Are you worried about what you’re experiencing after an abortion? Some signs that may indicate you are experiencing an incomplete abortion include:
- Heavy Bleeding.
- Abdominal cramping.
- Low blood pressure.
If you suspect an incomplete abortion, it’s vital to receive help right away. Contact emergency care services immediately.
What’s An Incomplete Abortion?
An incomplete abortion happens following an abortion procedure where the pregnancy was not terminated as expected or pregnancy tissue is left behind. It must be treated immediately for the health and safety of the woman, as it may become life-threatening quickly.
Be sure to monitor your health and speak with your provider or local pregnancy center before an abortion about any complications that can occur after this procedure to help safeguard your wellness.
When to Receive Help
Don’t second guess talking with your doctor or medical provider about anything you experience after an abortion. You should always feel comfortable with your doctor and be welcome to ask questions and discuss any concerns.
Here are signs and symptoms to monitor:
- Saturating a pad every hour and passing several blood clots.
- Pelvic and/or abdominal pain.
- Cramping (can be recurring and like labor pains).
- Hypotension (low blood pressure).
- Feeling faint, dizzy, or light-headed.
- High pulse rate (over 100 beats per minute while resting).
Even if you are not experiencing one of these symptoms and believe something is wrong with your health, do not hesitate to contact the appropriate services.
