Periods are typically irregular after either a medical or surgical abortion. Clots are just the uterus shedding its endometrium with its many blood vessels in a large clump instead of a tiny bit at a time. It isn't concerning unless you are hemorrhaging. That is soaking a pad or tampon per hour for 6-8 hours in a row. If that ever happens, you need to go to the ER.
