Dear Abortion Advice from Freaking Out

Dear Abortion Advice:

I took an abortion pill but I’m freaking out because I still feel pregnant.  Can this happen?

Dear Freaking Out:

I found this on the internet that relates to your question:

Continuing pregnancy is a pregnancy that continues to develop even after the use of Mifepristone and Misoprostol. In this case, the abortion has failed completely and the woman remains pregnant. Even if you bleed, you can still have a continuing pregnancy. Bleeding does not mean that you have had a successful abortion. If you still have symptoms of pregnancy such as sore breasts or nausea, you may be experiencing a continuing pregnancy.
