Bleeding after abortion

I had an abortion exactly 4 weeks ago now, for my own reasons, unplanned pregnancy and me nor my partner are financially secure. I am still bleeding, not a great deal but enough to still have a to wear a sanitary towel. I think the nurse said the bleeding should last for about 3 or 4 weeks. How long do you think I will bleed for after? I am getting a bit fed up of it now, having to wear a towel everyday for the past 4 weeks. Sometimes I don’t bleed for a number of hours and I think it may have finally stopped, but then I start again.

Re: Bleeding after abortion

All women are different. Some bleed a few days..some just depends. If its been 4 weeks already Im sure the worst is behind you and things will be back to normal soon..It's possible you bled for awhile and then started your period..which is making it seem longer..!

Re: Bleeding after abortion

After my abortion i didnt bleed for that long, a week at most and then like 2 weeks later i started bleeding again for another week. A month later, i think i got what is my period and its been lasting for 2 weeks on and off, it stops for hours like yours but then starts again.
