If you were induced with a CERVIDIL insert...NOT CYTOTEC ("the little pill" that has to be replaced every 4 hours) I'd like to hear your story.
No offense to anyone who has had Cytotec. But there are MAJOR MAJOR differences between these drugs.
-Cytotec is not FDA approved for induction. Cervidil is.
-Cytotec can cause contractions. Cervidil ONLY ripes the cervix. Any contractions a women has are on her own accord after her cervix has ripened from the Cervidil.
-Cytotec has a list of risk a mile long. Cervidil has minimal risk which the FDA says can be reversed in 3-12 minutes by simply removing the insert.
-Cytotec can not be removed because it disolves. Cervidil inserts can be.
Anyways my doctor says my blood pressure has gotten to the point where mine and my baby's lives are at risk. She wanted to use Cytotec but I said no so we're usig Cervidil.
I'm just nervous and want to hear other mom's stories!
