Cytotec - An effective way to prevent motherhood
Abortion is much vaunted for when pregnancy is forced on a woman. It may be through rape, unwanted sex or failure of contraceptive methods. In some countries, where surgical abortion is illegal, women use Cytotec as their last resort. It is safe and reliable method of abortion which is a boon for those women who are afraid of going through surgical procedure.
Cytotec mimics the actions played by prostaglandins. Prostaglandins bring about reduction in the level of the hormone progesterone. It is a vital hormone during pregnancy which is necessary for carrying the fetus. In the absence of progesterone, the womb gets contracted, expelling the fetus. Termination occurs through abdominal cramps followed by bleeding.
Cytotec - the right Administration
Cytotec is available in the form of 200mcg pills. Use of Cytotec is recommended only when pregnancy has not progressed beyond 12 weeks. In this time period, Total 4 tablets of 200mcg are to be taken either vaginally or orally. If this attempt is not successful, the dosage is to be repeated. In the period of 13 to 20 weeks, 2 tablets are sufficient. i.e. after 20 weeks, only one pill of 200mcg is to be taken.
