Thanks for your query,

In cases where the woman has a failed abortion and then continues the pregnancy to term, the exposure to misoprostol could potentially result in birth defects in the child. You will have to take Mifepristone and misoprostal or you may also need surgical abortion . These medicines you can get only on prescription by a doctor. It is dangerous to take these medicines by yourself because in few cases it may cause excessive bleeding due to incomplete abortion. I suggest you to meet a Obg doctor very soon.

Best of luck and take care..

Hope it helps..
