This is a drug I do not know much about
In the US, misoprostol (brand name Cytotec®) has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) only for the prevention and treatment of gastric ulcers. However, clinicians routinely use misoprostol off-label for obstetric and gynecological purposes, including cervical ripening, labor induction, and mid-trimester terminations Further, the FDA has approved the use of misoprostol in conjunction with mifepristone for the termination of early pregnancies.
This does not sound like a drug that would be very popular for use in women of child-bearing age.
Do talk with your Dr.
