  • What is duvadilan?
Duvadilan is a medication often prescribed to pregnant women who are experiencing stomach cramps and spotting. It can also be prescribed to women who have had a miscarriage during an earlier pregnancy. A further usage of duvadilan is to relax the pelvic muscles in women during a premature birth.

  • Why do pregnant women experience stomach cramps and spotting?
Stomach cramps during pregnancy are usually harmless, and can be caused by a number of factors, including stress, indigestion, or simply the fact that the body is adjusting to accommodate a new baby. Spotting can be caused by the different hormones that are released into the body during pregnancy, or by the implantation of the fertilized egg into the wall of the womb.

  • Where is duvadilan available?
Duvadilan is not available worldwide, because there is a mixed opinion amongst medical professionals.

There are very few serious risks associated with duvadilan, and taking duvadilan should not hamper or hinder the development of a baby.

Do not exceed the prescribed dose, and inform your doctor straight away if you feel that the medication is not right for you.
