The desire to have a successful abortion causes anxiety but, in some cases, this may become a major problem. Due to this anxiety, women find it difficult to properly accomplish all the steps for an abortion and rush into premature wrong decisions.
The only quick way to find out if an abortion worked is through an ultrasound. You should get this ultrasound approximately 7 days after taking Cytotec.
…what if I get the ultrasound before the 7 days?
If you get an ultrasound before the 7 days, then know that there is a risk that your abortion might not be complete yet. The abortion is rarely a one-off event where everything happens in one single moment. We say this because usually there are several bleedings until the process is finished. Therefore, you should wait, control your anxiety and go for an ultrasound scan 7 days after taking the medication.
It is also possible to take a pregnancy test (from the pharmacy or blood tests), but only after a period of 4 weeks. When these type of tests are taken before this period of time, they usually indicate a false positive. This happens because the hormonal levels take a few weeks until they go back to normal.
…what if I don’t get an ultrasound?
It is your choice not to go for an ultrasound scan as you believe your abortion was successful, however, every single day there are cases of women who believed their abortion had worked, but in reality, their pregnancies continued normally. Most of the times, when women find out they are still pregnant, it is already too late, and therefore impossible to repeat a safe medical abortion.
hi. I took 4 cytotec to abort less than a month pregnancy.. I only saw some tissues comes out but I bleeded for one-day. I still feel the symptoms of pregnancy. so I texted for the pregnancy again two days after the abortion and it was positive.. am scared. do I have to repeat the abortion process again or wait
The only way to know for sure, is performing a ultrassound exam. Chemical tests like urine and blood should only show realiable results after 04/05 weeks after the abortion.
Make the ultrassound. If the pregnacy continues, repeat the precedure.

Hi, I used cytotec for termination of my 4 week pregnancy. I put two tables under my tongue and inserted the other two in my vagina.I only had heavy cramping the whole night but no bleeding at all its been 16 hours now. What do I do?
Incorrect. The appropriate is to make use of 06 tablets sublingually. We suggest to read: Instructions for using cytotec
