Misoprostol and mifegest is not 100% effective, it has its failure rates also.

There are so many cases in which pregnancy remains as such even after full course of misoprostol & mifegest. We are regularly seeing such cases in our clinic. Stoppage of vomiting alone is...

I am a 21 years old girl. On the 27th August, I decided to put an IUD coil. My doctor gave me two cytotec to insert vaginally to open the cervix as I have never had any child before. I was telling the doctor to do a pregnancy test first but she said it is not need because she will see in her scan whether I am pregnant or not. So she didnt see anything and she put the IUD. But since last week i started getting leg pains and frequent urination. I told my doctor and she told me to do a pregnancy test and urinary infection test. There was not infection but the pregnancy test came out positive. I am 4 weeks and my doctor is insisting that i take cytotec again for an abortion because she says my baby will have defects since i took the cytotec. I was probably only one week when I took the cytotec. Is it true that my baby will have defects. Should I really abort it?

Thanks for putting up your query here

You can not continue with the pregnancy as IUD is still inside.

Vaginal misoprostol (Cytotec) might not have caused any defect in the foetus but while removing the IUD it might cause damage to the foetus.

For abortion you will have to take...

Dear Doctor,
I have undergone Nephrectomy about a year and a half back.
I am having headache and toothache
Could you please confirm the pain killer that is advised to be taken


Thank you for writing in.

Since you have undergone unilateral nephrectomy, you need to be very careful with your remaining kidney.

All the pain killers act by interfering with prostaglandin production in the kidneys. Prostaglandins are required to maintain renal blood flow. Hence prolonged...

hi,,,i used misoprostol (cytotec) about two weeks ago...then bleeding followed and lasted a couple of days after. I've stopped bleeding now but the thing is I still feel funny in my lower abdomen.. i checked my cervix and it seems a little inflamed too. I'm really worried
You need to be examined properly.Im pretty sure you cannot see your cervix by yourself.
You will need a pelvic examination and ultrasound to rule out remnant products of conception.
See your doctor...

Hi Doctor,

I am 28 and have glaucoma in right eye because of trauma in childhood, I have used 4 medicines ( Iotim, Lumigan, Xalatan) over the last 4 years, since i was found to have glaucoma. I have started observing loosening/drooping of right eyelid/muscles, It has become different from left eyelid. Could you please suggest what could have caused it and could it be cured. Pressure is under control for the last 3 years.
Thank for posting your query.
Drooping of the eyelid is a known complication of timolol maleate (Iotim)eye drops. Although prostaglandins(Xalatan) do not per se cause drooping, they are associated with other side effects like pigmentation of the irises and growth of eyelashes....
