Two medical abortions in 15 months

My first medical abortion was last year July 2010 with clots and cramps for about 5 days.. and my next period was a little delayed only may be around 45 days .. I had my second abortion on October 29th 2011 and I was bleeding for 3 days with cramps.... but I had no clots... it's 38 days from my abortion date (Oct 30th 2011) till now and I didn't get my next period. When should I get it?

Editor's Comment

It can sometimes be about 6 weeks before you have a period, but you should also do a repeat pregnancy test to check whether the abortion was completed. If you have had unprotected sex since your abortion then you should wait 2 weeks from that time and do a pregnancy test. It must have been difficult for you to go through 2 abortions in just over a year, and I wonder if you have asked your doctor or contraceptive clinic about long acting contraceptions that are very effective. If you would like more information, or if you need any support after your abortions please call the national helpline 0300 4000 999.
