Abortion can be risky, and some of these risks have serious health consequences that can impact you for years to come. One of the risks associated with medical and surgical abortions is incomplete abortion, which occurs when some of the pregnancy tissue remains in the uterus.

If left untreated, an incomplete abortion can be deadly. Prompt medical treatment is always required, and surgery may be needed to remove the remaining tissue. Take action as soon as possible; your health matters!

Who is At Risk of Having an Incomplete Abortion?

An incomplete abortion can happen to anyone, but certain women are more likely to develop one if they have one of the following conditions:

  • History of having C-sections
  • Having a late-term abortion
  • Infections
  • Bleeding disorders

Identifying whether you may have an incomplete abortion can be tricky because the signs of one can also be the symptoms of another medical condition. This is why it’s essential to go to the nearest emergency room if you have had an abortion and develop any of these symptoms:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cramping
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Abdominal or lower back pain
  • Passing large clots through vaginal bleeding
  • Foul-smelling discharge from the vagina

Where Can I Go for Help?

If you’re having symptoms of an incomplete abortion, you should seek medical care immediately at your nearest emergency room. It’s crucial that you get the treatment you need as soon as possible.
