Hi I'm currently trying to have a baby but I cantt in the past I've had a abortion could that be why?

Many possibilities.: Most quote an average of 6 mo trying before achieving pregnancy and few would consider a fertility workup needed after less than a year of trying. There is no reason to dwell on the past as if anything it shows you can get pregnant. There is also a male component to the issue and if this continues your partner will need to be included in the evaluation. ...Read more

How not have a baby during pregnancy without abortion? Which you can do at home to secretly lose your baby? Please help I don't want to be pregnant and I want to lose it.

How not have a baby during pregnancy without abortion? Which you can do at home to secretly lose your baby? Please help I don't want to be pregnant and I want to lose it.

A doctor can help: Humans naturally get pregnant and have babies, by having sex. Otherwise, we humans might go extinct. It would be unnatural to somehow at home easily get rid of a baby fetus. A woman needs to go to a women's clinic, an Ob-Gyn doctor, or a primary care doctor who prescribes abortion pills (and be very early in the pregnancy) to ask for help to get rid of her baby fetus. It's a big, serious decision. ...Read more

I think im pregnant I haven taken a test but I really can't have a baby it will ruin my life, and I can't have an abortion because my parents will find?

I think im pregnant I haven taken a test but I really can't have a baby it will ruin my life, and I can't have an abortion because my parents will find?

Take a Deep Breath: Panic seems to creeping into your space. First, take a pregnancy test. Then, be prepared to own up to your life. Whatever, fallout there may be to deal with now, will not come close to the burden of a secret. Counselors at places like planned parenthood (1-800-230-plan) or at a local teen/adolescent clinic will help you confidentially decide how to go forward. ...Read more

I'm so scared I might be pregnant and I don't want too die from childbirth and I don't want too die from abortion infection I don't know wat to do?

Many people have extremely strong feelings on both sides. Honestly, it is up to the parents, the ob, the pediatrician, and the geneticist to sit down, explore the information and the parents decide. ...Read more
