If this abortion was done in a clinic you can call and share your concerns. In fact, the clinic should have called you a couple of times to make sure everything was OK. A post op check up at a doctor of your choice is usually recommended.

Otherwise, bleeding and even clots for one to three weeks is not a cause for alarm. If you go another couple of weeks still losing blood, a check up would be smart. Replacing the lost iron with diet or pills is also advised.

Why not post your question in the Doctor Question section where you will get a more informed reply.
