You had sex very soon after the abortion, when your womb was still raw (especially in the spot where the placenta was attached). This may have caused you to develop an infection, which is causing the pain. You shouldn't ignore it because it can lead to blockage of the tubes and infertility. The sooner you go back to the clinic where you had the abortion, the better. At five weeks post-abortion you should, in any case, be just about ready for a check up.

Ifyou had sex pritty much after the abortion then that could of caused the pains in your pelvic area or it could be all down to the abortion.

If you dont mind me asking what was the reason for the abortion?

You could of fallen pregnant again as my friend had an abortion for a certain reason and then she had sex pritty much after and fell pregnant straigh away.
