Like any medical procedure, there are physical risks that come with abortion. Some of these risks include complications such as womb damage.
The risk for this complication could be higher depending on the abortion procedure you receive. Some abortion procedures are more invasive than others.
Common signs of injury or complications after an abortion may include:
- Abdominal pain
More Signs of Complications
Abortion procedures are outpatient appointments, which means you are responsible for monitoring your health at home for complications that could arise. Signs of complications arising can be:
- Foul-smelling discharge.
- Passing of large blood clots for two or more hours.
- Vomiting for 4-6 hours.
- Pain, swelling, or redness in the genital region.
- Rapid heart rate (over 100 beats per minute).
- Hot flashes.
- Feelings of depression.
Contact emergency services immediately if you think you could be experiencing a complication after an abortion procedure.
