What if there is no bleeding after using the misoprostol?
Self-managed Abortion; Safe and Supported
If after 24 hours the woman has no bleeding, and she is sure that she is pregnant AND that the pregnancy develops in the uterus (not an ectopic pregnancy), then the medicines did not work.
If a woman bled less than her normal menstrual period, if she didn’t see any clots and thinks the abortion didn’t occur, she can use 400 more mcg of misoprostol (2 tablets of 200 mcg or 4 tablets of 100 mcg) under the tongue for 30 minutes. This is the standard treatment for an incomplete miscarriage.
