I am so sorry you are experiencing a miscarriage.
I have had a chemical pregnancy and had heavy bleeding and severe cramping for three days, without having taken misoprostol.
I'd imagine a few days of bleeding and cramps is completely normal although it wouldn't hurt to email or call your clinic to double check what the norm is.
I wish you the best.

With inducing a miscarriage at 7 weeks you should experience contractions and expel the full pregnancy along with your lining etc. I personally was given a choice of oxycodone or morphine to take also for the pain. There would normally be a lot of blood and often large blood clots (I had blood clots the size of small lemons). You would also see the sac come out which is clear/translucent and about the size of a loonie at that point. This can be extremely traumatic. The "main event" should start about 6 hours after the misoprostol, and last several hours. I expelled one last random large clot about 5 days later. I bled heavily for 5 weeks straight, worst case scenario but not impossible. You should be checked by ultrasound for remaining tissue afterwards -- if anything remains, you'd need a D&C as it could otherwise cause infection. I don't remember the exact dose (how many pills vaginally) I took, but I'm wondering about your dose as it shouldn't take a full day to kick in. Take care of yourself through this horribly difficult time.
