Hello ma'am.

Yes ma'am, in the case of a medical abortion, the pills administered are to help with the expulsion of all products of conception. At times, these very products of concepion do not completely get expelled by the uterus. When this happens, these products result in an infection, like was in your case. This required the administration of antibiotics, but later these retained products were expelled and so you should now be on the road to complete recovery; this does happen at times ma'am.

Do not worry. Hope this helps.

Take care.
