Why do abortions cause problems with implantation of the embryo in the uterus?

Why do abortions cause problems with implantation of the embryo in the uterus?

Just after one and half month of abortion, I take a morning after pill...Does it hurt uterus a lot ? I am so worried

Not harmful: It's not harmful to the uterus to take a morning after pill even if there was an abortion performed 6 weeks ago. But it does sound like you need a better form of contraception. If you don't want to be pregnant, you'll need to prevent the risk in the future. ...Read more

I had 4 abortions. One at 9 weeks and the rest at 7 weeks. Could I have scarring in my uterus ? No complications periods every month

Yes: While most women are not going to develop significant scarring inside the uterus as a result of a pregnancy termination - having repeated terminations could have that effect and that could have a negative effect on fertility. An HSG or a sonohysterogram would be able to show if there is scarring / adhesions inside the uterus. If that does occur it is treatable by surgical intervention. ...Read more
