Oxytocin belongs to a group of medicines called oxytocics: it makes the muscles of the uterus (womb) contract, helping to push out your baby. It is used in childbirth, in certain types of miscarriage and to prevent or control bleeding after delivery of your baby.

Syntocinon is given as an intravenous infusion (drip) into one of your veins and causes contraction of the muscles of the womb. It may be used:

  • To start or help contractions during childbirth (labour induction).
  • To help in the management of a miscarriage.
  • In the prevention and control of haemorrhage (bleeding) after delivery of your baby.
  • During a caesarean section.
