Question
Dear doctor
my partner had a pregnancy test on 12th feb (last cycle dat was 8th jan). She took mifepriston on 12th itself and took misoprostal on 14th feb. After which there was cramping but not a heavy needing. Is that a sign of failed abortion. Please help

Answer
Dear Prerit,
if the test was positive febr 12th this was a very young pregnancy of only 3-4 weeks.
With the combination of mife and miso which were taken correctly, this pregnancy is terminated.
I am 95 % sure that there was an abortion. The only way to be 100 % sure is to do a new pregnancy
test in 10 days.
Best regards,
ShanYiSheng
