“I HAD A MEDICATION ABORTION 3-5 WEEKS AGO AND I AM STILL BLEEDING”

On average, people bleed for 9-14 days following a medication abortion. But some individuals can bleed or pass clots for as long as 4 weeks(which is normal). After the first few days of heavy bleeding some people will have little or no bleeding, some will have bleeding that stops and starts, and others will have bleeding simillar to a menstrual period for several weeks.

In most cases the menses following a medication abortion will be much heavier than one’s normal menses which is okay.

In the absence of other symptoms, the bleeding is no threat and its much safe to wait for it to stop on its own.
