What happens if you don't follow thru on a check up after an abortion?

Maybe infertility: The reasons for a check up after an abortion are to make sure that you don't have an infection and that all the pregnancy tissue is gone.

Had a pill abortion 5 weeks ago . Everything checked out ok and now passing small clots. Is this normal?

Call your doc: I'm not sure what "everything checked out ok," means, but irregular bleeding could happen for a few weeks after a termination. The doctor that treated you should be available to you for complications, and therefore you can see him/her or call and find out if any testing needs to be done. ...Read more

Abortion thorugh tablet/medicine - what need to be done if you find 3mm remain detected through sonography after two weeks from prescribed pill.?

Do blood tests: I would start with a blood pregnancy test then repeat 3 days later. This is to see to if the hormone level is going down to zero on its own. If it is dropping quickly then just watch. If it is the same or going up then the abortion medicine did not work - which happens occasionally - and you may need to have a surgical abortion or repeat the medication - see your doctor to discuss this. ...Read more
