Detailed Question:

I am 27 year old. I missed my periods for one month, last period I had was on 13th Feb,so I went for a home pregnancy test as I had an intercourse with my fiancee in between.

The test showed positive result for pregnancy so I opted for going abortion at home. I took mifepristone and misoprostol tablets.

Yesterday morning at 10, I took one tablet of mifepristone and today morning at 10, i took two tabs of misoprostol.

Could you advice when should I take the next two tabs of misoprostol. 

The pharmacist had advised me to take the next two tabs of misoprostol on Monday night after dinner.
Could you please advice when exactly to take the next two tabs of misoprostol as I am having cramps, diarrohea also like gastric and bloated stomach.

Diagnosis: Early pregnancy

You can take the tablets as advised by your doctor and follow the prescription for abortion.

Abortion is the ending of pregnancy by removing a fetus or embryo before it can survive outside the uterus. An abortion which occurs spontaneously is also known as a miscarriage. An abortion may be caused purposely and is then called an induced abortion, or less frequently, "induced miscarriage". The word abortion is often used to mean only induced abortions. A similar procedure after the fetus could potentially survive
outside the womb is known as a "late termination of pregnancy. 

MTP or medical termination of pregnancy is not a procedure we can perform without a discussion, especially since you also have other symptoms. You can consult with the doctor who prescribed the pills to you or you could opt for a audio/video consultation to take this further.

Advised to do USG early pregnancy and consult with a nearby Gynecologist for further procedure.
