abortion pill, positive pregnancy test

A: Dear Smriti - it is completely normal to have a positive pregnancy test for weeks after an abortion.  For the abortion pill, it can stay positive for a month.  As long as a doctor confirmed that the abortion pill worked, and you did not have sex, there is nothing to be concerned about. I hope this is helpful, Doctor Joan EarlyabortionOptions.com New York City...

Getting pregnant after the abortion pill

A: Dear Rebecca, The best way to know if the abortion pill worked is either: you had pregnancy symptoms before and now you don"t; you now have a negative pregnancy test; you have a follow up visit with the doctor who gave you the pill and they either check an ultrasound or a blood test.   It is possible to get pregnant right away after an abortion, but sometimes it can take months.  As long as the first pregnancy was terminated the doctor will not mistake the new pregnancy for the original pregnancy.  If you were to get pregnant right away, you would be four weeks earlier than the previous pregnancy, and the doctor can tell the difference by exam or by ultrasound.   I...

irregular bleeding three months after abortion pill

A: Dear Andrea, Unfortunately the bleeding you are describing is common after the abortion pill.  It is common to have intermittent, irregular bleeding, sometimes with clots.  There is more information on this at: http://www.earlyabortionoptions.com/abortion-aftercare.html The only treatment for irregular bleeding after the abortion pill that continues for months is to have a procedure. A procedure (surgical abortion or Aspiration Procedure) is usually effective immediately. In some sense it is up to you if you want to get the procedure. There are no long term consequences to the bleeding as long as you...

delayed period after abortion, bleeding, clots, abortion pill

A: Dear Marissa, I am sorry you had such a difficult experience with the abortion pill.  Unfortunately, the kind of bleeding you had is common.  The ball of tissue you passed was a clot that got stuck in your cervix, and then hardened, and blocked the passage of normal blood and tissue.  That"s why you had the extreme amount of bleeding, clots and cramping that you experienced.  Once it passed, your uterus was able to complete the process.   As far as your late period, the best thing would be to take a pregnancy test, and see if it comes out positive.  If it"s negative, there is nothing to worry about.  Sometimes your period can be irregular or delayed for months after an

pregnancy after abortion pill, medical abortion

A: Dear Resh, It is possible, but unlikely that you got pregnant right after the abortion.  The only way to know will be to check a pregnancy test in a few weeks.  If you check one now, it will probably be positive from your original pregnancy.  In a few weeks the test should be more accurate.  In the unlikely event that you are pregnant a second time, there are no medical issues with either ending the pregnancy again, or in continuing the pregnancy.  The medications from the abortion pill are completely out of your system within days, and would not affect a pregnancy conceived a month later.   I hope this is helpful, Doctor Joan EarlyabortionOptions.com New...

abortion pill, what to expect, bleeding

A: Dear Melanie, Thank you for your question about what to expect with the abortion pill.  Generally there should be no issue with your leaving for Disneyland 5 days after taking the abortion pill.  I would recommend that you take the second medication, misoprostol, 24 hours later. Cramping is usually limited to several hours after you take the second medication. By the next day, the cramping should be finished. Since you are so early at 6 or 7 weeks, the bleeding should not be heavy.  Sometimes there is heavier bleeding for the first hours after the misoprostol, but it should be more like a heavy period by the next day.  You will be able to wear tampons by the time you...

abortion pill strong abdominal pain. eptopic pregnancy?

A: Hi, kay, That was the first thought that crossed my mind: ectopic pregnancy. Obviously, you will have to attend to it if it is. You probably have a couple of days. If the pain stops, that is when there is an emergency when you need to rush to the hospital. So if you can go to a clinic at this point (right away), that may be a good way to go. Don"t go back to whoever gave you the pills. They are either ignorant, or they committed malpractice by giving you Cytotec, because the manufacturer specifically says it should never be used by pregnant women. Having an abortion to conceal pregnancy from the family is usually not a good idea, because there is so much that can go wrong. You have something else to be concerned about. That"s the...

unsuccessful abortion pill

A: Dear Kelly, Where did you get the original pill services?  This is not an uncommon thing to happen, and they should have prepared you for this possible outcome.  You should have had a routine follow up.  In any case, they should be able to help you with this.  Sometimes it is as simple as just repeating the second set of pills.  Otherwise, you can get a procedure. I know you are frightened, but this should be fairly straightforward, unless you are concerned about the medical care you would receive at the office where you got your original care.   Let me know what you think, Doctor Joan...
