1. What Is Cytotec?
Cytotec is a medication that is sometimes given by doctors to medically induce a miscarriage. Cytotec is a medication that is known to induce labor, and is given as a way to induce an abortion or miscarriage.
Many times, when a woman has a miscarriage, the doctor will prescribe cytotec as a way to flush her system as an alternative to a d&C, which can be painful and invasive. However, many women wonder about their chances of getting pregnant again after using Cytotec.
2. The Facts
While it is true that it might potentially take a bit longer to get pregnant immediately following having a Cytotec miscarriage, it is definitely possible to get pregnant again and most women go on to have a healthy pregnancy afterwards.
The majority of women say that it took them between 3 and 6 months after using Cytotec to conceive again. As far as this goes, there are no long term effects from Cytotec that would affect the ability to conceive on down the road.
Of course, you should always talk to your doctor to determine when he or she recommends that you resume sexual intercourse and trying to conceive after a miscarriage, but rest assured that if you are prescribed Cytotec, you should have no trouble getting pregnant on down the line. Most women who take Cytotec for a medically induced miscarriage actually get pregnant very quickly afterwards with no issues.
3. What To Remember
Any woman who is taking Cytotec to induce miscarriage should always follow up extensively with her doctor to determine when it is safe to try again to conceive. It is also important to remember that even though your body might be ready to try again for a baby, your mind and emotions might not be.
Women should wait until they have had at least one menstrual period and their ovulation cycles have returned to normal before trying to get pregnant with Cytotec, but in the long term, there is no evidence that Cytotec can harm future fertility. Of course, when trying to conceive, whether cytotec is involved or not, women should take care to keep their bodies as healthy as possible.
This includes no smoking, drinking or illegal drugs, and cutting back on caffeine and unhealthy foods. Stress should be kept to a minimum as well, and women can take a prenatal vitamin in order to make sure they are as healthy as possible. Diet and exercise are also of the utmost importance when trying to conceive, so women should keep that in mind as well.Can you get Pregnant after a Miscarriage using Cytotec, 4.2 out of 5 based on 5 ratings
