In brief: Few

Common abortion complications are few, but may include bleeding, infection (rare), perforation of the uterus (even more rare), or something called post-abortion syndrome where the uterus retains blood instead of expelling it via the cervix.
This may require having a suction done again. Retained parts of the pregnancy are also very rare as almost all providers verify the termination by pathology.
