Welcome and thanks for writing to us
Usually 4 tablets of cytolog or misoprostol are required for the complete process.The duration of bleeding varies from patient to patient , it can last for one week to 10 days.In some cases there are retained products of conception inside so it can last for a longer duration with heavy bleeding and passage of clots.Give her iron supplements.

Welcome once again and sorry for the late reply as there were some emergencies to attend.

If she is having bleeding then please do not give two more tablets as they may cause excessive bleeding.Wait and watch and repeat the urine pregnancy test after a week.
Regarding iron supplements , you can give her ferrous sulphate along with XXXXXXX leafy vegetables and fruits.

Best wishes
Take care
