  8. I had an abortion over a Month now and two days ago my first cycle started, I have a severe pain, heavy flow and lots of clot, pls is it normal?

  9. Hi there. Thank you for this article. I had a D&C due to a chromosomal abnormality detected early in my pregnancy. I was 14w1d when I ended my pregnancy. I had the procedure 4/30. Got my cycle back June 8th. I had one normal cycle with my period 27 days on July 5th. Then my following cycle was 31 days with my cycle starting August 6th. This is an extremely emotional time as I desperately want a healthy baby but it’s hard to try with my cycles all over. Approximately how long until I can anticipate my cycles being the old 28 day regular ones I had prepregnancy?

    1. Hello Lauri, you should be able to impregnate right after, however I advise that you give yourself at least 2 months break and give time for everything to normalize. Also, in the meantime I advise that you take some prenatal vitamins to get yourself ready and healthy to conceive and carry a healthy baby. All the best.

  15. Hi,I had a medical abortion on 7 August,the bleeding ended on 24th of the same month.on the 11th of September I had spotting and the next day no period but I noticed stains on tissue papers when I used to check my self.pls I’m very worried,is this normal or should I see a doctor.

  16. I had abortion on 25th September by medication.. I had haevy bleeding which tapered of gradually in a week.. Its high time now to get my period.. I just have dark brown spotting since 2 days.. Will i get my period or something to worry about?

  17. I had a medical abortion on June 23rd and bled for about 2 weeks. My period returned August 7th and lasted for 6 days. It was relatively heavy for my normal period. I then got my period again September 3rd and it lasted for 4 days and was normal The last period I got was September 29th and lasted for 5 days. It was not red however, but it was brown. Kind of like the end of the abortion bleeding was. I read that this can be “old blood”. But my entire period was this brown color. Now this should be my 4th period since my abortion. I got the same brown “blood” for lack of a better word for 1.5 days and then nothing. No active bleeding or anything. I had some cramps in my lower back and was bloated for those same 2 days and then everything just went away. Does this sound normal for this far after my abortion? I am absolutely terrified at this point as I have struggled with depression and horrific anxiety since it.

    1. Hello there Rachel, many changes take place during and after abortion. Your body might take a while to be regulated back to normalcy.

    1. Hello Sannika, this will happen as your period might take a while to be regulated back to what it normally was before you did the abortion.
