Change in bleeding since medical abortion and surgery.
Patient : Hi, just over two weeks ago I had a medical abortion at 14 weeks. I had to have surgery the following afternoon to remove retained products. I was sent home with anti biotics and pain killers and at first i was fine until my bleeding started to change. It was incredibly light to start then I didn't bleed for 2 days until I started again heavily and passed a few small clots, I would describe this as "new blood" as it was very red in colour. My bleeding now goes light and heavier again and I have a burning red rash around my vagina, I presumed this to be a yeast infection and have been using Vagisil creme but it hasn't made a difference, im also feeling very tired and weak as well as having strong abdominal and hip pain. I'm really worried I may have an infection.
