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?
