Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

If you had an abortion and are still bleeding, there might be concern about whether the entire pregnancy was removed. Also, there is a small concern that the pregnancy might not have been in the uterus. Here is what you need to talk to your doctor about:
1. You need a followup HCG (pregnancy hormone level) drawn
2. If your HCG level is not down to zero you need a D&C
3. If you do not stop bleeding, and the HCG level is zero, then you could consider a hormone, such as progesterone, to stop the bleeding

You should not take any medications without considering the above advice or talking with your doctor.

I hope that this helps and good luck!
