Hello,
Thank you for posting a query.

The bleeding indicates possibility of incomplete abortion.

Normal bleeding after taking MTP KIt may occur upto 7 to 10 days. Not more than that.

So, this bleeding should be controlled forcefully. You have to consult with a gynecologist for clinical examination and for ordering investigations like Ultrasound scan to detect any abnormalities and for further management.

The main stay treatment is Dilation and curettage. It will check the bleeding.

So, consult with a gynecologist immediately.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Regards.

Hello,

Thank you for writing back.

Look, it is basically a side effect of the MTP kit. Now, D&C as I previously told is a small operation. So, you have to go for clinical examination. There is no other option.

Yes, if you go for D&C , it will give you relief and then, you will have only monthly bleeding.

If you do not go to a gynecologist, the condition may aggravate. So, it is better to go for that.

One last thing, just for my knowledge... Is it all legal to go for these check ups and what is the cost involve in it... any clinic in delhi you can refer to...

Most important thing is... small pieces/tissues kind of things are still coming out with the blood, so does that mean doses are still working... there is no sign of tiredness, pain or severe attack....

please consider these points as well and reply

Hello,
Thank you for writing back.

The symptom you described, indicates more definitely towards incomplete abortion. So, you have to go to a gynecologist.

Though it is not legal for unmarried women, in emergency situation there will be no problem. So, consult with a gynecologist face to face. Only a gynecologist can solve this problem. It is not possible to name any particular doctor or in this website. The cost cannot be told, because it varies greatly.

Hello, I m 26 and had a surgical abortion on December 5th 2013, I was 6 weeks pregnant. I had the contraceptive implant fitted at the same time. An ultrasound later that day showed some retained tissue and on the 7th I was given a half dose of the abortion pill to flush the remainder out. I had heavy bleeding and pain for a few days but it settled. However, 5 months down the line I am still having very spotty bleeding, no pain and very light but probably on average 4 days out of 7 every week. I know the implant can cause irregular bleeding but I also notice on a regular basis, tiny scraps of tissue after I pass urine, there is no blood, just a number of pieces of tissue ranging from 2-15mm long. Can you offer any advice? Thank you.
