After 3days of abortion, bleeding occurs which lasts for one week and stops, but bleeding started again when I resume exercise, when it will last?

Variable: This bleeding can last up until your next normal menses which should occur about 4-5 weeks after the abortion.

May be. ..: Is this the first series of such urinary events? If related with "rough" sex, over time, the symptoms will improve if no UTI exists. For female at 19, oftentimes, post-coital UTI has to be considered. So, if symptoms fail to improve, see urologist for history, physicals, urinalysis, and others as needed.

About 6 weeks pregnant. Spotting/bleeding for 2 weeks. Doctor says things look good though. Can I exercise or is this not advised?

Depends: It depends on what your doctor says you can do. There is really no good study that says anything you do changes anything as far as miscarriage in the first trimester. I'm talking normal, everyday things. High impact aerobics, marathons, triathlons, stuff like that who knows. I would ask your doc and see what s/he wants you to do and go from there. ...Read more

Prolonged periods: Should be treated according to cause. Presuming that homonal imbalance is a cause, and that you are not interested in birth control, using Progesterone 100 mg. Orally day 15 to 24 of cycle for 3 mo usually will take care of it. Progesterone is natural like hormone derived from plats. ...Read more
