Bacterial travel: The process of clitoral stimulation will cause two issues. The first, bacteria tend to travel from the outside to the inside of the vagina and thus to the open cervix which can cause a uterine"internal" infection Secondly, the "happy ending"(orgasm) may cause uterine contractions and increase your blood loss. Please check with you Abortion MD before going forward as pill vs.surgical abs can differ
