I am 22 years,I used cytotec last month to abort a one month's pregnancy

I am 22 years,I used cytotec last month to abort a one month's pregnancy, but this month when I had my period once again,I had heavy bleeding the same as when I had used cytotec. What should I do?

Editor's Comment

I would never recommend taking a drug without medical supervision as it can put you at risk of medical problems. Cytotec is another name for Misoprostal,which is the 2nd drug given in early medical abortions and causes the womb to contract. There is no way of knowing that your abortion was complete, and you should see a doctor to make sure you have no retained pregnancy tissue from your abortion.
