Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your concern about not becoming pregnant.

What is Prostonol? I am not familiar with this drug and could not find any information.

Misoprostol is a prostaglandin. It works by reducing the amount of acid released by the stomach and protecting the stomach lining, which helps to reduce the risk of stomach ulcers.

Misoprostol may cause abortion, premature birth, or birth defects if taken during pregnancy.

Anonymous, if you must take this drug, it is better that you are not pregnant.

How long have you been trying to become pregnant? If you and your husband have been trying to conceive for at least six months to one year, then speak with your gynecologist, who can rule out an infertility problem.
