I am roughly about 5wks and 3days pregnant (counting from the day I had sex). Today is Wednesday. Last Friday night I inserted 2 cytotec into my vagina and slept. I had mild cramping during that night but no bleeding. I started to bleed lightly on Monday to present with no cramps or major pain. Is the fetus still alive? What to do now?
I'm not sure you have taken enough Cytotec?
"After the first dose of Misoprostol a woman should expect bleeding and cramps. Bleeding mostly starts within four hours after using the pills, but sometimes later. Bleeding is often the first sign that the abortion starts. If the abortion continues, bleeding and cramps become more severe. Bleeding is often more and heavier than a normal menstruation, and there can be clots. The longer the pregnancy, the more heavy the cramps and the bleeding will be. If the abortion is complete, the bleeding and the cramps diminish. The moment of abortion can be noticed with a peak of heavier blood loss and more pain and cramps. "
