What Are the Signs of an Incomplete Abortion?
Women should be aware of several important signs and symptoms of incomplete abortions. According to the National Library of Medicine, some of these include:
Heavy vaginal bleeding and passing of clots
Abdominal and pelvic pain that may radiate to other locations
Rare but still possible is cervical shock resulting in slow heart rate and low blood pressure, which can be unresponsive to IV treatment
Before considering an abortion, please speak to a supportive physician or pregnancy center to understand these risks and how they could impact your health and safety.
What Is an Incomplete Abortion?
An incomplete abortion occurs when pregnancy tissue has not fully exited the body. This can quickly become a life-threatening condition that cannot be treated at home with conservative treatment. Instead, women must seek medical treatment immediately to take care of this condition.
Procedures that can put you at an increased risk of an incomplete abortion are ineffective elective abortions such as:
Surgical abortion: the removing of pregnancy tissue through surgical techniques, including suctioning.
Medical abortion: the removal of pregnancy tissue through a medication routine.
What Should I Do if I Suspect I am Experiencing an Incomplete Abortion?
If you suspect you may be facing an incomplete abortion but are unsure, reach out to a trusted medical professional. Seeking medical attention is essential to staying safe and healthy.
