I had it. The dr told me the cytotec didn't induce labor just ripens the cervix and makes it progress a bit better...
Bs I had it at 7pm and at 9pm I had contractions 3 mins apart instantly and I started to bleed really bad. I ended up with an emergency csection like 16 hours later for a placental abruption. While I don't think the cytotec caused the abruption I dot think I'd allow them to do it again with the cytotec.
I was given Cytotec and was told I had no other choice because of my insurance (medicaid)..so I went with it.
They inserted it at 10pm, I was already 2cm. By 7am I was still exactly the same and they broke my water. The cytotec did absolutely nothing for me whatsoever. I wouldn't recommend it. If you have a choice, choose something else.
I ended up needing an emergency c-section as well but I doubt it was because of the cytotec. Being induced all together has a higher c-section rate.
Tell them absolutely not. They tried to give me that. When I refused they tried just pitocin. When that didn't work an intern suggested a foley bulb which I accepted. You have to be a tiny bit dialated for it though.
