What is a contraindication?
It is crucial for you to know what contraindications are in order to achieve a make a safe medical abortion with Misoprostol (Cytotec – 200mcg).
Contraindications are conditions or situations that can prevent the woman from using Misoprostol (Cytotec – 200mcg) safely. They may be facts women know about themselves. Finding out if you have any of these contraindications in an online consultation is very similar to the process in a presential consultation.
The doctor finds out if the patient has a contraindication by asking if she has any symptoms.
You may not know if you are allergic to any of these drugs, but know that allergic reactions that result from these drugs are very uncommon (0.008%) and very mild (hives).
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)
