Can doctor determine when doing pelvic if a woman has had an abortion?

No: Unless the abortion was quite recent, tissues in this area are terrific at healing themselves and getting back to normal function. Think about the tissue disruption that is a normal part of pregnancy and delivery and after 2 months or so, everything looks normal. ...Read more

What do you think on when it comes to women having control of ther body when it comes to abortion im doing this for a debate class at school and a doctor is a trusted proffesional

Doctors : Doctors may be trusted professionals, but they are by no means unified in their opinions on this topic. Like the rest of the country, the medical community includes people who very strongly align themselves with one side or the other of the debate. What may be different when you talk to doctors about abortion is their tendency to use scientific rather than religious arguments to justify their positions (though many doctors are extremely religious). On the one side, some doctors will point out that a fertilized egg is just a cluster of undifferentiated cells that would be completely unable to survive on its own. Furthermore, they will point out that many fertilized eggs fail to implant regardless of any action taken by a doctor or patient, so making that happen on purpose (by use of an iud or the morning after pill, for instance), is not very different from nature taking its own course. As the pregnancy gets established, these arguments become invalid, but those who support abortion--especially when the mother's physical or mental health are at risk--feel that forcing her to carry a pregnancy despite those risks unreasonably favors a potential future person at the cost of injuring an already-existing person. In some cases, continuing a pregnancy guarantees that both mother and fetus will die, and it can certainly be argued that that outcome serves no good. On the other hand, it is a fact that the cluster of cells created by the pairing of an egg and sperm has a unique package of dna that--some would argue--qualifies it as an individual human being. The individual cells are certainly alive, even if they are not yet identifiable as a person that has a life of its own. Following that logic, it is hard to justify doing anything that would prevent the unique genetic mix from reaching its full potential to develop into a baby that can and will survive on its own. Some people have therefore argued that using iuds and morning after pills--which prevent implantation of the fertilized egg into the uterus--are the moral equivalent of murder. Even those who feel differently about the fist few days of pregnancy may feel that taking more aggressive action to remove a pregnancy once it has implanted is inappropriate. ...Read more

Why don't the doctors tie the women tubes after the second abortion, cause they keep killing indecent kids, a lot of women can not have kids, adpotion, no abortion?

Number of abortions: Sterilization must be a matter of individual choice. Forced sterilization based on political-"medical" considerations were common in the early 20th century, until judged to be an unconstitutional infringement on women's autonomy. Multiple abortions occur for many reasons-- repeated coercive sex, contraceptive failures, genetic defects, and life circumstances. None justify sterilization. ...Read more

Hard to say: The irregularity in the structure of your uterus may make pregnancy difficult. I saw a baby last week born to a woman with the same problem, so it does happen. Surgical removal of the septum may be possible if there is an experienced surgeon in your area and that might improve your chances.Talk with your doc. ...Read more

Most importantly functional limitations. You make up your own story and we interpret. ...Read more

Pap Smear: The us preventive service task force (usptf) recommends cervical cancer screening with pap smear for ages 21-65 every 3 years unless you have a previous abnormal pap smear. So, unless you're sexually active, you can forego pap smear until you teach the age of 21. Hope this helps. ...Read more
