First day of last normal period was 28 December 2015 my cycle is 26 days. Tested positive for pregnancy on 24 January. Took cytotoxic 2 tabs vaginally last week but bled lightly passed a small clot. Never bled again. I repeated yesterday by taking 2 tabs vaginally and 1 under the tongue. I had a gush of blood and clots (moderate), but today the bleeding has stopped, there s still light abdominal discomfort. Checked to feel if the cytotec has dissolved and it hasn t, plus the cervix feels really large. Abortion is illegal where I live. I feel it s not a complete abortion, should I give it time? How will I know it s complete?

Hello, I m 26 and had a surgical abortion on December 5th 2013, I was 6 weeks pregnant. I had the contraceptive implant fitted at the same time. An ultrasound later that day showed some retained tissue and on the 7th I was given a half dose of the abortion pill to flush the remainder out. I had heavy bleeding and pain for a few days but it settled. However, 5 months down the line I am still having very spotty bleeding, no pain and very light but probably on average 4 days out of 7 every week. I know the implant can cause irregular bleeding but I also notice on a regular basis, tiny scraps of tissue after I pass urine, there is no blood, just a number of pieces of tissue ranging from 2-15mm long. Can you offer any advice? Thank you.
