Hello Oscar Infection,
Abdominal cramps according to miscarriage is normal, can last 2-4 weeks after the action of curettage or administration of drugs to stimulate uterine contractions (for example: misoprostol). Abdominal cramps arise due to contractions of the uterus and the uterus that shrinks back to its original size before becoming pregnant. Then like a person after giving birth will also appear mucus from the vagina called lochia the color varies from reddish (like menstrual blood) then will gradually turn brown and yellowish and then stop.
Vaginal bleeding can also last from 2 weeks to 6 weeks (rarely) after an abortion. In the post-abortion healing phase, the vagina and uterus are in a vulnerable condition, so it is advisable to avoid:
Sexual intercourse for a while
Insert foreign objects into the vagina such as fingers, tampons, menstrual cups that are not clean
Swim or soak in a public bath
This is avoided so that there is no infection in the uterus. Infection in the uterus is characterized by severe pain in the lower abdomen, high fever, vaginal discharge coming out of smell, bleeding and lochia that does not stop for a long time, can also be accompanied by subinvolution of the uterus (the size of the uterus does not shrink).
Immediately consult a gynecologist if you experience signs of the infection. If not, consume drugs that have been given by the doctor. Can consume foods high in iron, protein, vitamins to speed healing. Supplements that contain iron can also help overcome the condition of blood loss after abortion. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
