I had an abortion 2 weeks ago the first week was fine now I have migraines light sensitivity, nausea and diarrhea. I'm so scared of infection?

It's very unlikey: If you had your procedure done by Health Care Professional (s) that you have an infection. It may very well be that you are a bit upset about the abortion itself!!! It's time to have a face to face talk with either your Primary Care Professional (if you have a good relationship with him/her or with a Licensed Counselor. Ask your PCP for a suggestion.... and TRY to RELAX!
Hope this helps

Just had pill abortion then iuc 5year implanted, been a week healed and now I am peeing brown, bleeding vaginally black and diarrhea? What should I do

Retained Products: The only thing I cannot explain here is the dark urination, which if you're sure is not mixed with vaginal discharge, you should seek care for possible urinary infection or kidney injury. The dark vaginal discharge could be remnants from your procedure which your uterus is now expelling. Not dangerous unless with fevers, pain, bleeding more than a pad/hr, or foul smelling discharge. ...Read more

Cdiff 4yrs ago - now have LUQ & soft/loose stools. CDIFF TOXIN/GDH W/REFL TO PCR Result: Toxigenic C. difficile detected New infection or colonized?

Monitor: Once you have C. diff there is a reasonable chance you can be colonized. The criteria for infection include watery stools in excess of 3-4 times daily. The pain or discomfort is usually in the lower abdomen. Soft stools with a relatively low daily frequency usually are not indicative of C. diff. In summary, the presence of C. diff. In your stool in itself is not indicative of infection ...Read more

I had an abortion, am I more susceptible to streptococcal infections in future pregnancies?

Abortions can be associated with very severe infections, so for women who chose this option, it is best to work with a physician who has experience. Also, if a woman thinks that she had a spontaneous abortion or doesn't feel the baby move, she should contact her doctor right away. ...Read more

I had an abortion aspiration a little over a week ago and now I have what feels like a yeast infection. I have taken two diflucan (fluconazole) and no results?

I had an abortion aspiration a little over a week ago and now I have what feels like a yeast infection. I have taken two diflucan (fluconazole) and no results?

Not yeast: Most women think that any vaginal discharge is a yeast infection, but this is absolutely not true. If the aspiration was successful, hormone levels begin to drop and the uterine lining begins to destabilize (like when you begin to have menstrual bleeding) and shed. These hormonal changes also change the ph and bacterial composition of the vagina causing discharge. Usually not yeast. ...Read more
