Thanks for your query.

Following Medical Termination of Pregnancy (Abortion) bleeding will occur for a couple of days. After that, the bleeding will decrease in a couple of weeks.

In most cases, periods will occur (resume) after five to six weeks.

If heavy bleeding persists for more than 3 - 5 days, it could be because the uterus has not been emptied completely. If this is the case you should get an Gynecological examination done by a doctor.

I hope my answer has been adequate and informative. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
