Hello. Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
Following an abortion
, whether by medication or surgery, it can take several cycles for your normal menstrual pattern to resume. Therefore, the reddish-brown discharge you noticed could be a sign that your body is trying to get back to normal.
However, you didn't mention what type of protection you were using to prevent another pregnancy
. Therefore, just to be on the safe side I suggest you take a pregnancy test. If it's negative -- as I presume it will be -- and if you're not having any other symptoms (pelvic pain
, vaginal discharge
, breast tenderness, nausea
, fever, chills, etc.), it's reasonable to wait another cycle or two to see if your periods resume. If you are having worrisome symptoms, see your doctor.
I hope that helps!
