Self-induced abortion is underreported because only those who need medical assistance afterwards would ever disclose it. What woman wants that stigma? How would you like to be called a murderer because you couldn't afford to go to a clinic? Safe, available, and rare!

I've used Cytotec from twice in the privacy of my own home, no one even knew but me and my sister. No one ever knew that I was even pregnant. The drug cost $80 on the internet, no prescription needed. No side effects either time and both were complete abortions. I passed the fetus within hours of incerting the pills. This method is used in third world countries all of the time where abortion is illegal. I personally believe this method should be recognized as a legal abortion method here. It was less tramatic and painless.

I was 8.5 weeks pregnant when a sonogram revealed my baby died, had no heartbeat and quit growing at 6.5 weeks. I had a missed miscarriage. This was prescribed to me, and I read all the reviews on here before using it from EXTRAMEDRX . COM because I was terrified I would have a lot of pain. I can tell you - I had no pain using this drug. I was prescribed hydrocodone which I took 45 min prior to taking this drug orally; then another dose of Cytotec (miso...) two hours later. I am now not even on pain meds and I feel fine, am in day two of using this. If I ever have to go through a miscarriage again I will definitely go this route, not a D&C, to save $$$. Painless, and useful. Good luck and hope this review helps.
