Has medicinal abortion May 29th, had first normal period on July 25th, but some spotting in between and since, nothing heavy, is this abnormal?

Its normal/ common: This is perfectly normal. It is very common for a small amount of blood clot or debris to be retained after medical abortion. Make sure you go back for your followup visit as this ultrasound will insure that all is fine. Please stay on a good form of birth control. If you are having difficulties with this, then consider a consult online with me. ...Read more

Every 30-40 days: ...is "regular" by most physicians' standards.

Still readjusting: As your body rebalances after pregnancy, your hormones will gradually kick in and your normal menstrual cycle will return. Even though the period on January 22 seemed normal, things are probably still adjusting. Perhaps you are also adjusting to a new contraceptive. It should normalize in a month or two. However, if discharge persists, see your doctor. Good wishes. ...Read more

See your Clinician: After an abortion, your period can be affected for several months. However, if your pain or bleeding persist, I would advise that you see your clinician, who may perform a pregnancy test, gyn exam and an ultrasound to rule out retained tissue from your pregnancy, another pregnancy or other cause. Hormonal contraception may help your sxs, while also preventing another unintended pregnancy. ...Read more
