Hi, I had a medical abortion roughly five weeks ago and I am now on my first period since.
I have been bleeding for 8 days straight (before the abortion my periods used to last no longer than 4 days) and the flow is extremely heavy. I am soaking through pads every couple of hours and to the extent where it is leaking and staining clothing. I won't feel any bleeding for an hour or so but then all of a sudden I stand up and I can feel so much blood coming out. My periods have never been particularly heavy which is why I am concerned. At the beginning of the week the blood was quite brown but now it is bright red with clots in it. Should I be concerned about this? Thanks x
