Take the misprost tablet today.She will bleed like a normal period,but bleeding may be heavy and last upto10-12 days. If its longer than that you need to get an urgent ultrasound and see a doctor.
After 2 wks of the bleeding stopping get an ultrasound.

Medical abortion is to be undertaken only on the advice , prescription and guidance.
A pregnancy first has to be confirmed not just by the urine test, but by a gynecologist.
Exact dating of the pregnancy is very critical, as these pills are effective only up to a particular time.
The exact dose and regimen of the pills has to be clearly understood, as taking them haphazardly puts the patient at risk of severe bleeding, infection, retained products, incomplete abortion requiring surgical termination etc.
Also, after completing the dosage, you need to go for a review check up to confirm that the procedure has been completed.
Without following these guidelines, you put yourself at unnecessary risks.
Take care, and consult a gynecologist at the earliest.
