Hi, welcome to HCM i am Dr Das
Hi, you have some retained product. It is a common complication of medical termination of pregnancy.
Don't worry everything will be ok.
First wait for two more weeks for normal expulsion induced by the product it self. If it occurs then it should be evacuated manually by dilatation and evacuation. It is a minor surgical procedure.
