Abortion/cramps after abortion

Question
Hi,
So I had an abortion a week ago. Two days ago I had severe cramps but kind of normal for me. But now I'm on the second of cramps. It comes as waves. I've been taking Advil, using a heating pad and getting massage. Is there anything I can do to make it go away? I was 11 weeks pregnant when I had the abortion. When will the cramping go away?

Answer
Dear Sofia, I just got your email. I hope you are doing ok, I'm concerned about you. I never recommend abortion because of possible complications and other reasons. If you have severe cramping, please go to the emergency room. Or call your doctor not the abortion clinic. If you have any mental, psychological or spiritual problems, please let me know. Email me at CHERYL51@aol.com so we can talk in private. Write soon!
