Hi, welcome to HCM I am Dr Das
First of all, bleeding for other18 days after taking drugs for abortion is a definite indication for abortion D&C.
Now, if the retained product is not taken out immediately , it will get infected and will cause serious infection alonwith these there is increased chance of heavy bleeding .
So, it is better to go foR D&C.
