Side effects & warning signs

After taking Misoclear it is normal to experience moderate to heavy vaginal bleeding and abdominal cramps that decrease after the pregnancy is expelled.

You may also have the following side effects:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Chills and low grade fever
  • Dizziness
  • Diarrhoea
  • Headaches

Pain Management

Most women will experience some stomach cramps and abdominal pain during a medical abortion because uterine contractions are needed to expel or push out the pregnancy.

Most of the time this pain can be managed at home. You can get painkillers from your local clinic or over the counter from your local pharmacy to help manage your pain. Some options they may suggest include:

  • Paracetamol 500mg tablets - Take 1 or 2 tablets every four to six hours when required. Do not take more than 8 tablets in a 24hour period
  • Ibuprofen 200mg tablets - Take 1 or 2 tablets every six to eight hours with food when required

Applying a heat pack or hot water bottle to below the stomach may help to ease the pain. 

As much as possible, you should make sure you are in a relaxed environment with supportive people there to assist you.

If you experience severe or persistent pain, you should go to your medical clinic immediately.

Warning signs

You should seek medical help immediately if you have any of these symptoms, these complications are rare:

  • heavy bleeding continues
  • high fever
  • excess cramping/abdominal pain
  • excess vomiting or diarrhoea
