This first period after a medical abortion may be heavier or it may have more clots than normal. Usually a follow up ultrasound may be required to rule out any retained products of conception to be on safe side.

You need to visit your doctor in case

  • Passing large clots with painful cramping
  • Passing tissue with painful cramping
  • Foul smelling discharge
  • Fever over 100.1 F
  • Bleeding for more than 1 week.

I hope this helps
