HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Mifepristone reaches it peak level in the blood 90 minutes after it is taken so it would have been absorbed before the vomiting occured which was at 120 mins after using the medication.
With this is in mind , you can continue on the protocol your doctor would have given you for the medication.

The use of the medical abortive agents can result in bleeding and cramping abdominal pain especially after the misoprostol is taken. This protocol has an effective rate of 92% and should be effective for you.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
