If the miscarriage doesn’t start by itself you can choose to induce it with medicine (Cytotec).
If you want, an appointment will be made with a gynecologist. The gynecologist will insert the tablets into you vaginally, or explain how you can do it yourself. If the next day a miscarriage hasn’t occurred, tablets will be inserted once more. If this does not bring about the expected result, curettage will have to occur.
Advantages of medicine;
- If the result is as hoped, curettage is no longer necessary.
Disadvantages of medicine;
- Sometimes people find it scary to experience a spontaneous miscarriage at home.
- One of the possible side-effects of Cytotec is nausea.
- It is possible that Cytotec doesn’t, or only partially, induce a miscarriage. As a result, curettage might still be necessary.
