Should there be an odor after having an abortion?

When will the odor go away and is it normal?


Answer by  blang (45)

It is common to notice an odor after an abortion or pregnancy. It is similar to a yeast infection and will often go away on its own.

If there is persistent odor for more than a week along with foul smelling discharge it means that there is an infection and will need antibiotic therapy locally and systemically.


Answer by  T1DM (175)

There can be a foul odor and brownish blood. It should go away with in 2 weeks. If you are experiencing pain and/or it has been more than 2 weeks or is getting worse. Contact the Docotor that performed the abortion. If you are still concerned call right away. It could be a sign of a complication.

You should be concerned with an odor accompanied with a fever after this sort of procedure. It is best to consult with your physican as soon as possible to discuss possible side effects from a possible infection.
