This is normal. Abortion is complete

Hi,

Thats normal.

She has got the clots instead heavy flow.

This means the abortion is complete. Let her stay relaxed without worries.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

Brief Answer:
Wait for next periods for 2 months

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

She might bleed again in next 4 days. If abortion is complete, she may not bleed. Her periods are likely to start after about one to 2 months from now.

DOCTOR, thanks for the advice, we were been advised her next periods would be normal 4-6 weeks from abortion, again do we have to do any pregrancy check further, again we stay in UAE where this is not legal, so how do we reconfirm as abortion is completed(no tissues left etc), please help us out..thanks

Test after one month

Hi,

You can repeat pregnancy test after one month to check if the abortion is complete. There is no other way.
