Can abortion pill traces be found in subsequent blood test reports? I took abortion pill early about within 1-2 months after I found out about my missed period, the doctor said it was still early. I finished taking abortion pills about 3-4 months ago; however, my health has decline since then because I had to try to hide it from my parents by continuing to work. I get dizzy easily from walking too much or standing for too long. My parents suspect that I had abortion. They want to take me to doctors for check-up. Would the doctor be able to find out that I had abortion pills? Also how do I take care of my body now, aside from rest, are there any type of nutrition or supplements to help me recover faster?

Thanks for posting your query.

If you wont tell the doctor yourself that you have taken an abortion kit then there is no test to find out that you have taken it, as you took the tablets 3-4 months ago and the drug gets cleared up from your body in such a long time and the hormone levels also come back to normal.

Repeated spells of dizziness and weakness most likely has resulted from the excessive blood loss that is associated with medical abortion. You need to take iron supplements regularly for at least 1-2 months along with a protein XXXXXXX diet to make up for the blood loss that has happened.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Thank you for your quick response. I didn't rest for the first month during and after taking the medical abortion pill. I was working full-time and walking around. during second and third month i came to the US to visit my boyfriend and to rest, but I got a cold, and has caught a cold and sore throat. I don't think my cold has totally gone away yet. My bf has been making me taking vita synergy's women organic vitamins along with nyquil medication. Just so you get an idea of the time-frame I got the medical abortion in July and I caught cold in late September and still have not fully recovered from cold and cough yet. What should I do? My doctor told me that I CANNOT get sick during this fragile period.

Thanks for writing again.

It seems that you are having a viral infection which is making you feel weak and tired.
These types of viral syndromes typically last from as little as 3 days up to sometimes 4 to 6 weeks.

I would advise that you support your body with good hydration, adequate sleep, a well-balanced diet and a moderate exercise regimen. Exercise is actually good for the immune system which is why I suggest it here.

In addition you can supplement your diet with some Vitamin C - 1000 mg daily and consider drinking some immune boost type of tea such as Echinacea which is readily available at most supermarkets.

Hope my answer is helpful. Write back if you have further queries.
Wishing you a trouble free speedy recovery.
