I regretably had a medical abortion at 9 weeks & the baby is still alive. Now I want to keep this baby

I really need a reply on this quick, I regretably had a medical abortion at 9 weeks it didnt work, the baby is still alive and kicking, i now want to keep this baby i do not want to have a surgical procedure (i am now 12 weeks) that will destroy me! the gyn/abortion surgen i spoke to at the hospital for the follow up check up said it was up to me if i continue with the pregnancy chances are there will be no defects it is actually a lot lower risk to have deformities than they would have you believe and 9 weeks may have been too late, i need more opinions (drs) when i had the abortion i had no pain but 4 blood clots did come out, what was this ? does the baby need whatever it was? will i produce more? after those clots the bleeding eased off and stopped after a day or too, like i say no pain, please can one of you give me some advice please urgently? i just need more advice i feel i am bad for trying to abort this baby i am 32 . 5.4 and have had two children with easy births already

Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Relax . You can continue your pregnancy. your doctors are right. To date, there is no evidence that mifepristone has teratogenic effects on the fetus. Several case reports have associated misoprostol use with limb defects and Mobius syndrome but it is not yet proved . Moreover you took pills at 9 weeks, which was quite late to cause any defects in fetus. Get an anomaly scan done after 6 weeks to be completely sure. take care.

Hello, I m 26 and had a surgical abortion on December 5th 2013, I was 6 weeks pregnant. I had the contraceptive implant fitted at the same time. An ultrasound later that day showed some retained tissue and on the 7th I was given a half dose of the abortion pill to flush the remainder out. I had heavy bleeding and pain for a few days but it settled. However, 5 months down the line I am still having very spotty bleeding, no pain and very light but probably on average 4 days out of 7 every week. I know the implant can cause irregular bleeding but I also notice on a regular basis, tiny scraps of tissue after I pass urine, there is no blood, just a number of pieces of tissue ranging from 2-15mm long. Can you offer any advice? Thank you.

Hi Dr Jain
As we are getting quite old ( I am 36, my husband 45) when I got pregnant last time my partner and I decided against the baby and I ended up having a medical abortion middle of October. Now I regret this decision a lot and contemplate having another baby (we have one daughter age 6). My question is – when is it safe to conceive again? What is the time needed for the body to cleanse after the pill used in the womb during the medical abortion?
Thanks a lot for your help
Kind regards
MT
