What are the normal symptoms after an abortion?

Answer

According to WebMD, the normal symptoms that most women experience after they have had abortions include irregular bleeding for as much as 3 weeks after the procedure, cramping for 2 to 6 weeks and emotional issues for up to 3 weeks. Typically the surgery center will send home an instruction sheet for the individual to follow and any warning signs to look for after the procedure has been done.

Only around 1 in every 100 cases experiences any serious complications. These problems may include severe pain, a fever of more than 100.4 that lasts for more than 4 hours, pain or redness in the genitals and heavy bleeding for more than 12 days. Any abnormal symptoms should be immediately reported to a physician.
