Can You Have Kids After An Abortion
48 hours if you can: It is best to wait at least 48 hours if you can because of unpredicible bleeding and cramping. You would be wise to remain close to medical help in the unlikely scenario you might need it. There is also a very rare chance of blood clot risk right after any surgical procedure and air flight may raise that risk ever so slightly. Rest, hydrate, and move the air flight two days ahead if possible. ...Read more
How soon could someone get pregnant after an abortion? I'm scared to have sex because I've heard your most fertile after having a baby or an abortion.
Soon: Depending on how far along you were, it is possible to ovulate and get pregnant again within a few weeks after an abortion.

If you had certain medical complications, i.e., infection, you could have problems that would make getting pregnant more difficult - but it's not likely. Most women have healthy pregnancies later in their lives - when they are really to welcome a baby. If you mean, right after an abotion, yes it can happen, so take precautions. ...Read more
Absolutely: It used to be taught that endometriosis patients had not only pain but infertility. However I have seen many patients who had neither and were still found to have significant endometriosis.

This provides visual/pathology confirmation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have 4 girls all c-section is there a limit of kids you can have if you had a c-section?Also can you have it vaginal after you had a c-section?
Probably/probably no: Most obstetricians would probably not like for you to have too many csections . Healing that may change the texture and strength of the uterus. Because of that risk and because you have had 4 csections, vbac or vaginal birth after cesarean section is probably not right for you. ...Read more
Usually yes: Vaginal birth after a c/section (vbac) is a topic you may wish to discuss with your obstetrician or midwife. Several individual factors may influence your decision, so it's hard to answer your question more specifically. In addition, some obstetricians will not offer vbac because of the the risk, albeit small, of a ruptured uterus. ...Read more
