since there is no history available from you of the 5 months period in between the two D&C , i assume that you had normal cycles, until you conceived again.

zitotec has misoprostol used for medical termination of pregnancy.
medical termination is not a full proof method for termination.
most of the times the bleeding continues for more then 5 to 7 days due to retained products of conception. so the next step to be followed is D&C .
if the bleeding continues it is much much more harmful then D&C.
so in the present situation you have to undergo one D&C to stop bleeding.
following which you can choose from the wide array of contraceptive methods, as frequent and repeated D&C is very harmful and decreases the chances of conception.
take care of your self.

as you are still having bleeding it indicates the incomplete abortion.
So, you have to for D & C. B y doing that remaining products can be evacuated.
Not only repeated D & Cs, repeated induced abortions are also dangerous.
As present there is no option, you go for D & C. Next time use proper contraceptive methods to prevent pregnancy.
Improve your hemoglobin status and general health before conceiving next time. Take at least 3 months for next pregnancy.
take care
