i had an abortion over a month ago and im still bleeding is this normal

Hi Bewing, By bleeding I

Hi Bewing,

By bleeding I assume you mean similar to your period? Some woman may spot (little drops of brown or pink blood in your underwear or when you wipe.) This is normal.

However, if you are bleeding (not spotting) then no that is not normal and indicates an incomplete abortion and you need to make an appointment with your doctor. The bleeding will not just stop on its own and it puts you at a higher risk for an infection.

Please call your doctor or visit a clinic such as Planned Parenthood.

Best of Luck,
