How does Misoprostol work?
Misoprostol is an artificial made steroid that hampers with the development of progesterone, a hormone that is essential to the progress of pregnancy. By stopping the development of progesterone the stimulate the escalation of the uterine lining which nourishes the evolving embryo (fetus). This leads to suppressing the normal utrine contractions which eject the embryo growing on the uterine wall. It fills the chemoreceptor are which are normally reserved for progesterone, but doesn't allow it to disseminate the progesterone signal. Failure to receive the signal, the body closes all formation of the uterus and inaugurates the normal menstrual process. The embryo bereaved of nutrients separates from the uterine wall and gets flushed out of the body.
