I do understand your concern about bleeding after abortion. Vaginal bleeding is common and typically heavier than a period, but not usually excessive. Usually bleeding may last anywhere from 8 to 17 days, but in some may even continue till 60 days. Medical abortion is effective in upto 90-98% of the cases. However, there is a small chance that surgical abortion may be needed in-case of failure of medical termination of pregnancy. Depending on how far along in the pregnancy you were, and how sensitive you are to hormones, you may have pregnancy hormones still in your body for up to a year after an abortion. It can take from 6-24 months after an interrupted pregnancy before your body and hormonal systems return to normal.The root cause of the bleeding should be addressed to before any interventions can be done.
This is why I would recommend that you see your doctor for a follow up.
