Thanks for your question.
An ultrasound can tell if there is an ongoing pregnancy inside your womb or not. It cannot tell us about any medicine you have taken unless you report it yourself. However if you had only slight bleeding you may still be pregnant & you should report this issue to your treating doctor after you have a scan.
Best of luck. Take care

Thanks for query.
First of all i have to say you should take cytotec under supervision of your doctor.
I would also suggest you should combined it with mifepristone for better result.
Pregnancy test take time to get negative after abortion.
USG is necessary,it shows everthing is clear or not.
Consult doctor without hesitation.
take care
