I had the procedure Tuesday but now im in pain and it reminds me of the pain i had when i miscarried. It feels like my uterus is contracting and it hurts. My mom saids its like after birth pains and that my body is just getting rid of anything left in there and my uterus is contracting. Back. Has anyone had this happen

I did have some cramp-like pain for days after. How is your bleeding?

Bleeding is normal like a period. Its just the cramping thats getting me

That's normal (never had an abortion but I had a miscarriage). I had a D&C and I was cramping for 3-4 days and the bleeding became pink-like. I bled for 12 days.

You'll cramp like that for a bit. It's not an issue unless it is absolutely unbearable and/or your bleeding is profuse.

It is normal, like was said. I was told my cramping would be similar to my period cramps but mine were a lot more intense and overall a different type of pain. It eased up pretty quickly for me but I had a friend that had pain for three weeks after hers. She was fine. Your uterus has to contract back to the normal size before you were pregnant and your cervix also will take a while (two weeks) to go back to normal since it will be dilated.
