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

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. If you took your antibiotics, didn't have any significant pain, prolonged bleeding or fever and a urine pregnancy test is negative after 2-3 weeks, you may be ok to skip your follow-up. But make sure you're using birth control if you don't want to be pregnant. ...Read more

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

How much does an abortion cost? Looking for cost inclusive of all required check ups, ultrasounds and all other necessary factors

My: My best advice for you is to find a clinic in your area that performs abortions. Call and inquire about cost. They should be able to give you a price range. I believe the fee is based on how many weeks pregnant the patient is; for example the price someone further along in their pregnancy will be greater than someone in the early weeks of their pregnancy. Also each state has laws as far as when it is legal to perform an abortion. Make sure you and/or the person in question is well informed. ...Read more

Good afternoon, I had an abortion done it will be 5 weeks tomorrow. I bleed very little after the procedure and went through a full cycle of my birth?

Good afternoon, I had an abortion done it will be 5 weeks tomorrow. I bleed very little after the procedure and went through a full cycle of my birth?

I'm not sure what: Your question is. Your description of bleeding very little after the abortion can certainly happen. It doesn't have any real significance, either good or bad. It's nothing to worry about. Most providers suggest beginning oral contraceptives/BC pills (if that is your chosen future method of contraception) the Sunday after the abortion. So all seems ok. Write back if you have further concerns:) ...Read more
