Abortion induced by this method and spontaneous miscarriage clinically looks the same.No one can make the difference.For an incomplete abortion Dilatation and currettage is needed.
BLEEDING AFTER THE ABORTION:
Bleeding starts usually 4 hours after taking the drug which indicates the initiation of abortion and continues along with cramps till the abortion is complete.if the bleeding and cramps diminish it means that the abortion has completed.now you need to have an ultrasound after a few days to confirm that the process is completed.
Bleeding continues lightly one to three weeks after the abortion, but sometimes shorter or longer. Every woman’s body is different.
The normal menstrual period mostly returns after four to six weeks.
If bleeding doesn’t happen after taking 3 doses you need to take the medicine again after a few days.
The most common side effects are nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. A woman can also have some fever. These are generally less severe if Misoprostol is used vaginally.
