal. At this point I had taken the maximum amount of prescribed painkillers but obviously they had done nothing. My husband called 911. Blood felt like it was pouring out of me. The ambulance attendants gave me a shot of morphine and I was in the hospital. At that point the contractions were manageable. I had soaked 2 pads in that hour, however the OB we saw at the hospital checked to see if I was still bleeding and it seemed to have subsided so he was not worried about hemorrhaging. At that point, I was still not pa__sing any tissue, so he told us to go home and insert another 3 pills in the morning, along with a prescription of morphine. So the next morning I did it all over again, this time with a morphine every 3-4 hours. The next round was more manageable than the first round, however I only pa__sed one large clot about 2 inches in diameter. The bleeding and cramps subsided and I thought it was over. I continued to bleed like a period for a week. 6 days later it started again on its own. More cramps, more morphine, and more bleeding. This round lasted about the same as the others, a day of cramping with blood and some small clots, again subsiding. Then I continued to bleed with a light period for about two weeks. The bleeding subsided slightly, but it never really stopped. Then, after I went for a run, two and a half weeks after I put in the first pills, I was standing in the shower and I felt something coming out of me. The fetus dropped out of me and landed on the floor of the tub. I had no idea what to do, I was in complete shock. There was our baby on the tub floor. I immediately picked it up and held it in my hand. It was a bit smaller than the size of my thumb. It really didn't look like a baby, but I knew that's what it was. It was a collection of different looking tissue in a sac. So I got out of the shower and wrapped it up in toilet paper. Later I went and buried it in our back yard among a patch of ferns. Then I stopped spotting. Finally I thought it was over. Over the 2.5 weeks my belly was shrinking and my b___sts were not as sore. I went for a follow-up ultrasound as directed by my doctor once the bleeding had stopped. It was horrible, I was sitting in a waiting room full of a dozen giddy happy pregnant women and their partners. More bad news. I still had a piece of placenta and a big blood clot stuck inside me. My doctor called me and said it was going to come out on its own and to be patient. Sure enough, two days after the US I started bleeding like a period and pa__sed the clot. But then I just kept on bleeding lightly. Another ultrasound showed a small piece of something still inside me, now 4.5 weeks after I first inserted the pills. My doctor ordered a blood test to test my HCG levels to see if the tissue inside me would have to be removed as I would not have a period if they were still high. Fortunately, I finally heard some good news as my HCG levels were at zero. Now, it is nearly 8 weeks after I first started the misoprostal and I am finally cramping and having a period. My husband has been very supportive through all of this, I believe he felt everything and cried with me when times were really tough. If it happens again, I am not sure I would go the misoprostal route since my body didn't pa__s the fetus and it was horribly painful. I would probably wait and let it happen naturally. I did not become infected even though the fetus and placenta was inside of me for so long. We are going to start trying again next month, and no matter what happens, I will always think of the baby we had.

I am so grateful for all of the posts on this site. I promised I would relate my experience as soon as I could. I am sorry this is lengthy, but I found so much help in descriptive posts, so I hope this serves a similar purpose for someone else.

I began light spotting at 9 weeks. My wonderful OB practice brought me in immediately for a dating scan. The baby only measured 6w1d and lacked a heartbeat. The nurses were hopeful that my dates were incorrect (sadly, I knew they were not), and they scheduled me for a follow-up scan in one week. The follow-up scan revealed no growth, nor a heartbeat. The doctor explained my three options: wait it out, Misoprotol, or a D&C. As my body had yet to fully realize what had happened (other than the light spotting, which had subsided), I elected to take the Misoprotol. This was not a light decision; I struggled with it, as I was petrified of how it would make me feel. However, as this was my first pregnancy, and consequently, my first missed miscarriage, I was worried that if I have future issues with pregnancy, I might need a D&C later. But please remember, this is a personal choice, and my line of reasoning might not work for everyone.

Should you choose to take Misoprostol (or Cytotec), here is my experience: Inserted 4 200mg pills v____ally at 8:00 pm on a Wednesday. Not as difficult as I thought. I wisely trimmed my fingernail as low as possible, and I lightly wet the pills. Not sure if this helped, but others have recommended it. I immediately shuffled off to the couch and propped my legs up. I did not want the pills to slip out. I managed to rest there for about 2 hours before having to use the bathroom, despite drinking watered down Gatorade. Through these two hours, I felt light cramping, backaches, and chills. It was a hot and humid August night, and I was shivering under a blanket and asking my husband to turn off the AC. Poor guy.

The first bathroom break brought only a small amount of red blood when wiping, but it was enough that I believed the process had begun. It had; subsequent bathroom breaks contained lots of blood. It streamed out, similar to urinating. I continued to walk around the house, and I found that this not only reduced the strong pain of cramps/contractions, but it also increased the amount of blood.

Around 12:00 am, I pa__sed the first of a huge clot. It was about the size of a lemon, and this was followed by many more on additional bathroom breaks. The second clot was about the size of a ping pong ball, and I believe it was the sac (at least I like to tell myself this, so I can have hope that I saw it).

I went to bed at 2:00 am, and I continued to bleed heavily and pa__s large clots. I highly recommend layering your bed with towels; I thought I would immediately wake up if I was leaking, but I managed to leak through three times. I overfilled a large pad every 90 minutes. I also found myself getting ligthheaded after each nighttime bathroom visit, so my wonderful husband got me a gla__s of juice each time.

Upon waking up Thursday morning, I was still filling a pad almost every hour. I planned to shower around 11:00 am (sitting down, and with my husband supervising), but when I got up, I could barely make it to the kitchen. I rested on the cool countertop, and as I finally thought I had enough strength to move to the bathroom to go again, I sank to the floor. I was suddenly hot and covered in cold sweat. I stayed there for about 10 minutes, sipped on some Gatorade, and finally had enough energy to make it to the bathroom. After using the bathroom, my husband put a towel and pillow in there, and I rested in there until I was able to make it to the kitchen and then the living room. I tried to eat some soup and drink more Gatorade. The bleeding started to subside around this time, and I was able to take a shower and nap around 2:00 pm. After my nap, everything was better. I was still very weak, but I could walk again. The bleeding continued to lessen, and I was able to sleep through the night.

I took it easy on Friday, but I pushed myself too hard on Saturday and Sunday (I needed to get out of the house, so we went furniture shopping). The bleeding wasn’t an issue, but the energy loss was. I would say it took me a full week to recover from the exhaustion/blood loss. I still haven’t been back on my treadmill, as just walking up the stairs can be tiring.

I had a follow-up ultrasound 8 days after initially taking the Misoprotol. The scan showed I had cleared the sac and the placenta. The doctor advised me I would still bleed for about a week. This has continued, but is very light (I barely need a panty liner).

I am fortunate that my body seemed to work with the Misoprostol. Reading the various message boards on the internet frightened me, but it also prepared me. My medical practice does not usually prescribe pain medication, but they did when I asked. I got Ibuprofin 800, Vicodin, and nausea medicine. I did not end up taking any of these, although I probably could have. The worst pain was pretty rough, but I just kept breathing, walking around, and telling myself it was only a wave.

I also was armed with two heating pads, watered down Gatorade, towels on my bed, changes of clothes in the bathroom, extra toilet paper rolls, Lysol wipes next to the toilet, plenty of pads, a throw-up bucket (never needed), and a support system (husband and mom). We also had plenty of DVRed television shows to watch. I had hoped to get some ironing done (ha!), but I found that mindless distraction was much better.

Before I began the process, I typed up a medical information sheet for my husband and mom, should I pa__s out. It listed my doctor’s number, the information about the Misoprostol, known allergies, my blood type, other medical conditions, etc. I figured that if anything happened and I couldn’t communicate properly, I wanted my husband armed with as much information as possible. We did not end up needing it, but for those women who do pa__s out and need to go to the hospital, this might be helpful.

I am only 11 days out from my experience, so I do not know when I should expect my bleeding to stop, when I should expect my first post-miscarriage menstrual cycle, and when we might start thinking about going down this road again. If I learn anything new that might benefit someone else, I will post again.

My thoughts are with all of you reading this. We are strong, and our sweet babies will always be in our hearts and souls.
