Doctor :   Hi
User :   hello
User :   i just had an abortion and now some things are not normal and i am abbit worried
User :   i went to the toilet the other night and there was a massive thick jelly like 3cm ball in my underwear
User :   it looked ripped
User :   i was wondering if that was normal?
User :   i also have been suffering major cramps and pains
User :   they are very extreme
User :   i think there has been a problem with the abortion
User :   i was wondering if this was something to be worried about
Doctor :   Was it natural abortion or induced by doctor?
User :   doctor
Doctor :   Do you have fever and weakness with body pains?
User :   yes
Doctor :   When was the abortion done?
User :   7 days ago
Doctor :   So were you normal immediately after that and the problems started now?
User :   problem has gotten worse, but has been there since it happened
Doctor :   Thick jelly like red clots are common after abortion
User :   it was much different than a clot
User :   it looked like it could have been the embreo or the placenta
Doctor :   But sinnce it is more than 7 days I suggest you a reexamination by the doctor?
User :   or part of it anyway
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   Are you back?
User :   could it be part of the baby left?
User :   yes i am
User :   sorry about that
Doctor :   At which week of pregnancy was the abortion done?
User :   9 weeks
Doctor :   9 Weeks is a safe stage of getting aborted
Doctor :   After the abortion, was an Ultrasound scan done?
User :   i know, but im still worried because of the size, shape and consistancy of the 'blob'. it wasnt a blod clot, it was much different.
Doctor :   For one week post abortion, you will see the products of the conception keep discharging per vagina
User :   and no, there was no ultrasound done afterwards
Doctor :   The thing which you saw has a high possibility of such product
User :   oh okay, that makes me feel a little better. is it possibble to do a follow up examination with a gp? i am in a different state to where i had the abortion done.
Doctor :   Yes
User :   could there be any chance of this causing harm to myself.?
Doctor :   You can get it done
Doctor :   Also, you will be recommended an Ultrasound scan and Serum Beta HCG levels
Doctor :   to check if the products are completely evacuated
Doctor :   How was the abortion done?
User :   what is serum beta hcg levels?
Doctor :   Blood test
User :   um i had to go into theatre.
User :   im not sure what you would call that type of abortion
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Surgical evacuation
User :   yes thats it
Doctor :   You should not worry at this stage
Doctor :   instead seek a GP's help in checking the Uterus
Doctor :   for left overs
User :   ok i will make sure i do so, and also, is ther anything i can do to control the pains?
Doctor :   You can take Over the counter pain killer and put hot packs on the abdome n
Doctor :   These are safe and worth trying
User :   thankyou. at the moment i am taking panadiene extra and panadiene forte when the pain is really ed, is that ok?
Doctor :   That is fine
User :   awsome. thanyou for your help. also could you tell me alittle about the medical abortion, using the two pills. i would be interested to know about them.
User :   and also whether or not they are lless effective than the surgucal evacuation?
Doctor :   The pill and surgical evacuation , differs by time of wanting the abortion
Doctor :   Both are equally effective within their periods
User :   so when can you take the pill?
User :   i mean up untill when?
Doctor :   usually 7 weeks
User :   oh,
User :   is it more painful?
