    Hi ! Em 19 years old. I had a surgical abortion (1 month pregnancy) yesterday morning i.e 18 july . Whenever i have my meals or sometimes even fluids it makes me feel heavy on my belly. The feeling is like of having stomach illness. Please suggest me is it normal after a surgical abortion ? I am very worried about this

    This would not be unusual after having this procedure just yesterday.

    The attached article may help. Cramping for the first two weeks isn't unusual; sometimes this can last for up to six weeks.
