Infection After Abortion

Like all medical procedures, abortion has certain risks and side effects you should be aware of. Both medical abortion and surgical abortion cause abdominal cramping and vaginal bleeding.

Infection is a risk of both abortion procedures, and understanding the warning signs will help you seek prompt medical care.

Signs that urgent medical care is needed after a medical abortion include:

  • Heavy bleeding (soaking two or more pads an hour for two hours)
  • Severe abdominal or back pain
  • Fever lasting more than 24 hours
  • Foul-smelling vaginal discharge

Signs that urgent medical care is needed after a surgical abortion include:

  • Bleeding that’s heavy enough that you need to change pads every hour
  • Lasting dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Fever
  • Cramps lasting more than 48 hours
  • Pain that gets worse instead of better
  • Foul-smelling discharge from the vagina
