  18. Hi, I’m Esther. I had a medical abortion on the 10th October, 2018 I was 10weeks pregnant. I bled heavily for 2 days after which the bleeding and cramps stopped. 3 weeks later, the heavy bleeding and cramps suddenly started after which I passed out something I believe to be a foetus. And my tommy bloated up just within a night. My beasts are swollen too. I’m really worried.

    1. Hello there Esther, I would advise that you see your doctor, just to ensure that everything is well.

  19. 2 November 2018 I had a medical abortion. I passed what I believed was everything on that same night… 3 days later I am still bleeding. Its nots spotting, its still really gloopy stringy blood with clots in it. Its not major amounts buts its every time I use the loo.
    My stomach is also still rather large and have been quite constipated.

    Is this all normal and should I expect that amount of blood ?
