if the scan after the first dose of pill and bleeding shows clot inside then then the next step should be to do a dilatation and curettage of the uterus

the retained clot is usually the retained products of conception

which fails to come out completely with the bleeding

the clot has to be cleaned soon and if left inside it will lead to adhesions and infection
