A little bit worried,

Hi there, Just wondered if anybody can perhaps shed some light on my concerns. For the last month has been experiencing on and off tension headaches, occasional dizziness and off and on feeling sick. I had a termination just over 3 weeks ago and am still spotting slightly and showing a weak positive when taking a pregnancy test. I rang up and spoke to a nurse who told me that it’s normal and to test again in a few days. The Nurse also said that pregnancy hormone is probably causing the headaches as it can take up to 5 weeks for the hormone to completely leave your system. These headaches can occur at anytime of day and usually happen at least three times a day. I wouldn’t say they are severe but like a tension headache or heavy head like after you have been out on a night out. I got these headaches and felt a bit sick before I had the termination at 5 weeks and 6 days and although the other pregnancy symptoms have subsided, the headaches are still there. I should mention I have felt fairly stressed out lately what with the trauma of the whole termination and worry of it all, plus we are buying a house which is causing us grief and I am starting a new career. Could it just be stress? I would be interested to hear from anyone who has had headaches after medical abortion or who can shed some light on this matter as I am getting worried.
