Hi There,

Well your ultrasound report suggests that you might have some products of the pregnancy which have been left behind in the endometrial cavity. Does the report mention anything about vascularity within the endometrial cavity.
If you are still bleeding then please repeat an ultrasonogram after 1 week. If it still shows heteroechoic content with vascularity then You will have to undergo another Dilatation and evacuation procedure to remove these products of conception.
This is important from a future pregnancy point of view as we don't want retained products of conception to be left behind in the uterus for a long time.

Hope this helps
