Brief Answer:
Allergic reaction to antiseptic or infection

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Some women may get allergic reaction to the antiseptic solution used during the procedure of surgical abortion.
And there is possibility of infection also.
So better to avoid over the counter drugs.
Consult gynecologist once and get examined.
By examination the exact cause for the problem can be identified and treated.
In case of allergy, antihistamines and local anti inflammatory drugs can help.
If there is infection, you may need antibiotics or antifungal drugs depending on the causative factors.
