Bleeding caused after abortion - Online Doctor Chats
Doctor : Hi
User : hi.
Doctor : How can I help you?
User : ill just copy and paste my query. here: I had a surgical abortion 6 days ago at approximately 7 weeks into pregnancy. while being pregnant I vomited constantly, all hours of the day, almost the entire time. I also had trouble sleeping, eating, was very emotional, and felt generally unwell. I understand this is all fairly normal in early pregnancy, but almost a week after abortion, none of my symptoms have been relieved or even lessened. I did not bleed at all for the first 5 days, but yesterday started bleeding moderately, light in color and with no clots but it has been constant for about 24 hours now. I am wondering if this is normal and how long I should expect the symptoms of pregnancy and bleeding to continue.
