Brief Answer:
It can take 2-3 days for the bleeding to start.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
After taking mifepristone it may take 2-3 days for the bleeding to start. It is best to wait and take rest of the misoprotol tablets as prescribed by your gynecologist.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Dr. XXXXXXX actually we did not approch any doctor yet. If bleeding is not happening and continuing pregnency is there any problem?
Answered by Dr. Rakhi Tayal 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
It can happen after 3-4 days.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
Bleeding usually happens after 2-3 days. Even if there is no bleeding it can harm the baby and can cause fetal death or placental detachment. If there is no bleeding then it is best to get a D&C done.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
