Self-inducing abortion with Cytotec is illegal and dangerous! Abortion can be induced with medicines but only under a gynecologist’s supervision. That bleeding after you took Cytotec is probably due to a possible abortion. A pregnancy test remains positive in the next 2 weeks after an abortion (or delivery) because the body needs time to eliminate the hormone HCG which is released from the embryo and detected by the pregnancy tests. You can’t be sure if your abortion was successful so soon after a trial, but you may check with an echo at your gynecologist.
