Hello moumita;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The normal bleeding during periods can be upto 10 days anything above that is not normal even if the quantity is less.It will be better to consult a Gynaecologist for examination and opinion.There should be some underlying cause like hormonal imbalance which can lead to prolonged bleeding so better get examined and treated as bleeding can cause anaemia also.

I did an abortion on April 16, take cytotec orally and intravaginally. and I bled. Today its May 6 and I m still bleeding but not heavily, but I can see that there are still small blood in my urine. And when my husband and I have sex there is still blood. I didn t have an ultrasound but I did pregnancy test and it showed negative. Im just worried if there s still something left or the abortion is not complete. Is it ok not to have raspa and just wait for the bleeding to sttop completely? raspa here is so expensive and we can hardly afford it. Im scared that something might happen to me or Ill get poison just like the elders say when there s still something left inside the womb. Please enlighten me. your answers will really be helpful. thanks
