bleeding after a medical abortion?
An_194643 posted:
I had a medical abortion this week. I bleed for one day, it was a little heavy with clots but nothing major. Is this normal? Everything I've read says I may bleed heavily for days or weeks... ?? Should I contact my doctor?

Women differ in how much bleeding and cramping they experience during a medical abortion. This may be partly due to how long you are in the pregnancy. I assume you will be going back for your one week or two week post-abortion check-up? make certain you go. it is important the doctor makes sure the cervix has closed and that there is no remaining tissue there that shouldn't be there.
