Doctors for Bleeding After Abortion: Key Facts and When to Seek Help

There are two types of abortions - surgical abortion and medical abortion. When a woman gets her abortion done through operation, it is called surgical abortion. On the other hand, when the abortion of the woman happens due to some reason, then it is called medical abortion. Let us know in detail how long bleeding occurs after abortion -

  • After any kind of abortion, bleeding of women can occur from one week to 15 days, which is completely different from periods.
  • Compared to surgical abortion, women bleed more in medical abortion. In medical abortion, along with bleeding, blood clots also occur, which last for about 4 hours. If the woman has to change more than 2 pads every 2 hours and the bleeding is not reduced, then she should immediately talk to the doctor.
  • It is also not right for the woman to have very little or no bleeding after abortion. In such a situation, there may be a possibility of infection in the uterus. Usually, after abortion, bleeding is necessary for the woman for one to two weeks. After this, bleeding turns into spotting or stops completely.
