Taken pills vaginally for medical abortion. Prolonged bleeding, no clots. Successful abortion?

Hi I had a medical abortion . Took the first pill orally on sat morning and Sunday night I had to insert 4 pills vaginally. 45 min later the bleeding started. I had no cramps or any major eye catching clots come out. Today is wed night and still bleeding like a period but never had cramps and only very tiny clots. Is there a possibility this abortion can turn out successful? I m nervous

With the Mifepristone-Misoprostol combination, abortion is successful in 95-98% of cases. Bleeding is normal for up to 2 weeks. If the bleeding does not lessen and turns out to be heavy, you should see your consultant to check for an incomplete abortion. You can have a pelvic/trans-vaginal sonogram to check for retained products after a few days. Success rate depends on at what stage of pregnancy you have taken this medication as medical abortion is best done up to 8-9 weeks only. Please see your consultant for further care. Wish you good health.
