The physical side effects after an abortion will vary from woman to woman. There are both side effects to expect as well as risks that you need to know exist. It is important to talk with a health professional as well as the doctor who will perform your abortion about possible side effects. Your period should return about 4 – 6 weeks after the abortion and you can get pregnant again soon after the abortion. If your doctor has prescribed antibiotics, it is important to take them as directed as this will help prevent infection.




Anticipated side effects following an abortion:

The following is a list of side effects that are frequently experienced following an abortion. It is possible that you may experience these side effects for up to 2 to 4 weeks following the procedure.

* Abdominal pain and cramping
* Nausea
* Vomiting
* Diarrhea
* Spotting and Bleeding

Potential more serious complications following an abortion.

Although serious complications only occur in less than 1 out of 100 first trimester abortions and approximately 1 out of every 50 late term abortions; it is important to know the possible risks:

* Heavy or persistent bleeding
* Infection or sepsis
* Damage to the cervix
* Scarring of the uterine lining
* Perforation of the uterus
* Damage to other organs
* Death

It is important to understand that these risks are rare and some are even present with child birth. What matters is that you are aware that they exist as you make an educated decision about your pregnancy.
