Thank you so much Sir/Mdam,

Brief Answer:
Wait for one week

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Bleeding and slight abdominal pain can occur for up to15 days after taking medical abortion.
Breast engorgement and swelling is due to the pregnancy, which will gradually subside as the abortion is completed.
I will suggest you to wait for one week more.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Thank you so much Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX ji. your kind reply is really helpful for me but i still have some questions.
as u told me that i'll have to wait around 15 days to complete abortion so, does it mean that there is still a possibility of pregnancy? and if it like this then why am i having a abdominal pain n bleeding?
but, please tell me that what precaution should i do for avoid this abdominal pain, because i don't feel comfortable due to this problem. do i need to avoid some kind of food also? and what about my sex-life during these 15 days?
