Cytotec is also known as Misoprostol Arthrotec, Oxaprost , Cyprostol, Mibetec, Prostokos or Misotrol.

Cytotec is not advised for women more than 9 weeks pregnant -- that's 2 months.  3 months pregnant implies at least 13 weeks gone, though.

Even when taken as directed, Cytotec is only effectively about 80% of the time, up to the 9th week of pregnancy.  It is up to 97% effective it taken with another drug, Mifepristone (also known as the abortion pill, RU 486, Mifegyn, Mifeprex).

All of the drugs mentioned can cause serious side effects.  They are possibly still effective for terminating pregnancy if taken after 9 weeks, but the resulting pregnancy loss is very hard on the body.  Moreover, the abortion can be incomplete.  If the abortion is incomplete, parts of the placenta may remain behind in the mother until they start to rot.  These retained fetal products in the mother can lead to death, if they are not removed (has to be done by surgery).  This is part of why self-administered abortions after 9 weeks pregnant are strongly not advised...

Although I appreciate that in some countries, women do not have that option.

If you're friend has access to legal medical care to help her with the abortion should really must seek it, for her own health and safety.  Otherwise, please contact  Women on the Web, for online support about what to do next.

I've browsed the website that you suggested women on web because I'm dealing now with an unwanted pregnancy...the donation was so expensive when converted to our peso value.
Abortion here is not legal, can you please suggest another site where some people can help me?

For some I think it's effective but for some, it's not. Usually if someone tried to abort their baby using cytotec and it did not went through, chances are the baby might have some defects.. The baby will suffer. Why does she get pregnant and she'll just want to abort it anyways?

Cytotic is used for the treatment of stomach ulsers . Cytotic can cause abortion, premature birth, birth defects and rupture of the uterus. It is very dangerous to try and abort a fetus on your own, please advise your friend to go to a clinic for birth control or talk to her own family doctor.
