The National Library of Medicine states signs of an incomplete abortion include: 

  • Heavy Bleeding
  • Abdominal cramping 
  • Fever
  • Low blood pressure

Understanding what an incomplete abortion is, how it can impact your health, and when it becomes necessary to seek emergency treatment is vital to your health and wellness. If you are contemplating abortion, speak with a trusted professional first to receive the answers you need to make an informed decision.

What’s an Incomplete Abortion?

An incomplete abortion is defined as “the partial loss of the products of conception.” 

This can occur after a medical or surgical abortion procedure and must be treated immediately to avoid life-threatening complications. Understanding this risk before an abortion is important and should be discussed with a trusted provider or local pregnancy center.  

What Are Signs of Complications Arising?

Awareness of complications arising can be lifesaving. It’s vital to understand when to reach out if you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency to get the necessary care and treatment. 

When complications occur, they cannot be treated at home, and waiting to contact medical services is dangerous.  

Signs to watch for are: 

  • Soaking through 1 pad hour, passing numerous blood clots vaginally 
  • Abdominal or pelvic pain
  • Cramping that can be similar to labor pains
  • Low blood pressure 
  • Feeling faint or light-headed
  • Increased pulse rate over 100 beats per minute when resting

Speak with a medical professional about manifestations you should be aware of before an abortion procedure. Being empowered with knowledge is important for your health and safety.
