Well I'm not sure of an abortion but I'm going to assume it is like anyone who looses their pregnancy and it takes a while for your HCG levels to reach 0 and until they reach 0 you will continue to have symptoms. After my miscarriage it took 4 weeks for me to show - on a pregnancy test and for them to return to 0.

I absolutely can't stand posts on abortion.  I realize everybody makes their own decisions, but there are so many women on here that are ttc, that it is just cruel to point out that you intentionally aborted a child.

When you say abortion do you mean a D&C b/c you had problems with the pregnancy or lost it???

I'm curious to know that myself Kelly.... I can understand if it was a D&C because something was wrong, but if she intentionally did it then she really needs to find somewhere else to post.. We are woman who are pregnant, and took LONG roads to get there, or still TTC and abortion is a very touchy subject for me especially since my daughter Hailley...

I'm not sure where she is from, but I know in alot of other countries they call a D&C an abortion......Actually on my paperwork from my D&C it was marked as a "Missed AB"...which kind of made me mad, but it was preprinted on the paperwork!  LOL!

The word abortion was used to mean "miscarriage" LONG before elective abortions were public. Abortion is the technical term for miscarriage but because it has such a negative connotation now, most docs will tell you you've had a m/c but they'll write 'abortion' on your paperwork. It's just what it's called. It doesn't mean you elected for it to happen.

As for the posters question, alaysha's response was correct. You probably still have hormones in your body, which is causing you to feel this way. But if you are concerned for any reason, you need to call your doctor or the clinic and get some reassurance from a medical professional.

I received a note from monica this morning, I do feel bad for her that she has lost 2 babies in the past due to medical complications.  However she is from the US and this was an abortion, not miscarriage.

I have some post-abortive websites that may be of help to her. If she's interested, please let her know she can message me. I don't want to harass her or send her a list of links if she's not interested. These websites talk about dealing with the emotional and physical issues associated after an abortion.

i think i need to say something. im sorry to the women on here that are TTC or cannot have babies...i truly feel for all of you and i cant imagine what that must feel like. however i have had an abortion before when i was 17. i chose to do this and while it may not be morally right, it is a reality and women experience this everyday. i was terrified and alone, i didn't think i could carry a child because my dad runs a christian school. not only would i be expelled from my highschool but my father would have potentially lost his job. so yes, sometimes there are valid reasons for getting an abortion. while it is not the right option ( and i regret it now ) women turn to it in times of need and this can be very understandable. if you have a problem with the fact that monica203 had an abortion, you should keep it to yourself. she wasn't asking for anyone's opinion of her decision, nor was she seeking counsel. she wanted advice on her medical condition like the rest of us, and she has the right to receive that without any negative responses from other ladies.
monica203: i am here if you ever need to talk--and i agree your nausea is from your hcg levels not returning to normal yet. it took my breasts weeks to return to their normal size, so this probably was the same issue.

I can see that you're awfully sensitive to this subject but please don't keep bringing up posts that are several months old. That just has the potential of stirring things up again for women who are pregnant right now and are super sensitive to this subject. (Some of us aren't pregnant but are still a bit sensitive to this subject. :)

It's not an easy thing being a pregnant teen, young and scared. I do understand that. I'm experiencing that right now with my pregnant 17 year old daughter. All we can do is do the best we can with what we've got.
I wish you well and I hope you can find some peace and healing. I know this must have been a difficult time for you. God bless.
