Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   Dr. XXXXXXXX here
User :   hell doctor
User :   sorry hello
Doctor :   bleeding occurs after 5-7 days of taking the last pill (MT pill)
User :   doctor i took misoprostal yesterday
User :   and bleeding occured
Doctor :   the positive test shows that you are pregnant, it takes about 72 hours after the abortion for HCG levels to come down
User :   oh ok
Doctor :   is the bleeding continuing?
User :   yes
Doctor :   is it heavy with clots and cramps?
Doctor :   when was your last menstrual periods?
User :   no so heavy but it has clots
User :   i had my last period on Aug 29
Doctor :   did you confirm gestational age before starting MT pill?
User :   i missed my period on sep 29
User :   yes
User :   doctor wen i have to check again with home pregnancy test
Doctor :   if the gestational age is more than 6 weeks, then you might need a D&C to be done to completely evacuate the uterus as MT pill may be effective in causing complete evaculation
User :   what is D and c
Doctor :   i would recommend you to check witrh an ultrasound scan after 3 days of bleding to ensure whether uterus is empty or not
User :   ok
Doctor :   if not found to be empty, then proceed with visiting a gynecologist
User :   ok doctor
Doctor :   for getting D&C (dilatation and curettage) done
User :   ok
Doctor :   for completing the abortion process
User :   ok
Doctor :   you can check HCG levels after 3-5 days of stopping of bleeding or D&C.
