If they sent you home fine and didn't tell you there would be defects, then as far as they can tell (and of course nothing is ever 100%), the fetus will develop free from consequence of those medications. The risk they pose is the possibility of a miscarriage (medical term is 'spontaneous abortion), which is why they're used in attempts to terminate, not in the risk for defects.

If the pain does not begin to get better or worsens,then go back to the hospital.
