Cytotec didn't work... now what?


I feel like I am in the never ending miscarriage. My body hates me I swear! And I am getting so frustrated.

Well I took 3 cytotec's Friday AM and another 3 Friday PM. I got some slight cramping and a backache. Slight bleeding only when I wiped. Not much. Talked to my OBGYN that night and she called in another RX for me to pick up to do yesterday. She upped the dose to 4 cytotec's in the AM and 4 more last night. This time nothing! No cramping, no back ache and not even a drop a blood. I feel so defeated. I just want this done and over with. I want to move forward and put this behind me but my body is being stupid and not cooperating.

I am trying to avoid a D&C at all costs as I don't want surgery and my insurance isn't exactly the greatest and will be super expensive for us.

I really hope that my OBGYN will let me do another dose this Saturday ( I don't want to take more time off work sitting around seeing if it will even do anything) or let me wait it out naturally. Which I think will take awhile as my beta's were still going up a little bit last week.

Why body why are you doing this to me!!

Anybody else have this happen to them? What did the Dr. do?

If you read this far. Thanks!!

Hey I'm sorry you're having such a bad time, hopefully your doctor will help you out as this is true torture for you, I opted for DnCs but healthcare is very different in the UK.

I hope things start to happen very soon for you, big hugs

Did you insert it with your fingers or did you use a device? I have the feeling that women are not inserting it deep enough. I used a device and all happened within 12 hours painlessly.

Sondacop - These were all done orally by mouth.

I talked to my OBGYN this AM and she wants me to do another dose. This time she wants them done vaginally so I will be doing that. I have the option of doing it myself or I can go into the office and she can insert them herself. After your words, I am leaning towards her doing them for me as I don't have a device and would use my fingers. Her doing it would have mean having a long night ahead of myself on Friday. But I just want this done and over with.

I'd have her do it if you don't have a device, here is my experience that I posted on a different site:

Don't be alone, have painkillers ready just in case, pads, if you are planing something for the baby prepare a container and what ever necessary, tissues, a bed lining to save your mattress. Make sure you have eaten nutritious food beforehand, start supplementing with iron pills. I hope it goes as painless for you.

I'm so sorry. I just started my first oral dose tonight. I hope this new strategy helps you avoid a D&C. Good luck

Well, I found out last Tuesday that I most likely had a Missed Miscarriage - baby was 5w2d should have been 7w and there was no yolk sac or fetal pole to be seen. Beta's were at 23,000.

I did the 1st set of pills on Friday. Some slight cramping, back ache and tiny bit of bleeding. Did anther set of pills on Saturday. This time nothing - no cramping, no back ache and not a drop of blood. Yesterday, I rested during the day and last night and today I have been getting some brown discharge. This is it. No red blood yet. So I don't think I've even started the MC process yet....

it's awful when it's not going the way they tell you it should. do you have msn? if you want to private message me an email maybe we can chat? i had a close friend who went through this all last year so that helped me.. if you need a friend i'm always around i'm so sorry you have to go through this.

Aliss, I am not sure that oral is the best route, I hope it happens quickly and painlessly for you.
Snowflakes, did you have her insert them for you? Did she use a device? How many pills did she insert? It should have started by now, this must be so frustrating for you!
For more info on how long it usually takes : http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21877016
Were the pills moistened first? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21908466
