    Good morning. Sorry about your friend. How was the abortion done? How old was the pregnancy? If there are still some remnants of the products of conception in her uterus, the bleeding would persist and infection will eventually set in. Please ask her to go do a pelvic scan which may confirm this. She would then need to do an evaluation in the hospital. The bleeding would then subside. If you have further questions, please let me know. Take care

    the pregnancy was just about a month and the abortion was done through the use of some tablets,

    Ok. This means that she may not have expelled all the products of conception and that is why she is still bleeding. This needs to be evacuated. But please let her do a pelvic ultrasound scan to confirm first. You can then take the result to the hospital for evaluation. Afterwards she would be given some drugs.

    Ok. There is a mother and child care center (MCC) at festac first gate. It's a general hospital. They would attend to her. It's usually a day case. There are various other private hospitals in festac though I don't know much about them.
