Tipically, women know when they have an IUD, if they suffer from any bleeding disorders or chronic failure of the adrenal glands, if they are facing a long-term treatment with corticosteroids, or if they are allaergic to Misoprostol (Cytotec– 200mcg) or to another type of prostaglandin (05). A woman may not know if any medication provoke allergic reactions, but the allergic reactions caused by these drugs are uncommon.
In a study made with 80,000 women who used Misoprostol (Cytotec– 200mcg), 6 women (0,008%) had a mild allergic reaction (hives). In these 6 cases, the woman developed urticaria or small bumps on the skin that caused intense itching. All these women received oral administration of an antihistamine and then continued taking Misoprostol (Cytotec – 200mcg) without any sign of issue (10).
“All contraindications to Misoprostol (Cytotec – 200mcg), beyond the lenght of pregnancy, are unusual and based on the woman’s medical history and therefore should be known by her.” In fact, doctors track these problems by asking women if they have the characteristic symptoms. (05)
