arbotion effects
I had a termination of pregnancy 6months ago when I was 7 weeks pregnant and it seems I'm experiencing all the effects of pregancy now. First I menstruated for a whole month after the TOP, then my periods seized until now(Nov).I am also experiencing urinary tract infections and it is extremely painful when I am releasing feaces. Plz Help me. I am not on medical aid and the public nurses around this small town are extremely inefficient.

Blom, it doesn’t sounds right from this side of the screen. Was the abortion done by a gynaecologist? Did you go for a follow-up 4-6 weeks afterwards? The fact that you have pain with defecation is also worrying. You can let me know as a new question and we’ll take it from there. The best would be to see a gynaecologist (you can go to a state hospital) and have it sorted out. Good luck.
