Abortion/Post abortion


Hi doctor,

I had an abortion about 2 months ago and everything went smoothly although I had a uti. My boyfriend and I finally started having sex about a month prior, protected sex minus once on my period but took morning after pill to be safe. The other day I noticed a bit of blood on my underwear, nothing too alarming but I've been having weird stomach aches like I got when I first got pregnant plus a little tired.. Was told it could be from the uti but I'm really worried my period isn't due for another 3 weeks and I'm just curious as to if the morning after poll could cause this or if my body could still think it's pregnant. Hoping I'm not because that would be devastating but if you could tell me what could possibly be causing this I'd really appreciate it.  Thank you!

Dear Sarah, I really can't tell you over the internet if you are pregnant or not. Did you find out anything yet? If you still need a pregnancy test, you can get a FREE one at a pregnancy resource center. To find a location near you, go to http://www.optionline.org or http://www.heartbeatservices.org and click on the worldwide directory. Yes, the morning after pill could have caused the problems because it is a dose of hormones. Did you have any other pregnancy symptoms. Please email me at CHERYL51@aol.com
I would love to know what has happened and help you in any further way. Also, if you suffer any emotional or psychological problems from your abortion, I offer free post abortion healing counseling.
