Cervical dilatation with meteneprost vaginal suppositories in first trimester abortion.

Abstract

Forty nulliparous women were treated with vaginal suppositories containing Meteneprost (9-deoxo-16, 16-dimethyl-9-methylene PGE2) (Upjohn Co.) 10 mg or placebo prior to termination of first trimester pregnancy in a double-blind study. The suppository was inserted three hours before vacuum aspiration. The cervical diameter as measured by the size of the largest Hegar dilatator inserted without resistance was significantly larger in women treated with Meteneprost. The operative blood loss was also reduced in the Meteneprost group.
