Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
First of all cytotec is not a very faithful drug to complete the procedure.So, you need to be vigilant.Wait for 2 weeks and then either proceed for a pregnancy testing or better, go for a transvaginal scan.A positive pregnancy testing will tell you that most probably, the procedure is incomplete.yes, do not do it now as it will give you a positive result always as it is too early for the hormones to fade out from your system.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
