Get it checked out: It can take 8 weeks for your periods to come back after an abortion. But having sharp pain, bloating and a brown/red discharge could indicate a problem. An ultrasound to make sure there is no retained tissue, an exam to look for an infection and an HCG level and other bloodwork should be done. There are some late complications of an abortion that can be serious so get it checked out.
