I'm 5wks along and I used misoprostol vaginally as well as by mouth but it doesn't seem to be working!!! I repeated the dose five or six times but all I had was minor bleeding and no cramping, etc. I had high fever and diarrhea but otherwise nothing! Wht isn't it working ?

One of these times you are going to end up killing yourself. Do you know that doing abortions by yourself, without Dr supervision, that you can bleed to death?! I dont know where you girls are getting this medication but a lot of the times it doesnt work and you need a surgical abortion anyway. That stuff is toxic to the unborn baby so if you dont get a surgical abortion you can end up having a child with major physical and mental problems and is it fair to do that to your child? If you need an abortion, you should see a physician to oversee your abortion then you need to get yourself on some birth control!! I can understand one mistake, even if I dont condone it, but this doesnt sound like this is your first. So, it was so easy last time you figured you could do it again?
Do you know that aborting a baby like this can scar your uterus and one day when you do want children you may not be able to have any? This is just sheer irresponsibility! Birth control is easy to obtain and inexpensive if you go through a family planning clinic! I know that this is harsh, and I dont know your circumstances, but unless you were raped, there is just no excuse for this! You need to see a health care professional now! If you have a high fever, you could have an infection in your uterus from repeatedly stuffing medication up there! If you let it go, you could lose your uterus and even your life. Please see a doctor asap!
It doesn't always work, but now you could have injured the baby with the med. You need to see a dr. This med is dangerous if used by someone other then the dr, and can cause harm to both you and the infant.
