I would say you resumed your sexual activity rather too early after an abortion. It was barely 10 days after abortion when the tissues are yet in the regenerating stage. The chances of infection with external intervention are raised at this stage.
The bleeding with pain you are having could be due to one or more of the following:
1. Infection: This seems to be the most likely probability as you resumed your sexual activity too early. Incomplete abortion
may also lead to infection. You may have fever with infection. You will need antibiotics to treat this condition.
2. Incomplete abortion: If some products of conception are left inside the uterine cavity
, it may start bleeding. The uterus will start contracting vigorously to expel them out. Due to uterine contractions, there will be pain in abdomen. Please get ultrasonography
done for confirmation. If the products are revealed inside the uterine cavity, you may have to undergo surgical intervention to remove them under antibiotics umbrella. Remaining product by this time might have got infected.
3. Withdrawal bleeding: You had taken contraceptive
pill on 19th Aug. A couple of days later, withdrawal bleeding is expected. However, it is not very heavy and stops within a couple of days. For this no management is needed.
4. Choriocarcinoma: This is a cancer of chorionic tissue. It bleeds alarmingly heavy. This can be diagnosed by pregnancy
test on urine. If even after 15 days of abortion it is positive, the chances of this cancer are high. The ideal way is to go for quantitative estimation of Beta hCG
on the serum. We find very high values of Beta hCG in choriocarcinoma. This cancer can completely be cured by medicines like Methotrexate
Please report to your Obstetrician & Gynaecologist ASAP for correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment well in time.
I hope you got the message.
