Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for asking us about Misoprostol side effects, especially for a woman with endometriosis.

Misoprostol is currently only approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US for the prevention and treatment of gastric ulcers resulting from chronic administration of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).

In some countries, misoprostol is used for the treatment of missed and incomplete miscarriages, the induction of abortion, and cervical preparation before uterine instrumentation, induction of labor and postpartum hemorrhage prophylaxis and treatment.

Anonymous, have you been prescribed, recommended or given this drug? When misoprostol is used for reproductive health issues, different doses are given. I urge you to discuss the potential side effects of this drug if you have been diagnosed with endometriosis. Your health care provider is your best resource.
