agree - please get someone to take you to see a doctor urgently. If your gp doesn't have an emergency appointments then find your nearest walk in clinic or go to a&e

I'm no expert, but I echo what KK says - you really need to go to A & E. You sound very poorly and you shouldn't wait to see your own Dr. I hope you get some help soon x

Well, if I were you I'd ask for an emergency appointment to get this sorted ASAP and if there aren't any, call your out-of-hours Dr.

I think the brown discharge could be old blood which hasn't been passed out of the womb. The pains may be a result of side effects of the meds or from the infection but GP could say more as to what it's likely to be. Also, some meds (especially meds like iron tablets) can make the stools go dark brown or black.

I will say again that you should arrange an emergency appointment or call out-of-hours Dr as 1) you're in pain 2) the infection may not have been completely killed off 3) you need to know what's happening and get it sorted.

I would get to A&E ASAP.
It may be - worst case scenario - retained products of a termination causing an infection (from personal experience). Otherwise, at least a check from medical personnel can do no harm.
