Question
Hi Dr.

I have taken 200mg mifepristone orally post 24hrs inserted 2 x 200mg misoprostol. It ls been already 8 hrs there is no bleeding shall I take the balance misoprostol after 16hrs or what else I should should do?
Awaiting your response.

Answer
Hello, Biny,

Whatever you do, do NOT insert any more misoprostol pills! They can cause a deadly infection that can kill you within hours!

How far along are you? Are you measuring from your last menstrual period, or from when you think you conceived? Do you have access to medical care? What city do you live in or near? I can provide you with some contact information but I need to know the city so I know which group. Please let me know. Thank you.

Expertise

I can help women with the consideration of their decision, and with resources, and I can share my own experiences as the mother of seven and grandmother of eleven. My approach is to show love and concern, and help women work through the issues, emotional, spiritual, practical. I also help women deal with boyfriend and family issues. I am not a doctor, but I have done extensive medical research, so I may be able to help with information. I am female. When you write, if you are or were pregnant, please tell me how far along you were or are, and if you have had an abortion, please tell me what kind. Thank you.

Experience

I have been working with women who are considering abortion for several years. I also work with women who have had abortions. Our family has also experienced adoption, so I can talk about that as well.

Education/Credentials
I am mostly self-taught. I also studied midwifery for awhile. I have spent years doing research on this topic. In fact, I have been doing research and working in this area since the early 1970's. I have been helping women online for a few years, under the guidance of a woman who was formally training in counseling.
