Brief Answer:
examination and ultrasound needed

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.
The efficacy of mensovit plus tablet as a abortifacient is not proved yet.
So, you once consult gynecologist, get examined and go for ultrasound.
Ultrasound is needed to confirm the intrauterine pregnancy and to estimate the gestational age.
Then depending on the gestational age, with your doctor's advice you can choose the method of abortion.
Up to 8 weeks of gestation medical abortion with tablets is possible.
Mensovit tablets may not affect the baby in future.
But if you want to continue the pregnancy, you have to continue with regular antenatal checkups and ultrasound examinations to detect any abnormality at the earliest.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
regular antenatal checkups

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
If the bleeding didn't start after 48 hours of intake of mensovit tablets, possibly that may not help further.
You can consult gynecologist and take generally prescribed tablets for abortion with her advice.
If you want to continue the pregnancy, undergo ultrasound to confirm the well being of the fetus.
And continue with regular antenatal checkups and ultrasound examinations. .
Mensovit plus is a recently approved drug by FDA. So there are no sufficient studies to find out its effect on baby.
Take care.
