Im 23 years old and im 5 1/2 weeks pregnant. I woke up in the morning to find blood on my undies. I went to see a doctor the same day and he said i had a miscarriage. He prescribed cytotec. He told me to take 2 pills every six hours for 24 hours. I tooke the first round yesterday at 5:40 pm and the last round today at 11:40 am. The pain was almost unbearable last night (today barely any cramping) but im just so worried since i didnt bleed much. I usually bleed more when im on my period. No tissue or blood clots were passed. Is that normal? Does that mean i have to go through another round of cytotec or does the fetus have to be sucked out of me? I just want to do it as natural as possible. I cant stand the idea of something with a heartbeat dying inside of me.
Is it normal not to bleed much after taking cytotec?

If you had a miscarriage it would be already gone. The cytotec could do major damage to a fetus if it was there and it didn't cause it to abort. At this point, for me the best thing to do would be to have a surgical abortion, if the dr thinks its still there. Its not a big deal. I'm not in his head but it seems he thinks you already lost the baby, and the cytotec was to make sure you passed all the tissue. Unfortunately cytotec doesn't always do that. What about before you took the cytotec, did you bleed heavily. I'd see the dr and have him check me. It could be you stopped bleeding because its all gone.
