Abortion/Periods not coming after abortion.


I am from India, my LMP was Ė 15 Aug 12, I had sex with my husband on 1-Sep-12, but unfortunately our protection method failed and I become pregnant. I have a 11 months baby and will not be able to manage two small babies, so on 26 Sep, I took 1 Mifepristone (200mg) tablet and on 27 Sep I had a little bleeding with some clots, then on 28 and 29 Sep I took 4 Misoprostol (200 mcg) tablets{orally}, and my bleeding started and went on for around a week. After this procedure my morning sickness went away and I thought that my abortion was successful, and now on 27-Oct-12 I was expecting my periods, but it didnít come (till 2-Nov-12). Now I am worried like if I am still pregnant.
I want to confirm this by an Ultrasound scan but I am not sure what I should ask to check, like at the time of my first baby my doctor use to give me a form with what all baby development details to be checked during ultrasound scan.
Please tell me if I am still pregnant? And some details about the ultrasound scan through which I can confirm it? And in worst case what should I do next if I am still pregnant.

Just take a urine pregnancy test if you can.  If it is negative, then there is no need to worry.  It can take up to 6-8 weeks to get a period.  If the test is positive then just ask for an ultrasound.
