Question: Hi doctor, I had unprotected sex one month back on 21st oct, it resulted into vaginal pain, so i took pain killers and antibiotics simultaneously to avoid urinary infection. then i dint get my periods normal after that, so i had taken an unwanted pill after the 25th day of intercourse which resulted in a period the next day of taking tablet. I suspect i got pregnant and it resulted into abortion too. But i am having menstrual cramps high this time. and having heavy bleeding too.Can i take meftalspas for it or can you please suggest some other tablets?

Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

Kindly clarify few points.

How did you confirm your pregnancy? did you do any urine test?

When was your last menses date? was it on time or delayed?

You say you took unwanted, is it the unwanted 72 pill?

Kindly revert back with answers.

I had my last period on 11th oct.

i could think i was pregnant as i dint get my period on regular date which comes in 28days circle usually,

My husband though i got pregnant and as we dont have plans for kids now itself he got an unwanted(mifepristone) which is meant for abortion i guess.

and after having the tablet i got my periods the next day itself and i could see some lumps in the bleeding. So i imagined myself those are parts of embryo that were growing.

I thought it all as simple activity but now its making me scary as the abdominal pain is civiour from the past two days and i am feeling tired and body pains so i even had to take off few days from work.

I want to know how many days this state will continue and is there any remedy if anything we did wrong till now.

If i was not really pregnant what its effect is going to be? and if had got pregnant could it make the abortion complete?

Hello there.

Thanks for the reply.

Just missing periods does not indicate that you are pregnant.
You should have done a pregnancy test before taking any abortion medication.

Now the best is you get an ultrasound done to rule out the possibility of incomplete abortion. This is because you have had bleeding and now again you started bleeding heavy with cramps.

Mifepristone alone is generally not effective for an abortion.

Also proper dose and method of taking abortion pills is a must to ensure complete abortion.

The other possibility can be that you were not pregnant and the reason for bleeding to occur twice was due to mifepristone use.

Kindly consult a gynecologist for an XXXXXXX examination and ultrasound. Do not delay.

Do not go for any further self medication.

Take care.

My daughter had an abortion seven weeks ago and is still bleeding and clotting. She has been to her gynocologist with these issues but still is having the problem. She had an ultrasound and blood work done to see if she was still pregnant or had pregnancy tissue left in her uterus. The doctornsaid she is fine and the bleeding will stop. Some times it stops but when least expected she will bleeds through her clothes profusely. Her tampon comes out and so does large clots with bright red blood. It is not her period! She is seeing her doctor tomorrow for more answers to this issue. Could there have been damage to her uterus during the abortion? I think her doctor wants to do an abalation? /D&C? Do you think this is the answer or do you have any other recommendations. She can t live a normal life at the moment because of this excessive and unpredictable bleeding. Thank you for your help.
