Hi , I am sorry for your loss

An abortion is called incomplete when some of the products of the pregnancy remain in the uterus, it is associated with increased risk of infection.

Treatment can involve either the use of medication (such as misoprostol) or a D and C (dilation and curretage).
Misoprostol cannot be used: if there is any history of allergy, signs of infection, if the person is thought to have excess blood loss and is unstable

I hope this helps and wish you the best
