Can A Medical Abortion Cause Infertility
Does medical abortion cause infertility? I am trying to get pregnant after an abortion 5 months ago and no results. I have really irregular periods
Rarely a problem: Most abortions (medical or surgical) don't cause future fertility problems, but if you have some pregnancy tissue left behind or an infection afterwards it can cause scarring inside your uterus (asherman's syndrome). A hysterosalpingogram (hsg) test will check for this as well as checking that your tubes are open. You should get checked to find out why you're irregular by a rei physician.
Absolutely NO: The idea that suction abortion causes uterine scarring has long been found to be false. Uterine scarring has happeded in postpartum (after delivery) curretting especially in the presence of infection. Should a patient have a pre-existing bacterial infection does increase concern but all patients are pre-treated with antibiotics prior to surgery minimizing infection to nearly zero.See 2 more doctor answers
PID: Pelvic inflammatory disease or infection after abortion may cause scaring in the genital tract the ovaries release eggs that are swept into the fallopian tubes and into the uterus. Inflammation ; scaring of the tubes may cause blockages ; the eggs cannot pass. Severe infections may scar the ovaries preventing egg release ; the endometrium (lining) of uterus preventing implantation of an embryo.
No: A uterine coil doesn't cause infertility. Best wishes!
Will two D&C cause me to have scar tissue leading to becoming infertile? I made poor chocises where I had two abortions after my son I'm so worried!
Unlikely: D&C may cause scar tissue in the uterine cavity and may cause the cavity to 'stick' together. If this happens then you most likely will not have a period after the D&C and you may need surgery to separate the cavity. If you are seeing your period then scar is unlikely to affect your fertility.
I had an medical abortion 2 weeks ago and I'm gettin pains in my vagina and gettin brown discharge what is this and can it make me infertile?
Post Procedure D/C: A brown discharge and some pain right after an instrument procedure is not uncommon, and is the body's way of cleaning out the debrided tissues. Normally, these should subside in a week or so. If the symptoms continue much longer, it would be prudent to consult your gynecologist. Make an appointment sooner if you develop a fever or the discharge becomes heavier.
What kind of infection post abortion causes infertility? Will a yeast infection after abortion cause infertility?
Possible, not likely: It obviously depends on any complications, such as endometritis, salpingitis, endometrial scarring (asherman syndrome) during or after the abortion - in general it is not common for women to become infertile after an abortion, although it is not unheard of.See 1 more doctor answer
