pill to open cervix
My doctor gave me 4 pills to take for cervical stenosis tonite as I am having an endometrial biopsy tomorrow. What are the pills? She said they may cause cramping.


This discussion is related to what does a closed cervix mean?.

What does it say on the bottle? The pharmacy would have printed the name of the medication on the bottle.

No pharmacy bottle. 4 pills given to me in a small envelop at the office.

I'm guessing it's probably misoprostol. It's frequently prescribed for helping soften the cervix to assist with various procedures. I had to take it the night before getting my IUD. Yes it caused cramps and bleeding but I've had labor pain level cramps before so it wasn't a big deal for me. Other women who aren't as used to bad cramps might find it more painful. But it helps get the cervix ready to be opened easier.
