Thanks for writing to us.
Taking only cytotec that too without a medical supervision is dangerous. It must be accompanied with mifepristone for the fetus to detach from the uterus. Such kind of self medication may cause serious pain abdomen and bleeding.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
