Okay. Here we go. I found out I was pregnant on April 16th. I went to the clinic and had a medical abortion April 17th. After two weeks I found out that I didn''t pass everything. The embryo was gone, but I still had a lot of debris, so I had a D&C on May 1st. Today is now May 11th and I had anal sex with my boyfriend. He wore a condom, if that matters....

I was wondering, do I have anything to be worried about? I stopped bleeding about 3 days ago.

Will this start the bleeding back up? And am I risking infection? I''m pretty nervous about this, but I think I''ll be ok. I just would like some advice.

Just make sure NOTHING that touched your anus touches your vulva or vagina without being thoroughly washed. You do not want any germs/bacteria to go up your vagina and into your uterus which is still pretty sensitive.

If you had an orgasm and you normally get contractions in your uterus, it may start up bleeding again.
