Hi about a month ago I had a medical abortion. I immediately started taking the pill after this. The month had since finished and was expecting my period, but nothing happened. Has something gone wrong or am I paranoid or is it something else? Thanks

I have symptoms of lower back pain, abdominal pain, tender breasts, random vomiting but light, diarrhea and sever to light cramping in waves I am on the nexapolon birth control implant and have been for over a year now, the emergency room told me I was not pregnant, I have only had lot sexual activity but not sex. My symptoms or the pain started on the 19th of February, I went to emergency room in the United Kingdom in the 27th of March and was told I possibly have an ovarian cyst but they were skimpy with details and didn't give me discharge papers, they don't have the best medical care there or training. On March 8th I went to the NHS clinic, which is the national health insurance clinic in my hometown, which is a council estate and a poorer area. The doctor there said I had blood in my urine after a urine tests, a lot of blood even though my urine looks fine. They gave me Bactrim 200mgs twice a day for 3 days, which is not a full treatment course to my knowledge. They told me I had a water infection which I'm pretty sure means a UTI, they also told me it might be a kidney infection which I thought would be related to a UTI that was left to develop. My period started today, a 19 day difference between the first onset of symptoms. they had given me a sedative at the hospital and something for pain but I did not take any medications home to my knowledge. I was alone when I went and sort of out of it. I went to the hospital by ambulance. Im scared and don't know what to tell my BF who is in the USA running his company. He was supposed to relocate her shortly and Buy a home. He is 15 years older than me. Btw I am 22 year old female with a light history of UTIs. I started birth control at 13 to help with my heavy and painful periods. I was not sexually active till i was 18 and did not have sex till I was 19. I have fooled around but not had sex recently to my knowledge, I know it is still possible to get pregnant from fooling around and a few times I was very drunk and with a trusted partner who is not my BF and can't remember the night well but he is a trusted partner..my BF does not know about him. A few quick questions to add on, is it possible for me to have PMS for that long? 19 days? I started my period about 36 hours after my first does of the trimethoprim 200mg (Bactrim 200mg). Could I have had a medical abortion or agreed to one in the hospital and been giving the abortion pill? If so I did not ask my gp or is was not mentioned when I had my appt. (in the UK the abortion laws are very loose and wild, the doctors are not as well trained in some cases as they should be on certain subjects...no offense if you're from the uk haha) is it sill possible for me have had a medical abortion and the start my period 11 days after it? And a day and a half after taking my first Bactrim 200mg? Is there a way for me to get my medical records without actually going into the doctors office and waiting for hours to see the Test results myself? Does the nexapolon implant become affected by the Bactrim? Or did I just start my period? And TBH I, not even sure if the ovarian cysts was actually what the doctor told me. I talked to my BF immediately afterwards and he told me it sounded like an ovarian cyst or at least he msgd me that it could be, after I left to see if his diagnosis matched the doctors as a fun thing (he has a large amount of medical training, first as a special forces medic and has worked clinics all over the world. I think his training is actually equivalent to a physicians assistant or even higher and he was thinking about continuing his education and getting a bachelors of medicine here in the uk because it would only take him two more years of school. He has not seen the test results and was only going off of what I told him, my symptoms and what he knows of my medical history, which wasn't much and was hazy, so if after this he marries me at least I'm marrying a doctor), I also may have autism, but hi functioning, I was never officially diagnosed but my mother and BF thinks so too, I have had mood swings recently but I have some emotional problems and problems expressing myself, as a teenager I had a form of aneroxia. I didn't know I did till later on in life, i was obsessed with main ting a weight because the schools told me it was healthy weight, I barely ate, I worked out and walked constsntly, when I figured out what it was I stopped it and now eat healthy and have a healthy weight of about 160lbs. I'm also 5ft 3in. Last year and since a teenager I've thought I may have a light form of borderline personality disease, I've never been diagnosed with it and I am starting s counselor next month at my bfs urging. Can you help me at all with my questions and sorry they are so many. This is a very confusing time for me full of sickness. I only have my mother who is also Ill. Thank you.

Recent questions on  Medical abortion

doctor1 MD

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
