I had an abortion exactly a week ago yesterday. I have had all the mental symptoms as far as dreams, me crying about missing my child, hearing babies cry, and even the physical changes. But one thing that I don't know is that I was examining my breasts the other day because they've grown in size (i was 11 weeks pregnant the day I had the procedure) and I squeezed around my nipple and a clear, almost white substance came out. It wasnt much coming out of either nipple, but everytime I go back and check it still comes out. I'm not leaking it, but I have to squeeze them to get it out. Is this normal? Is it milk? When will it stop and am I okay? I really need some help please someone let me know!! :cry: :?:

Yes that is normal, I promise. What worries me is your emotional well being and your dreams. How did you have your abortion? Were you coerced, or did you feel pressure from someone else? I wanna help you feel better :)

As long as blood is not coming out of your nipple I would not worry. A little clear liquid came out of my nipple when I had my abortion...It's nothing to worry about.
Try to stay positive. I know it is hard but there most likely was a reason for you to do this. I've had those dreams too. I'm here for you and you are not the only one.

You should be ok...They told me that you can still have pg symptoms a couple of weeks after the procedure...Most places offer a 4-6 week checkup free of charge...Make sure you go and see if everything is ok...Keep us posted...

But again I really appreciate the advice guys! I don't have to worry anymore!
