  1. I had an abortion on the 9th of March I bled up until the 23rd of March.. When my period should start?

  2. Hello I’m Mariama
    I took abortion pills on the 6th March and started bleeding that evening..I bled for about a week and removed some brown discharge…It’s been four weeks now I have not seen my period..My doctor told me my cervix was empty..I have been having stress even though there is nothing wrong with me..At times I feel like I want to see my period but due to the stress I don’t.. Instead I experience some watery white discharge..My worry is was how I felt before I found out that I was pregnant.. Could it be that I’m pregnant or am I just in a rush?

    1. Hello Mariama, relax and let nature take its course with your body. Your period can return anywhere between 3-6 weeks.

    1. Hi there Sandy, it could be either you are pregnant or that your period had just not returned yet since your abortion.

  11. hi,
    i was 6 weeks pregnant when i had my abortion on march 10th. since then i have not gotten my period, its been 7 weeks since the abortion and 13 in total. i have had sex twice unprotected. Could i still be pregnant? or got pregnant again? or could something be wrong ? i was told the pregnancy hormones stay n you for a while so to take a test is pointless cause it will come out positive

  13. I had an abortion, surgical procedure, on Tuesday, April 10. There was really no pain, cramping or bleeding the day of. But then the light spotting/bleeding has been going on. I was told to begin my BC that following Sunday. It’s the 26 & today i began bleeding very heavy & cramping horribly. I’ve gone thru 3 pads in an hour. Soaked. With Clots here & there. Idk if this is just my first menstrual cycle after or if i should keep an eye out.

  14. Hi I had an abortion by manual vacuum aspiration method in November 2017 , my period returned after 6weeks . it started being scanty to compare with the quantity before the MVA , then this month of April the period number of days reduced from 5 days to 3 days and am not using any form of pills . Please can you advice me on what could be the cause.
    Thanks

  16. Hello, I’m Alexandra
    I didn’t really take a test to be sure if I was actually pregnant but with my body changes I knew I was pregnant because I start having short breath, stomach and waist aches …..so I took misoprostol 2 varginally and 2 orally. I actually felt cramps,dizzness, and weakness but didn’t bleed till about 6hours later I didn’t actually bleed I just had blood clots for an hour and that’s all…… I don’t know if I wasn’t pregnant or I didn’t administer it well… And I haven’t seen my period
