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.

My daughter had an abortion seven weeks ago and is still bleeding and clotting. She has been to her gynocologist with these issues but still is having the problem. She had an ultrasound and blood work done to see if she was still pregnant or had pregnancy tissue left in her uterus. The doctornsaid she is fine and the bleeding will stop. Some times it stops but when least expected she will bleeds through her clothes profusely. Her tampon comes out and so does large clots with bright red blood. It is not her period! She is seeing her doctor tomorrow for more answers to this issue. Could there have been damage to her uterus during the abortion? I think her doctor wants to do an abalation? /D&C? Do you think this is the answer or do you have any other recommendations. She can t live a normal life at the moment because of this excessive and unpredictable bleeding. Thank you for your help.
