Brief Answer: EXPLAINED BELOW Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us wtih your health concern. After taking the medical abortion pills, bleeding can occur anytime within 24 - 48 hours. So please wait for 48 hours more. However, I have to tell you that it is a grave mistake to take these pills by yourself, without medical supervision. The pregnancy has to be confirmed by a gynecologist, apart from a positive urine test. Then the pregnancy has to be dated accurately by ultrasound scan , and this will confirm that the pregnancy is not extra uterine ( ectopic ) - which is a rare possibility. Then the drugs should be taken by a gynecologist's prescription. Medical abortion can be a failure in 4 % of cases, and then surgical abortion would be required. Without medical guidance, there are rare risks such as - uncontrolled bleeding, infection, retained products of conception, undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy etc. If you have not consulted a doctor, do so right away. If you have, wait for 2 days more, if you do not bleed, re consult. In any case, it is mandatory to have a follow up ultrasound scan 15 days after the pill intake to confirm that abortion was complete. All the best. Please feel free to discuss further.
