Question: i am 5 week pregnant from HCG beta test. Unfortunately you don't have mifepristone in Pakistan so took 4 Cytotec Vaginally. after 3 hours e.g. 12am I had severe cramping, nausea, vomiting and upset tummy. using heating pad for the cramp pain and took 400mcg of Ibrufon. it's around 2:30am here but still did not bleed and cramps are getting better but barely have energy to even type this. i want the abortion to be completed if you can guide me from here?

Brief Answer:
Only D&C can help you.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query. I've checked the report.

Only Cytotec cannot help in abortion. Mifepristone is essential to induce the bleeding. Severe cramping, nausea and vomiting are side effects of Cytotec.

You can go for a surgical abortion- D&C after consulting your gynaecologist.

I hope this answers your query.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Brief Answer:
You can have two more tablets vaginally.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Cytotec can start a bleeding but mifepristone is necessary to separate the placenta from the uterus. In case the bleeding is heavy then you can have two tablets now vaginally to have a sustained effect.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
