If the fever lasts more than 24 hours and is higher than 38ºC /100.4ºF, then you should see a doctor. Don’t say you tried to have an abortion.
Misoprostol (Cytotec – 200mcg), medication used to induce an abortion might provoke some secondary and TRANSITORY, side effects, such as:
- Pain in the soles
- Intense cold
It should be stressed that, when they occur, these side effects are transitory and don’t put the woman’s life at risk. Every single medication, as much as simple as they are (e.g., aspirin or antacid) presents random side effects. It is natural and, in some cases, kind of expected.
The colateral effects may vary considerably depending on the organism. Most women do not show any significant signs of side effects.
In very rare cases, an allergic reaction to this medication can cause hives (small bumps on the skin that are red and itchy), but this effect will also pass.
In case you feel fever that starts soon after using Misoprostol (Cytotec – 200mcg), lasts less than 24 hours and is lower than 38ºC / 100.4ºF, then know this is a is a typical and transitory side effect.
A heavier bleeding or one that resembles to a regular menstrual period is the expected effect. That means the process of abortion is happening. Don’t worry.
