Question: dear doctor,

I've had unwanted pregnancy so took 2 x 800mg mispristol under my tongue on 26th feb. I'm sure abortion is completed but the blood is running it's partially heavy. it was better 3 days back but again started heavy bleed since last 2 days.

I've attached my CBC and urine test report so you may assist me with my further scope of action. I've gotten severe diarrhoea last night and the stool is totally watery. i feel drained.
