Can You Still Have Children After An Abortion
Can you have children after a surgical abortion? I want to know if my girlfriend can still have children after she had a surgical abortion when she was 18. She is now 19 about to be 20.
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How long after?: It is normal after abortion or pregnancy loss to have HCG in the blood for several days up to several weeks afterward. The higher it started the longer generally for it to come down. Unfortunately some abortions, like miscarriages, are also incomplete. This is something to talk with your real live doctor about. ...Read more
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe, maybe not: This really depends on the type of termination and the reaction of your body to the procedure. I am aware of one industrialized country I traveled to years ago that use terminations as their main form of birth control, even after the pill was readily available. Most went on to have kids later. ...Read more

I need home abortion if there's a way, because I can't get the medicine! I'm still in my 6 weeks?
Doctor can evaluate: The medicine is by prescription, so a woman goes to her Ob-Gyn doctor (or a women's clinic) to be evaluated for it. Whether or not medicine can be used also depends on the age of the baby fetus (the number of weeks pregnant). The doctor will talk with the patient to be sure that the patient is making a good permanent decision, because abortion is a hard decision for any woman to make. ...Read more
I know they were illegal during the 50's, but are abortions still undergone today in all countries?
Yes: Many countries outlaw abortion. Women still have them even when they are outlawed, they are just more likely to die from an illegal abortion. Abortion rates, in fact, can be higher in countries where they are illegal because women typically don't have good access to birth control in those countries. ...Read more

Hi, im almost 3months since I had the abortion and I still don't feel ok, I want to quit work and move to other country. Is it normal? Should I move?
I did an abortion but didn't bleed. The u/s showed 5weeks and 6days fetus and no heartbeat. Heartbeat would still be possible at 7 weeks and 4days?
No: If you had surgical (d;c) abortion the pregnancy was missed. If you used Cytotec (misoprostol) to induce termination it was unsuccessful. If there is a heart beat at 7 weeks and 4 days either the first heartbeat was missed or a new pregnancy was conceived. The abortion unfortunately was unsuccessful. Contact your doctor. ...Read more
