thanks for your query.
Medical abortion should never be taken without medical supervision.
You have already made a mistake by taking the MTP pill without medical guidance.
you should visit a gynecologist at the earliest.
First, the pregancy has to be confirmed by her, and not just by a home pregnancy kit.
Secondly, exact dating of pregnancy is vital, as medical abortion acts within a narrow range.
Thirdly, its important to know if the pregnancy is inside the uterus, as in rare cases it may not be, and then, taking medical abortion pills unknowingly can be dangerous.
Also, she would guide you about the correct dose and the way the further tablets have to be taken.
Fourthly, after the completion of the procedure, you need a follow up visit to check whether any tissue is still left behind.
Without following this protocol, you have various risks such as severe bleeding, severe infection, failure of treatment and hence need for surgical abortion etc.
please do not be so casual about this, and consult a gynecologist at the earliest.
take care.

You are carrying 1 month pregnancy and want to abort with medicine.
First take Tab Mifepristone 200mg (ideally 600mg) on D1,after 48 hrs take 2 Tab Misoprostol 200mg in the morning and under supervision of gynecologist/doctor. May need double dose sometimes.
Soon after taking Tab Misoprostol,abdominal cramp and vaginal bleeding start within 7 days and next period may be earlier/delayed.
Post pill abortion,do a USG lower abdomen to check retained bits/conceptional products if any and may need D &C to complete abortion.
Practice safe sex by using safe period/OCP/other methods to prevent unwanted pregnancy.
Be well.
