Hello and welcome,

I understand the case.

You did not have bleeding after cytotec. Then it is possible that the uterus was not cleared of the pregnancy as you have not passed any pieces and blood. An ultrasound will be needed for confirming if the abortion was complete. The HCg level may be going down as the baby may have aborted but it is still inside the uterus [missed abortion].

Also it is better to use mifepristone along with misoprostol [ cytotec] for getting an abortion as they are more effective.

So get an ultrasound done for confirmation. If it is still inside you may need a small surgical procedure for removing it.

Hope this satisfies your query. Do not worry, these are common issues.
Thanks for using HCM.
