Question about menstruation after an abortion.
posted by anonymous to health & fitness (7 answers total)
I had an abortion a few months ago and, when I restarted my period, my period was/is very different than it was before. I now have these big blobs of blood, which never happened before when I had my periods before the abortion. The first time I had my period, I freaked out and called the nurse practitioner all panicked and she said that my period would be different now because I had been pregnant. I don't understand why, though and I stupidly didn't ask. I've been googling endlessly and only come up with forums where someone asks a similar question and is berated for having had an abortion in the first place.
So, why is my period so different now than it used to be? Is it normal? Will it stop being blobs and return to what it used to be like?
