Hi,
Welcome to healthcare magic;
If you have excessive bleeding after doing a surgical abortion[Suction evacuation] then it is not normal it suggest incomplete abortion consult your gynaecologist immediately&if you have tried medical abortion then excess bleeding is common for few days but if you soak more than 2 pads in1hour consult your gynaecologist.
Thanks
