I had a medical abortion three months ago. It went wrong. I have been back to hospital four times and been given antibiotics. On the last visit, they said after a scan that it was all clear. They were wrong. I have been shivering, sweating and in pain in my arms, mainly the left one. I went to the doctor’s on Monday and he gave me yet again more antibiotics. Last night (Wednesday), a piece of the foetus came out of me. I am really worried. I have been back to doctor’s. He has told me to carry on with antibiotics. Help ??????????????
