Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • I just read your query and from what you have mentioned, I would say that the women usually gain weight after abortion for many reasons:
  1. Water retention.
  2. Emotional eating.
  3. To fulfill the stress of undergoing an abortion, the body triggers off a hunger mechanism.

Hope you find my advice beneficial.
