Question
In continuation of my first question.if it helps I was 6 weeks pregnant when I
had the abortion. I did not go back for a check up. Do you know what could be wrong? I didn't even barely
Bleed after either. Just right after when I went to the washroom. And I passed one
Bloodclot the size of a nickel. Other then that, no bleedong since.
These cramps have lasted almost 24 hours now. Non stop.

Answer
Hello, melissa,

Thank you for the additional information. It still sounds to me like your abortion was probably not successful, but you'll have to go to the doctor to know for sure. I sure wouldn't have gone back for a checkup, either. But now, you will need information only the doctor can provide. If the baby somehow survived, it may also be important for him to give you some treatment. My guess is that it is simply an incomplete abortion, but only a doctor can tell you that for sure.

Expertise

I can help women with the consideration of their decision, and with resources, and I can share my own experiences as the mother of seven and grandmother of eleven. My approach is to show love and concern, and help women work through the issues, emotional, spiritual, practical. I also help women deal with boyfriend and family issues. I am not a doctor, but I have done extensive medical research, so I may be able to help with information. I am female. When you write, if you are or were pregnant, please tell me how far along you were or are, and if you have had an abortion, please tell me what kind. Thank you.

Experience

I have been working with women who are considering abortion for several years. I also work with women who have had abortions. Our family has also experienced adoption, so I can talk about that as well.

Education/Credentials
I am mostly self-taught. I also studied midwifery for awhile. I have spent years doing research on this topic. In fact, I have been doing research and working in this area since the early 1970's. I have been helping women online for a few years, under the guidance of a woman who was formally training in counseling.
