First Period After Surgical Abortion
I'm experiencing my first period after having a surgical abortion a month ago. It is very heavy, and i have never been like that before. Is this norma?
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more
I am bleeding through 1 to 2 tampons+pads every hour with extreme pain and clots. It's my first period 6weeks after a surgical abortion. Is this normal?
ABNORMAL: You should never be soaking more than a pad/tampon per hour; given the pain that you're in you have a worrisome presentation for someone who's had an incomplete abortion/retained products/placenta. I would go to your local ED/GYN urgently to get a US and see if there's not anything else worrisome in your uterus. You may need another procedure or just observation. Good luck! ...Read more
Abortion and menses: After a surgical abortion — a D and E — your period should return to normal — but it may take up to 3 months — as the uterus heals from the procedure and your body recovers from the pregnancy. Please don't assume — no period means no chance of pregnancy though — get on or use a reliable method of contraception. ...Read more

I'm 27, female I'm getting a surgical abortion tomorrow. My last period was beginning of Jan. What should I expect during and after surgical abortion?
Dilation & Curettage: You will have an IV (needle) put in your arm or hand. Your doctor will give you fluids and medicines through the IV. Some of these medicines will make you feel relaxed, sleepy, or numb during the procedure. After a D and C, your doctor or nurse will watch you for a few hours to make sure you don't have any problems. Most women get their monthly period within 4 to 6 weeks after a D and C. ...Read more
Had a surgical abortion 11 weeks ago from doctors advice. 2nd period soaking through tampax and pads every couple of hours is it normal?
Unknown: Abortion clinics are not held to the same standards as other medical/surgical facilities. The abortion procedure is often performed in a substandard manner. You need to be examined by a residency trained OB/GYN to see if you need further care. You may need some post abortion counseling. Care Confidential is a UK based pregnancy & post-abortion support agency. Best wishes to you Christine. ...Read more
I had a surgical abortion since last month and now I'm on my period again but it's heavier and longer than my normal ones... Is this normal?
It's possible: There may have been a small amount of tissue left in the uterus from the abortion. This would cause the period to be heavier, but should go back to normal after this first period. If there continues to be irregular bleeding you might need an ultrasound or another d;c to see if there is tissue that was left. This is uncommon, but it does happen even with the procedure being done correctly. ...Read more
