OBGYN 's  Response
Post abortal abnormal bleeding is seen in less than 1 % of patients.
It is normal to experience some vaginal bleeding for approximately two weeks after an abortion.

You may experience light bleeding for the first few days and for the next several days, it is common to have heavier bleeding and cramping.

You need to take certain precautions.
This includes taking prescribed antibiotics, not engaging in exercise for two weeks, not lifting anything heavier than 5kg and not engaging in vaginal sexual activities for two weeks.

Your bleeding should stop in another weeks time. Eat healthy and good luck on your next pregnancy.
