Could be a while: Vaginal bleeding after childbirth or an abortion is different for every woman.

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 an 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

I ask my patients to be patients and give your body a couple of cycles to get back to normal. Start birth control to avoid getting pregnant before you are ready. ...Read more
