Yo need to repeat the medication.  It sounds like you did not pass the pregnancy


In countries where abortion is illegal, Misoprostol alone can be used to cause an abortion. Incorrect use of Misoprostol can be harmful for the health of a woman!!
To cause an abortion, a woman must put 4 pills of of 200 micrograms (in total 800 mcg) Misoprostol under the tongue. Do not swallow the pills (at least until 30 minutes after putting the tablets under the tongue!!)
After 3 hours she should put another 4 pills of Misoprostol under the tongue.
After 3 hours she should put another 4 pills of Misoprostol under the tongue again for a third time. Do not swallow.

If a woman uses Arthrotec to induce an abortion, she should let the 4 tablets dissolve under her tongue until the outer mantle is dissolved (half an hour). She should spit out the inner hard tablet. The inner tablet is diclofenac, a painkiller and it is better not to swallow the inner tablets.
