I had a medical abortion about 11 days ago...had severe cramping and bled heavily for day one and two but slowed down and bled normal for 8 days..blood clots came out..is there a possibility that I'm still pregnant?

Editor's Comment

Your abortion provider would normally follow you up to check that the abortion is complete. It is possible for a medical abortion to fail and if you have concerns I would advise you to see your GP. You can also check yourself with a pregnancy test after 3 weeks when the pregnancy hormone would normally have left your system, and it would register negative. If you would like to talk to a trained practitioner further please log into the Online advisor from the website, or call the national helpline 0300 4000 999. for post abortion support.
