Cytotec contains Misoprostol which causes uterine contraction but it works better if combined with Mifepristone, that causes the disturbances in the uterine environment to favor an abortion. The dosage you have taken is insufficient as is the medication. You should get a trans-vaginal sonogram to see if the uterus has emptied or not. You should consult your gynecologist to assess the situation and further management.Take care.
