From what I can tell from other posts, some people do bleed for much longer than what they tell you at the clinics. I'm still bleeding at 4 1/2 weeks. But, blood clots bigger than an orange are a bad sign. I had one that was about that size. It looks like you posted this 2 weeks ago. Are you still bleeding? I'm curious.

bleeding after 2 weeks
Dear Healthnut

I had an abortion with 400mcg misoprostol pills inserted vaginally 13 days ago. I was 4-5 wks from day of conception. The bleeding started same day and its been there since then but light as my normal period, i use 1 pad from 7am to when i get home back from work around 5pm. But am worried coz am still bleeding slightly. The midwife who inserted the pills says its not normal and we should go for an uterine aspiration? Is it necessary? I have no abnormal pain and am taking antibiotics to avoid any infection. Please help!

I'm not a doctor, but that seems pretty normal to me. The clinic told me I would bleed 2-4 weeks. It finally stopped about a day after I found this forum, which ended up being about 4 1/2 weeks after I took the pill. I even went to the emergency room around 3 weeks. It had lightened up to about what my normal period is. But then one day I filled about one pad every 2 or 3 hours. And I started passing kind of large clots (prune-sized). I freaked and went to the ER, but the doc said I was just still passing the leftovers. And everyone on this forum seems to have similar experiences. Pain and REALLY large clots appear to be the only real sign of trouble. But if you still feel wary, see a doctor. It can only help.
