hi gloria,
I have read your question,
Cytotec(Misoprostol may) cause mild to moderate diarrhea, stomach cramps, and/or nausea. These problems usually occur during the first few weeks of treatment and stop after about a week. The occurrence of diarrhea may be minimized by taking misoprostol with food.
You are experiencing some of the side effects of Misprostol(cytotec),Some other side effects include:
vomiting,flatulence,constipation,headache,menstrual cramps, spotting, or increased or irregular menstruation.
Nipple pain is due to prostaglandins and it will come down as the effect of the medicine is reduced.
And for the normal periods I suggest you to wait for atleast a month .
I recommend you to contact your Gynecologist if these symptoms persist for longer than 8 days or if they are severe.
Wishing you a good health,
DR.G.Gayatri devi.
