User :   I had an abortion three months ago and after it I was on contraceptic pills, till last month when my period flew normally and after that , traces of blood for more than two weeks. I then saw my gyneacologist, who did an echography and realised there was some small stuff in my uterus and he said it was not big at all and i have to see him in 10days for another D$C to get it out completely. But I just noticed this morning, that i was bleeding and a clot of blood not so, big and not too small either came out while I had my bath. Could that be the stuff which was in me? Do I wait till I see my doctor in 10days? Or do I see him as soon as possible?
