I discovered I was pregnant almost 6 weeks ago...At the time of my discovery I was 2 weeks preg. I can't continue with the pregnancy, and I didn't have the money for an abortion at the time of the discovery, so I decided to try a herbal abortion. So for roughly two weeks I was taking the herbs about 8-10 times a day...I realized it wasn't working so I stopped...The pregnancy symptoms continued for about a week, and then they just stopped...I had slight spotting during the 2 weeks of herbal treatments, but right around the time the symptoms stopped there was no bleeding at all...However, a few days later I discovered that for about 3 hours after an orgasm every time I wiped myself there would be blood clots on the tissue...This has continued daily for just over a week...Every time I have an orgasm (and ONLY after orgasm), I bleed, but not enough to signify a miscarriage...I'm going to the doctor in about 2 weeks to schedule an abortion, but I wanted to know if it's possible that the fetus has already died, and simply hasn't expelled as yet?

Ultrasound scanning of the foetus may give you the information you require. This is a safe and non-invasive procedure.
