Heavy clotted bleeding after D and C
I saw a gynae 6 days ago for an abortion, I was 6 weeks pregnant. The following day I had a D and C done. I experienced light bleeding for 2 days and mild pain. However, since then the bleeding has gotten worse with severe blood clots. The bleeding seems and clotting seems to be getting worse. I am physically exhausted from the bleeding. I am going back to the gynae, and I wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this. What should I ask him and what are the possible reasons I could be experiencing this after a week.

There may still be remaining fragments of tissue. You are right to see your gynaecologist to check this.
