hi and thanks for the query,
Its understandable it can be difficult using cytotec especially when abortion is illegal in some settings when abortion is illegal. However, you must consider a few issues before using this drug. It is only effective in 95 % of cases, and also works better in pregnancies that are less than 8 weeks of age. there are some complications especially bleeding or failure of conceptus to be expelled, and might at times still require a vacuum extraction or dilatation and curettage to complete it or control complications.
Using this drug at over 8 weeks and in an area where complications cannot be controlled in case they occur is not very advisable. I respect your will of doing these, but i think reflecting on these realities with respect to your present environment now could be useful. May be visiting an area where it is legal could be a gateway through.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
