Brief Answer:
To be taken under the guidance of an OBGYN specialist

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Pregnancy of about 4 weeks can be terminated by medical method using tablet mifepristone and misoprostol.
However, these medicines should be taken under the guidance of an OBGYN specialist after proper examination.
The pain and bleeding starts within 24 hours of taking misoprostol.
The bleeding is slightly more than the periods and there is cramping pain in the lower abdomen.
If the bleeding is excessive or pain is unbearable, then you should consult your OBGYN specialist immediately.

Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further queries.
