Misoprostol Did It Work For You

I took 800 mg of Misoprostol on Tuesday morning and only had bleeding and a few clots (a couple were pretty big and I thought that could be the tissue but my doctor said it likely wasn't). My doctor told me to repeat the pills today (Wednesday), but so far I have experienced little bleeding and no cramps. Has anyone had similar experience (no cramps and just heavy bleeding)? If so, did you have to have a D&C to remove the tisse? I chose the pills instead of the D&C b/c of the risks associated with surgery, but I guess I might not have a choice....

Unfortunately, no, it didn't work for me back in September. Our baby didn't have a heartbeat and had apparently died at 6 weeks 1 day. The doctor had me insert 3 pills v____ally on a Monday and 3 again on Wednesday of the same week. I got some cramping (nothing major) and some bleeding and some blood clots. Not to be gross, but most of it looked like brown sludge. The following Sunday I pa__sed what I thought was the baby, but an ultrasound on Monday showed that the baby hadn't pa__sed. I then had a D&C that Wednesday. My entire miscarriage ended up lasting 2 weeks and it was 2 weeks of mental agony in waiting and watching. I found the D&C to be relatively painless and much easier mentally. If I had to choose again, I would choose the D&C. My doctor said the drugs have an 85% success rate (even if it failed on me). There is another posting that you can search for with more people discussing Cytotec that may be helpful to you. I remember posting on it in September. I wish you the best of luck. This is really hard to go through.

thanks for your reply. i chose the pills b/c I thought it was less invasive than the D&C (the risk of scaring the uterus was one of the risks I was told about).... my doctor suggested taking another 4 pills tomorrow morning if nothing happens tonight but it doesn't seem promising... so, i will try that i guess and then I guess if it still doesn't work, I'll be having the D&C... I have had almost the exact same experience as you in terms of clots/bleeding.... and no cramping.... the waiting game has been so bad b/c all I want to do is get over this nightmare...

Hang in there. It will end eventually. I chose the pills for the exact same reason. Another dose may do the trick. Good luck. It is a total nightmare but it will end.
