How long does a uterus take to heal after abortion?

I had an abortion 2 years ago, and then about 4 months later I got pregnant again. I miscarried at about the 3rd month. Now I am on the Nuva Ring, and on February 9 i took it out so i can start my period, which only lasted till the 13th. I was supposed to put a new ring in on the 16th. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex on the 14th and 15th, i thought that the hormones would still be in my body since it wasnt time to put the new ring in. On the 19th, i all of a sudden got very light headed and felt nauseous. Since then i have been feeling a little nauseous when i eat foods and what not. My boyfriend and I have pretty much accepted that i'm most likely pregnant, even though the test i took came negative. I am supposed to take this ring out on the 16th to start my period. Today i noticed some pink discharge in my undies, and later it became bloody. I was wondering how long uteruses take to heal after an abortion? Is bloody discharge normal during pregnancies? the only time i bled with the second pregnancy was when i miscarried. The doctors told me after they vacuumed the fetus out of me that the next time i get pregnant to keep it b/c it would be hard to get pregnant again. So what are my chances that i miscarried?

If Im understanding correctly you dont even know if your pregnant right? You took a test and it said negative? I would think your probably having some issues with your birth control and I would go talk to a doctor. I have never had an abortion so I cant say I know any info on it, your best bet is to call your dr and have a check up, I wouldnt say you had a misscariage cause you dont know if your pregnant yet................Good Luck

Re: How long does a uterus take to heal after abortion?

Yeah you're right, i have not found out if i'm pregnant. It was just so wierd that i felt nauseous the past week or so. Is it possible that the nuvaring is defective or something?

Also, on a side note, my boyfriend enjoys smoking marijuana, and i do know that it lowers sperm count, but how much does it lower the chances of getting pregnant? he usually smokes everyday. But anyway, i know i have to wait till the 15th before i can take an accurate pregnancy test, but i am just so nervous to wait!

I'm a little scared that i miscarried, because i am bleeding, and i felt a little woozy today. Anyway, i want to get to the doctor but i do not have insurance and the clinic closes before i get off work. Any medical advice would be GREATLY appreciated

Don't count on your boyfriend smoking weed to lower his sperm count enough to not get pregnant. I know many people whose boyfriends are pot smokers and they got pregnant by them.

Make a late afternoon appointment with planned parenthood for a check up. Tell your employer you have a doctors appointment at 4 p.m. and ask if you can leave and make up the time.

Your health is important. Find out what is wrong. If you are not pregnant, stick to a birth control method because you are really confusing your body. Good luck and I hope you will be feeling better soon.
