Ultrasound results?: Ask your doctor if ultrasound results mentioned retained products of conception (RPOC). That is most concerning cause of continued bleeding after pregnancy termination. Is your pregnancy test still positive? Was your pregnancy intrauterine? Was ultrasound performed at an accredited facility? These are questions that need to be addressed by a gynecologist.
