My problem is some OB/GYNs state that in these studies, the participants weren't given enough time for the drug to really work. That if given correctly, it really can help soften and dilate the cervix.
I am worried because I don't want to take anything that will cause me any more pain at my appointment. However, when I had my first IUD inserted it was done during my period so my cervix was already dilated. Since I no longer have a period, that can't be a factor with this go around.
Has anyone been in this situation? Have you used Misoprostal? Advice?
Here are the links to two studies I found.
