Did you have an abortion, or are you considering one? You should be aware that womb damage is one of the significant risks and a serious complication of abortion.

Signs of Womb Damage After Abortion
If you had an abortion and think you may be experiencing complications, here are signs of womb damage to look out for:
- Abdominal pain and/or cramping
- Heavy bleeding
- Passing large blood clots
- Nausea and/or vomiting
Do not wait and wonder; seek immediate medical treatment to protect your health. Some abortion procedures are outpatient, meaning women are responsible for monitoring their recovery for complications like womb damage.
