Brief Answer: Symptomatic treatment if no other symptoms. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX Usually bleeding is minimal after 15 days of abortion. The causes for heavy bleeding even after 15 days could be due to retained products of conception (which has already been ruled out by scan) or could be due to infection. If there is infection usual presentation will be fever or foul smelling vaginal discharge or pain lower abdomen. If you are not having any of these symptoms then I feel you can wait for one or two days for the bleeding to stop. I usually give Tranexamic acid + Mefenamic acid drug combination for my patients with similar complaints. Kindly visit your doctor for examination and for any symptomatic treatment. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!
