I appreciate your query.
You sound quite agitated and panicky.
Please calm down.
I will be doing my best to guide you through this answer.
You mentioned that you tested positive for pregnancy on 27th October.
Ipill is an emergency contraceptive, to be used within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse.
Mifepristone followed by the 4 tablets of misoprostol is the recommended dosage for medical abortion.
Also, you took just mifepristone a month back, so there is no point of taking Misoprostol now after a month.
Also, you mention that you got a negative pregnancy test in november, so it is possible that Mifepristone alone worked for you.
Did you have bleeding and passage of fleshy mass after taking Mifepristone ?? If yes, probably it worked for the abortion, though ideally it should have been taken in conjunction with Misoprostol.
You still have not got your periods .
It is possible after medical abortion for the menstrual pattern to be altered, so you might now have a new date for your menstrual periods.
However, keeping in mind all the confusion so far, the best course of action for you is to visit a gynecologist at the earliest.
She would confirm whether you completely aborted, and also prescribe you proper contraceptive measures in future, since you are not at all keen on conceiving.
Please do not consume any more medications without proper consultation and diagnosis.
Hope this helped you.

Thanks for the query.
Usually I pill will not be useful after 72 hours of the intercourse.
If pregnancy is not there, as you took the i pill in the second half of the cycle it might have postponed your periods.
You better go for ultrasound which will clarify the doubt.
No need to pay for public forum questions.

Take care.
