I had an abortion (medical abortion) about 2 months ago and I have not stopped bleeding. What is the cause for it? How can I stop the bleeding?
Evaluation: If you are bleeding continuously since your abortion you should see your obgyn asap since it possible that you have retained "product of conception" : remaining “tissue” of the pregnancy in the uterus.

No, it does not: Abortion is a very debated topic, and rightfully so, with valid arguments from both sides. Which view of it you take should be based on facts and conscience, not unfounded fear. I would like to believe that most of us who gravitate towards the pro-life camp would support our views with valid points and not falsehoods or demonizing but sadly, it is not often true (in both sides). Best to you. ...Read more
Not likely: If you have chlamydia or gonorrhea undiagnosed recently then it might be a coincidence. endometritis (an infection of the lining of the uterus) is more common.

Get a GYN consult regarding this as PID is often times not the correct diagnosis ...Read more
