Abortion/Post abortion


I had an abortion on October 27th I am still bleeding in and off some days heavier some days not so heavy. Me and my fiancÚ were fooling around and he was playing with my breasts and sucked on it and he thought something came out I isnt believe him I did it to myself and there was a discharge, could this mean I am still pregnant or it this normal?

It has just been 3 weeks since your abortion.  The milk production is normal.  You should not have any manipulation of the breast to allow the breast to return to normal.  The bleeding can be normal.  You should follow up with your doctor if the bleeding continues.  These symptoms are normal.
