Pain after abortion
I had an abortion about a month ago. I bled for a couple of days (which is natural) ut I kept on having sharp pains in the left side of my abdomen. I phoned the clinc and they said that I must take some medication. I did and it went away after 3 days. Now I have my period for the first time after the abortion and it is really heavy and I have severe abdominal pain. I have to walk slowly, It even hurts when I sit down. Is this normal?

You may have had some infection following the abortion. It may be best to see your gynaecologist for a check up.
