Let me tell you that Cytotec is contraindicated in pregnancy and those on this drug, should avoid pregnancy, and if wishing to get pregnant, should stop taking this drug before they attempt to conceive. Use of cytotec in pregnancy may lead to abortion, birth defects and premature labor. I advise you to immediately see your gynaecologist for further evaluation of your condition. It looks as though you had a missed period but the state of your pregnancy is yet to be established. Take care.
