Medical termination - is this normal?

After coming to the very painful decision to terminate my pregnancy I went for a medical termination yesterday. I was 6 + 4 weeks.

I had the tablets on the same day and by 11am was home. I had cramping on and off and then at 4:30pm started bleeding lightly. I passed a few clots about the size of a £1 or 50p coin and the pain was really quite painful by then but soon calmed down again. I don’t think either of the clots were the actual pregnancy but I can’t be sure.

In total I’ve had nowhere near as much blood as I would have for a normal period and am a little concerned that it hasn’t worked, it’s been 32 hours since the tablets were inserted.

Is this normal? Has anyone had any experience they could share?

This was such a terrible decision in the first place and I’m not sure I could cope with it failing and having to go back to the clinic again.

The amount people bleed varies however as same day is lower rate of success there's no harm in ringing up, did they give you a phone number? Phone up and ask they may ask you to wait until you're supposed to take the pregnancy test
