Thanks for your query
Please try to understand that you should NEVER take medical abortion without medical supervision
A gynecologist should first check you for exact dating of the pregnancy
ALso, she should rule out ectopic pregnancy ( pregnancy outside the uterus )
After that, based on your body weight and other risk factors , the correct dose for medical abortion is prescribed.
Without medical guidance, you might land up with severe bleeding, infection, incomplete abortion ( tissues retained inside ) and various other complications.
You might require surgical termination for failed or incomplete medical abortion.
After Mifepristone, sometimes bleeding does not start, and it is mandatory to take Misoprostol tablets.
However, without examining you, size of pregnancy, and current status after taking Mifepristone, it is not possible to prescribe you further treatment
Please consult your gynecologist at the earliest.
