Those who experience an incomplete abortion may show signs and symptoms that include:

If you believe you or someone you know is having an incomplete abortion, it’s best to call emergency services immediately to get the help needed. Don’t wait. Waiting can be life-threatening to health and wellness.
What Is An Incomplete Abortion?
An incomplete abortion can occur after an abortion. When parts of the pregnancy remain in the uterus and are not completely evacuated, complications can take place.
An incomplete abortion is considered a complication of an abortion procedure. Before an abortion, women should be provided with all information, an ultrasound and risks. This is important so they can make an informed decision and know how to monitor their health.
At What Point Should Emergency Services Be Requested?
Any time a woman doesn’t feel well, and she believes it may be related to her abortion procedure, it is in her best interests to reach out to a medical professional immediately.
Some manifestations to watch for that a complication may be occurring include:
- Soaking two or more pads an hour for two hours
- Severe abdominal or back pain
- Fever lasting more than 24 hours
- Foul-smelling vaginal discharge
- Hypotension (low blood pressure)
- Feeling faint
- An elevated pulse rate
Even if you’re unsure of what is making you feel ill, getting the help you need to protect your health and wellness is best. Don’t hesitate to call emergency services; your health is essential!
