Answer
Hello, fatima,

Generally speaking, a person should not take iron supplements. If you are anemic, it is better to eat iron-rich foods. This includes meat and green leafy vegetables. A person can become toxic on iron very easily. I am not a fan of taking lots of medications that doctors prescribe. Most of them are harmful.

It would be safe to assume you have an infection as a result of the abortion. I think infections are much more common than most people realize. It would be a miracle if there wasn't an infection. Even women who think they haven't had an infection might have a silent infection, which could lead to infertility, for example. Pain in the uterus may well indicate infection, or could simply be cramping.

If you would like me to give you specifics on any of the medications the doctor gave you, let me know. I will be happy to provide such information. As far as the symptoms are concerned, for the diarrhea and constipation, keep in mind that abortion disrupts a woman's hormones, so such symptoms should be expected. For the other symptoms, talk to your doctor. You shouldn't be blacking out. That might indicate low blood pressure. He should check and make sure you are not suffering from internal bleeding. In a surgical abortion, this can happen. It can be serious. It would be very important to find a doctor other than the one who provided the abortion. Doctors don't like to admit they harm a woman with an abortion, so they may not be as willing to look at adverse symptoms.

Let me know if you have any other questions, and please keep in touch and let me know how you are doing. In the future, please remember abortion is VERY DANGEROUS and can cause you permanent harm or even kill you, as well as cause your future children serious harm or kill them. You deserve better. Take good care of yourself.

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.
