I m really very stress and frustrated becuz of this.

ANSWER: Hello, Priya,

I need to know more before I can tell you anything. When was your last menstrual period? Are you asking whether you should be bleeding, or are you concerned because you bled too much, or because they didn't warn you that you would bleed? Please let me know. Thank you.

Hello, Priya,

You're welcome. I am not sure how much help I can be. Pills only work well during a very narrow period of time. You're not really in the middle of that time. You are asking me questions about your body. The only person who can really answer those questions is a doctor who can examine and test you. Nobody will be able to tell you for sure what is happening with your body, over the internet.

The doctor who gave you the pills was highly negligent. Abortion is bad medicine. A lot of women are bleeding to death after taking pills, in India. Telling you that you would bleed for 2 weeks was really very misleading. A woman can experience no bleeding at all, or bleeding off and on for many weeks. How any doctor would be able to tell you that you would bleed for two weeks would be a real mystery. If she knows anything at all, she knows that this simply isn't accurate. Why would she mislead you? In any case, only bleeding for a week means that in all probability, you won't experience the weakness and debility that often accompanies these abortions.

I really think you need to find another doctor. Try to find someone who is familiar with complications from abortion, and knows how to treat complications. Failing to complete an abortion is a possible complication. Cramps and low back pain COULD indicate you are undergoing the labor necessary for the abortion to be complete, but if there is no bleeding, it is obviously not doing what it is supposed to do.

I recommend you contact an organization in Delhi that can provide a referral to a good doctor.

This organization covers  the States of Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, Jammu-Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, New Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and Uttaranchal.

Like I said, you really need for a doctor to examine and test you.

I hope this helps. Please let me know what you find out. Take care.

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.


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.

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.
