bleeding after abortion

A: That had to be a rough expierence for you. I had a similar thing happen to me a couple of years ago. I wouldn''t worry too much since it''s only been 5 or 6 weeks. Your body has been through some tough emotional and physical strains and it can take a while for your system to "reset" after any sort of trauma. If the doctor says that you''re doing well and she/he can''t see any problems at the moment, I''d listen to them and try to not stress about it. Everyone''s body is different- but only you know best if something is really wrong- if it persists for another month- I''d go back or maybe get a second opinion. In the meantime- maybe you could take this time to do something nice for yourself- get a massage, try to relax, pamper yourself a bit- you deserve...

sex after abortion, bleeding after abortion

A: Dear Taylor, There is some debate about how soon you can have sex after an abortion, but in my opinion it is probably fine - the risks are very low.  Yes, the bleeding is probably from the sex, but that is not a bad thing - sex just stimulated your uterus to contract and expel any remaining blood.  This can happen on and off for the first few weeks and doesn"t indicate any problem.  If they told you they were certain that the abortion was successful, and you are not having any symptoms and do not need help with getting started with birth control, you do not need to follow up at the clinic. I hope this is helpful, Doctor Joan Early
