Welcome to this forum.
Though irregular as well as persistent bleeding can occur following an abortion,probability is there that you have some retained bits inside. Do not worry. Just meet your doctor. A clinical examination as well as a scan might help here to know if you have anything inside. A retained conceptual might need a removal by dilatation and curettage. But if nothing is found in side? Few courses of birth control pills will work here to regulate your cycle.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
