    Good evening. How many days did your period last for? Any associated lower abdominal pain or fever? It is possible you may have infection of your womb following the abortion. See a doctor to assess ASAP.

    no abdomibal pain asides the menstrual cramp during the days of the period which lasted four days and wasnt as heavy as my flow is normally. No fever either

    I would suggest you see a doctor and have an abdominopelvic USS done to be sure you were completely evacuated. What is the colour of the discharge you have? It is probably due to infection from instrumentation.

    Yes, USS means scan. Was the abortion done by a qualified personnel (Doctor)? Instrumentation means the instruments used and they way the abortion was done.
