Was it documented that she had a positive pregnancy test before she took the "abortion pill," or was she taking it because she had unprotected sex and wanted to avoid pregnancy. That makes a difference in how you code the heavy bleeding. With no documentation of positive pregnancy you would use 626.8 for dysfunctional bleeding. If she was bleeding as a result of taking the pill and having an abortion you would use 639.1 for delayed excessive hemorrhage following an abortion.
