Hi Rose,

Welcome to HCM.

You have not mentioned whether you had ultrasound Study done.
It is absolutely essential that an ultra sound study should be done to confirm the gestational age and that it is in the uterine cavity and not ectopic, before medical termination of pregnancy, is attempted. More over it has to be under strict direction and supervision of proper medical expert in that field.
If you have not yet consulted an obstetrician. I suggest you immediately consult one and you will certainly need an ultrasound study to exclude ectopic gestation, in which case the medicines you have take will cause more complications than relief.
