Early pregnancy, taken MTprost kit, have intense cramping with little bleeding. What can I expect next?

I am 8 weeks pregnant, 27 and living abroad where terminating a pregnancy is illegal. I bought a MTPROST kit (combipack of mifepristone and misoprostol tablets). I took the first tablet of mifepristone (200mg) orally at 10pm and then at 10am the following day I inserted 2 tablets of misoprostol tablets (200mcg each) vaginally. Now it is approximately 4 hours after the misoprostol tablets and there is serious cramping but very little blood . Could somebody please advise me as to an expected timeline of what should/will be happening next? Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Thanks for posting your query.
Mifepristone stops fetal cardiac activity & misoprost expels products of conception out of womb.
So you are having cramping pain due to misoprost induced uterine contractions.
Now you can have bleeding slightly more than your periods, but if you start passing blood clots; report your gynaecologist as soon as possible.
However if everything goes normal, get an ultrasound scan done after one week to know whether your womb is empty or not.
Thank you.
