I had a surgical abortion 4 days ago a fever yesterday of a 100.3 & blood cots the size of a quarter the next day with heavy bleeding what's wrong?

I had a surgical abortion 4 days ago a fever yesterday of a 100.3 & blood cots the size of a quarter the next day with heavy bleeding what's wrong?

A few ideas: I'm not so concerned that you had blood clots the size of a quarter, as these can be normal following a surgical abortion. Sometimes a low grade fever is also normal. Did your surgeon give you some Doxycycline to take following abortion? That is best. If fever is gone, you're likely not infected, but keep eye on temperature. Motrin can help as well. ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very normal on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. Just continue taking. ...Read more

Surgical abortion 1 month ago bleed light pink during intercourse & didn't ovulate what's wrong?

Probably nothing: Following any abortion some spotting and cramping can be normal; also HCG does not drop immediately to zero following abortion so normal ovulation can be delayed. If there are no other symptoms/concerns you can wait a few weeks to see how things happen, if you are worried you should contact your provider sooner. ...Read more

I had a surgical abortion two weeks and five days ago. No bleeding. Today I wiped and saw what looked like a mucus plug. What is this?

Ovulation: 2 weeks and five days would be a sufficient time interval for you to having an ovulation. Many women around this time notice an increase in what is typically a clear thin mucus. This would be my best answer, even though describe your's as a mucus plug. ...Read more

I had surgical abortion 19 days ago. Went on bc after abortion. Had brown blood for a week and stopped, now started to have red/pink light bleeding?

Sounds normal: Spotting and light bleeding on and off for a few weeks after that procedure is expected. Usually I schedule a 2 week post op check and evaluate my patients for "retained products" or infection. If you haven't had that appointment, I would recommend scheduling it. But most likely, you are just healing and getting used to the pill all at the same time. ...Read more

I had a surgical abortion 3 weeks ago. I'm still bleeding but now my bleeding has an odor for the past week. Should I be worried?

Odor after D&C: After a D&C for miscarriage it is not that rare that tissue is left behind. This could become infected. It is not normal to bleed that long and with odor, you need to get checked for infection. Your physician may decide to perform a vaginal ultrasound to rule out retained placental tissue. ...Read more

Hey. I had a surgical abortion I was bleeding for 2 weeks. But now I've started spotting how long will that last for??

Unclear: If the spotting continues to improve then I would expect for your to be done within 1 week. It is always possible that you may have had some retained clots in the uterus, prolonging the bleeding. Be in contact with your doctor and call for any signs of fever, pain or increased bleeding. ...Read more

What should I do when I get a nose bleed?

Hold pressure.: Sit down and gently squeeze the soft part of the nose between your thumb and finger (so that the nostrils are closed) for a full 10 min.

Stop a nose bleed bleeding for five minutes

Stop a nose bleed bleeding for five minutes

First: First thing to do is pinch the soft part of the nose for 10-15 minutes without looking (that could allow repeat bleeding that will flush out the clot). Pinching the upper, bony part of the nose or the upper lip does nothing. There are no blood vessels there that lead to a nose bleed. If that does not work then get a bottle of afrin (oxymetazoline) and spray both sides of the nose with 2 big sprays--this is a vasoconstrictor that shrinks the blood vessels temporarily (never use afrin more that 3 days in a row--read the instructions). You may need to blow your nose before the afrin is sprayed to clear out excess blood and clot that will block it from getting where it is needed. After the afrin, pinch the nose again for 10-15 minutes. You can repeat this again. If it is still bleeding, you may need medical attention. Once it stops, do not blow your nose. Frequent nose bleds are common, especially in the winter, but there are a number of problms that cause nose bleeds that should be evaluated. So if you keep getting the bleeds, see a physician. ...Read more

Should I still go to work if I have nose bleed?

If it stops: Nosebleeds are scary, but most stop promptly unless you have a congenital bleeding disorder or very high blood pressure. Pinch your nostrils shut firmly for 10 minutes by the clock; if the bleeding has stopped, there's no reason you can't go to work. If bleeding continues, you need to see a doctor promptly. ...Read more
