Symptoms of pain after abortion
There are cases when abdominal pains after an abortion are caused due to complications that arose during the operation: various microbes from the outside can enter the injured uterus while infecting. Scientifically speaking, the infection causes endometritis (inflammation of the uterine mucosa). In this case, the pain is almost inevitable, so a visit to the doctor can not be postponed.
Nevertheless, there are characteristic signs that an infection could have occurred during an operation to extract the fetus. If a woman complains of general weakness, chills, soreness of the cervix, abdominal pain, as well as back pain after abortion, then there is a possibility of infection.
Pain after abortion can occur because the fetal egg has not been removed completely. Yes, this also happens. Remnants of the fetal egg interfere with the process of contraction of the uterus, so abdominal pain and back pain, as well as heavy bleeding, often accompany the woman after the artificial prevention of pregnancy.
It should also be noted that the cause of pain in the abdomen of women after abortion may be premature physical exertion on the body, such as active sports or the rapid resumption of sexual activity.
Pain after medical abortion
Let's now consider the causes of pain after medical abortion. As already mentioned above, medical abortion provokes special drugs that a woman should take strictly under the supervision of a doctor. Although this method is relatively safe, no one is immune from unpleasant consequences in the form of secretions and pains. Cramping pain after abortion is often a consequence of the drug method. How is this explained? The answer is simple: because of the drugs, the muscles begin to contract and push the fruit out of the vagina. Most often, the pain is tolerant and more like a menstrual. But if severe pain after abortion is observed with a medicamentous method and lasts more than 2 days, it is necessary to urgently consult a doctor.
