Brief Answer:
Repeat dose should be taken

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
If there was vomiting within 2 hours of taking misoprostol, then it is not effective and the dose should be repeated.
You should repeat the dose of misoprostol to initiate and complete the abortion process.
If there is no bleeding even after 24 hours of taking the repeated dose, then surgical abortion may be required in view of the failure of the medical method.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Hi. I had an abortion on Saturday 24 May 2014. It was surgical abortion. I wasnt given any post counselling to inform me of what to expect or anything. I was only given five tablets to take all 5 at once later the evening. I have been having pain ever since the operation, but it wasnt too bad, it did however move through different parts of my body. But since this afternoon my pain has really become excruciating, so much so that I have to crouch my back when I walk. I have been laying in bed since I got home from work today at 5 and havent been able to do much. I took some Voltaren and it helped ease the pain, but when I woke up tonight the pain became even worse. I feel a burning sensation throughout my entire body and it is more intense in my back and my chest and stomache as well. I really dont know if this is normal. Please help
