What if you don’t bleed after taking the medication?
If you do not start bleeding within 4 hours of taking Misoprostol, you can take another dose of Misoprostol. If you still do not bleed within 24 hours and you are positive that you are pregnant, then you either have a continuing pregnancy or an ectopic pregnancy. In this situation, you should have an ultrasound. If you experience complications such as fever, faintness, or extreme abdominal pain, then you should seek medical help immediately, because you could have a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. If you have an ectopic pregnancy, the medical practitioner will treat it. This procedure is not considered an abortion and it is life-threatening if left untreated. If the ultrasound shows a continuing pregnancy, you can do the medical abortion again.
