14 week surgical Abortion vs miscarriage. Does the womb look the same a day later or will a doctor be able to tell it was an abortion if he scanned me?

14 week surgical Abortion vs miscarriage. Does the womb look the same a day later or will a doctor be able to tell it was an abortion if he scanned me?

Experienced Dr Knows: Surgical abortion (or miscarriage) has stretching of the the cervix, the lowest part of the uterus, to remove the fetus. That stretching leaves bruising, tiny (less than 1/8" long) tears, bleeding, and even clots or tissue. An OB/GYN will definitely know SOMETHING went on with your cervix. If you are trying to hide your abortion from your doctor, ask yourself why. Your doctor needs to know. ...Read more

Sometimes: Sometimes, there hasn't been enough time to recuperate from the first pregnancy's loss of red blood cells (anemia), and nourishing nutrients to allow the pregnancy to continue. The second concern is genetic, as the first egg out of the box post abortion may not be the selection that has the full complement of genetic material to avoid miscarriage. ...Read more

Is a full term baby still possible after 2 abortions and 2 miscarriages?

After 2 miscarriages see a fertility md (rei) to look for causes of recurrent miscarriage, including uterus problems like polyps or fibroids, blood clotting disorders, immune system problems, low egg supply. Best wishes. ...Read more

How high of a risk is it to never have kids again after a abortion, and a miscarriage 7 before?

How high of a risk is it to never have kids again after a abortion, and a miscarriage 7 before?

Confusing question: Do you mean risk to fertility if she had an abortion and a MC 7 years ago ? I so, that story by itself does not mean she can't have kids. The human uterus can recover from these events and be ready for business again. If the abortion were botched or she had another reason the equipment wouldn't work for some other reason it could be a problem, ...Read more

There are many options available, all of which are less expensive and less stressful than that described above.

I've had one abortion and four miscarriages one due to a STD called gonorrhea which caused the first miscarriage is that why i keep miscarring now

No. See a specialist: The gonorrhea should have been treated after your 1st miscarriage. After 2 or more miscarriages we do tests to find out why. Possible causes include autoimmune conditions like antiphospholipid antibodies, blood clotting disorders, low egg supply, problems in the uterus like fibroids or a uterine septum, hormonal problems, or male or female genetic problems. Get checked out by a rei specialist. ...Read more

I've had 3 abortions and 1 miscarriage  and now i can't get pregnant why can't i get pregnant?

Need evaluation: This is impossible for any doctor here to answer without much more information. When you say you can't get pregnant, how long have you been trying? It takes an average of 6 months ; is not of concern unless you have been trying for a year. If that is the case you should see a good ob/gyn doc to have a thorough evaluation to determine why; but with a history of 4 pregnancies you have good odds. ...Read more
