Hi Dr,my concern is that i had an abortion with misoprostol,two weeks ago.the nurse gave me twelve tablets of misoprostol to swallow 4 after every three hours.the pregnancy test is still positive and have lost appetite.could it be that am still pregnant?

If a sonogram shows a gestational sac inside the uterus, then the pills unfortunately did not work. You will need to follow up with a doctor to decide how to best move forward. You may be able to attempt the pills again, however, I would recommend, at this point, that you move forward under a doctor's supervision.
