I would really appreciate any advice...

Does anyone know how long a medical management takes to work? Can it happen slowly? Or how long it can go on for? The hospital gave me the impression it would happen very quickly ... but I had the tablets Thursday morning ... it took till 10pm for the strong cramps (through out the night) and light bleeding to start mild cramping and bleeding since but that’s it... any help would be lovely 😔

When I had medical management mine didn’t work but I didn’t know that until two weeks later when I cramped and passed the baby.

The day I had medical management i did experience cramps and some bleeding but didn’t know what to expect so thought it had worked.

Unfortunately I got a call after it did happen over two weeks later saying they forgot to follow me up with a scan to check it had passed.

Hope you don’t have to wait too long xx

My experience was exactly the same as above so I really wasn't prepared when it started up again two weeks later. I also had to go back for a scan after and had to do a later pregnancy test as the first one was still showing pregnant. Sorry you are going through this and hope it passes quickly.xxx

Cat. The hospital said to me if nothing like bleeding or cramping hadn't happened in 72 hrs to go back and I'll have more. If your bleeding is heavy and still nothing and your feeling dizzy you need to go back to hospital. It can take a few days for bubz to pass but if your getting worried I'd ring them and get some reassurance from them. Hope it happens soon hun

Please don't say that hun. We're both going through the same thing. That makes me sad you feel like that your going through the same if not worse as it's taking longer to work xxx

Hi Kat,

I saw your like and thought I should ask how you are doing? Have you passed the pregnancy?

I wish you the best. Stay strong.

Hi,

I'm sorry to hear what you are going through.

I had medical management twice three weeks ago and went on to have surgical management last Thursday.

From what you described, I can say it hasn't worked. Normally you should pass some clots aside the normal bleeding. So call your clinic and let them check you by doing a scan.

I wish you the best.

It's cytotec (Misoprostol). It's hexagonal in shape. I had the first round via mouth ( I put the medicine underneath my tongue), had the second round through the vagina and had to stay in the hospital.

Is it the same medicine you used?

Reply

I had to insert 4 Misoprostol into my vagina... then went straight home?! They just said if I felt unwell or severe bleeding to go back! I’m so confused... I know everyone is different!!

Can I ask if you have children? Does it make a difference?!

Reply

I think they made me stay in the hospital cos the first one didn't work and they wanted to monitor me closely this time around.

No I don't have any children yet and this was the first time I ever got pregnant. I have never been pregnant. I don't k ow of it makes any difference.

I don't think having children makes a difference. Some ppl it works first time others it doesn't. It's just the way of medicine hun. Xxx
