Yes: Decades ago I served overseas as a pediatrician in a country where the pill had not caught on.It was not uncommon for a local woman to have 2-3 in her lifetime and go on to have a regular family. As long as the termination did not injure any working parts, they should work fine in the future. ...Read more

People : People have children well into their 40's now. It is concerning that you have been unsuccessful getting pregnant if you have been trying for 2 years. I suggest that you get evaluated by a gynecologist to make sure that everything is ok. Your husband should probably also have a sperm count. In vitro fertilization is far far down the road if necessary. Best wishes. ...Read more

Thoughts? Could sex still feel good after my abortion?

Thoughts? Could sex still feel good after my abortion?

Should do: Important that you don't have feelings of guilt. Am sure you have weighed up all the consequences & your age suggests that you have. Might benefit from some counselling or couple of visits to a psychiatrist in case of guilt feelings. Otherwise sex should be just as pleasant as it was, once you have recovered from the procedure. ...Read more

I had a abortion at 13 will this stop me from having children?

I had a abortion at 13 will this stop me from having children?

Probably not: Most women don't have long-term effects on their fertility from past abortions. Surgical abortion (d&c), tissue left behind after an abortion, or infection after abortion can cause scar tissue inside the uterus (asherman's syndrome), but this is rare. Get checked out if you try to have kids without success in the future, but don't worry about it if you haven't started trying yet. ...Read more
