Question: Is it normal to not bleed after a surgical abortion?

 digitalanswers - Sat Jun 19, 2010 10:23 am

I got a surgical abortion on Tuesday and I only bled (a little!) and had some very bad cramping that same day. I was 9 weeks along. It is now Saturday and I have not bled since nor have I had any cramping at all. I have only had some off-whiteish (a little yellow) discharge since then. I'm really worried... is this normal?

User avatar Hello,
It is possible to have little or no bleeding. There is a wide range of bleeding including none that is considered normal.

Best wishes on a complete recovery.
