Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

So to summarize, you were about 5 weeks along, and you took medicine and had bleeding afterwards. One could assume that you aborted, but this remains uncertain based on what you are saying. You need to:
1. Go in for an HCG level
2. The HCG level needs to be repeated 48 hours later to make sure that it is dropping
3. If the HCG level is NOT dropping, then you need an ultrasound
4. If you have any pain, you need to call your doctor immediately

I hope that this helps. If you have more questions, please click on "ASK ME A QUESTION" link above to directly ask me a question!
