It can take 6-8 weeks after an abortion for you to get your period... That is almost 2 months..

It is normal, but you could always get birth control pills at the gyn, they would help regulate your periods.

Strange First Period
I had a medical abortion over a month ago and when I went for my follow-up everything was fine. 2 weeks after my follow-up I got my period, but it never became a normal red, clotty period, just some mucousy brown stuff for about 5 days. It never became heavy enough to really need anything more than a lite tampon.

I know that there was a warning saying that following a medical abortion it is really easy to get pregnant. Im wondering if Im pregnant again. I feel very bloated in the lower abdomen, I have had lower back pain, have been exhausted and nothing tastes right. I had not been feeling pregnant at all until the last few days. I think I should wait to see if my next period is back to normal, before I freak out completely, but I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience, and what the outcome was.

re
if the sperm or a little sperm like spot was touching your vagina yes is possible depends on temperature the sperm can be killed or live and swim inside your vagina. this thing is weird and also has a very small percentage so the woman can be pregnant! read about that on google search and read it will be helpful!!!

are you pregnant? is it your period?
first, to become pregnant again you need a new egg, if you are on the pill you have to start the pill the day after the abortion pill, and not have sex for seven days. after that you should be fine. as for the bleeding, you can bleed for up to five weeks afterwards. your real period doesn't come until between the sixth to eighth week when your whole uterus is lined and ready and you ovulate again and your new egg is ready to go!

Abortion: Starting period after abortion
Reply for 'question about my bleeding'
I had a nonsurgical abortion about 4 weeks ago and I bled for about 2 weeks and then continued to just spot brown stuff. Yesterday I passed a dark brown clot and today I am bleeding again. This time the blood is red though. i am wondering if that is my period starting. its only been about 4 weeks since the proceedure though. i do feel bloated and a little sore in my lower abdomen today. I did not make it to my follow up appt as well. Well, I went, but when i got there they told me doctor wasn't in due to cancellation of his flight from snow blizzard. I never went back. I am curious as to other people's experience with nonsurgical abortion??

Period after medical abortion
I had a medical (non-surgical) abortion nearly two weeks ago. I live in the UK. I'm not expected to return for a follow-up visit, but was given two home pregnancy test kits to wee on after three weeks. I had heavy bleeding for three days after taking the second set of pills and now I'm just spotting. Just when I think it's all over, I start getting bright red blood again! Anyway, it says in my after care leaflet that I should expect a normal period any time between four-six weeks, and to contact them if I don't get a period after six weeks. I didn't go on any contraception - planning on getting the non-hormonal coil but the boyfriend is not keen on that! Well...we'll have to see about that! I'll update you in a few weeks' time. Good luck to you all.
