Misoprostol is given vaginally to dilate cervical opening and it helps to evacuate conception product or retained bits from uterine cavity. Mild to moderate bleeding & abdominal cramp may occur and you need supervision of your gynecologist.

If above procedure fails, you may need to undergo surgical method (D & C) to complete the abortion. After that, you can check it by one ultrasound scan.

Be well and take care.
