If that's the case, you should try a 14 day course of omeprazole OTC. ...Read more

I had medical abortion last week. My stomach is very bloated and breasts hurt me and feel them more bigger and heavier than the usual. Is that normal.? Also back pain and cramps.

I recommend a timely follow up visit with the doctor after an abortion or miscarriage, especially since you're experiencing side effects that may indicate a complication. Dr. Anne ...Read more
