Is it normal to stop bleeding 5 days post medical abortion?

Hi, so I had a medical abortion recently (less than 5 weeks pregnant and the transvaginal scan said the embryo couldn’t be visualised yet/ it’s also my first pregnancy). After I was administered 4 pills of Misoprostol vaginally at the hospital, I started bleeding 2 hours later but it was like a regular period (a little heavier than usual and some clots/tissue much later in the day). I’ve been reading stories about intense pain and cramping etc. but haven’t experienced any at all. I took a pain med on the first day expecting a lot of pain but all I felt was some pressure in my abdomen for a few hours and a heating pad helped. It’s been around 5 days since then (proper bleeding for 2-3 days and very light bleeding on the 4th day and spotting on the 5th day). Today I stopped bleeding. Is this normal?

It is quite common to get different experiences in a medical abortion. Some people face severe pain, but others do not. Nevertheless, bleeding and not feeling much pain seems to be not a big deal at the moment. Every person has a different response to the drugs. Please keep an eye on symptoms such as heavy bleeding, severe pain, or high fever and alert your gynecologist in case of any. In addition, keep a low-stress pace, rest well, and fulfil the post-abortion aftercare recommendations you were provided with.
