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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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.

I have an abortion 5 months ago with no complication trying to get pregnant ever since but no results. Did I became infertile? What's wrong with me?
See a doctor: An abortion without complications should not cause infertility, but if you are concerned, please see your gynecologist or a reproductive endocrinologist (rei) for advice and possible evaluation and treatment. At less than 35 years of age it can be normal to take up to a year to conceive. So 5 months without conception is normal. Best of luck! ...Read more
I am 22 had an abortion done by suction and haven't had my period for 3 months now. Am I infertile?
Usually not/no: Multiple abortions usually will not result in infertility. If you get a pelvic infection due to an abortion, that could cause scarring and infertility. Also, if you have many abortions, the cervix may become looser and you may be more apt to have a pregnancy loss, but that's different from infertility. Yeast infections don't cause infertility. ...Read more

Too little data: In order to answer your question I would need to know for how long you have tried to conceive after removal of the coil, and whether the partner is the same. You may want to consider an online consult. ...Read more
I've had an abortion and then a LEEP 8 years ago. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 3 months. Am I infertile?
No.: Of 100 healthy couples trying to get pregnant, half are pregnant by 6 months, 75% by 9 mos, and 85% by one year, which means 15% of healthy couples will take more than a year to conceive. We don't usually recommend testing before the year unless there are obvious risk factors. An uncomplicated termination or a LEEP shouldn't affect getting pregnant, but get preconception info from OB. Good luck! ...Read more

2 kids born 13&15 yrs old. 1 abortion year 06 2 miscarriages yr 06 & 13, I had ultrasound of cervix twice told everything look well. Infertile?
No...: Infertility is defined by someone who is unable to conceive. You have been pregnant so infertility does not sound like it is a problem that you have. Miscarriages are emotionally difficult; however, know that they are very common and most women that have a miscarriage are ultimately able to have a successful pregnancy. ...Read more
2 days after abortion back to hospital as had flu symptoms which resulted in a second operation to remove a tiny fragment left. Am I infertile now?
Trying to conceive for 2 months after coil removal and surgical abortion 8 months prior. Could I be infertile as a result of abortion and coil insert?
Patience: Many things are possible in life, but 2 months is too short of a time to think about infertility. If there is a good reason to suspect fertility problems, one should start asking one's Ob-Gyn doctor after 6 months of regular sex between a happy, relaxed wife and her happy, relaxed husband. If there is no reason to suspect infertility at all, then one can give it 9-12 months before worrying. ...Read more
