Brief Answer: Baby will be fine if you are still pregnant Detailed Answer: Hello ma'am and welcome. Thank you for writing to us. The mechanism of action of cytotec is to cause a contraction of the uterus which should result in expulsion of the fetus inside. If you have not bled, then I would first advise an ultrasound examination to check on viability of the pregnancy. If you are still pregnant, then that is good news. This medication cannot affect the growth or development of your baby, so do not worry about that aspect. I hope you find my response helpful. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help. Best wishes.
