Can you still get pregnant after having an abortion?

You mean EVER?: Yes, you generally can get pregnant after having had an abortion.

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

Prenatal vitamins.: Your abortion should not affect your chances of pregnancy and so don't worry about things to do differently. Treat your body as you would any other day when preparing for pregnancy. The only thing I would recommend is a prenatal vitamin daily. ...Read more

Is it possible for you to still have pregnancy symptoms after abortion?

Abortion: Pregnancy hormone levels can remain positive for approximately 30 days after an abortion. It also depends if you had a surgical therapy for a miscarriage or a natural abortion. You might still feel pregnancy symptoms after a miscarriage since hormone levels are still elevated but hopefully decreasing. Follow up with your obgyn to make sure hormone levels drop to zero. ...Read more

I had a medical abortion 6 weeks ago, could a blood pregnant test still say positive?

Yes: It is vitally important to do weekly blood pregnancy tests until the value goes to non pregnant, usually 0-5 in most labs. If it does not, there is a possibility of an abnormal pregnancy known as a "molar pregnancy", either complete or partial. A value that does not go to 0 may also indicate incomplete emptying of your uterus. In any case at some point a d and c may be needed to clarify the issue. ...Read more

I believe I became pregnant last Monday (10 days ago. Have confirmed I am currently pregnant), can I still take plan b and it'll work? I can't afford an abortion. Please help

I believe I became pregnant last Monday (10 days ago. Have confirmed I am currently pregnant), can I still take plan b and it'll work? I can't afford an abortion. Please help

I'm afraid not: Plan B is very effective if taken up to 72 hours after an unprotected encounter. It is likely to still have good effect up to 5 days after the encounter. I'm afraid by day 10, the body will already be producing pregnancy-related hormones that will prevent Plan B from having any effect. A local Planned Parenthood is probably the best place to go or call for guidance, resources, and referral. ...Read more

Retained tissue?: It's possible that you have some retained tissue. It's also possible that your hormone level is dropping appropriately. I would recommend you see your doctor. They can perform an ultrasound to ensure uterus empty, as well as order an HCG to see what your hormone level is, quantitatively (by the numbers). Best of luck! ...Read more

Is it generally less difficult to get pregnant when your cervix is still open after an abortion?

NO: Your cervix should close immediately after an abortion- if the abortion is 'complete'. You can't get pregnant 'immediately' afterwards b/c your body won't be ovulating for a little while after the abortion occurs. ...Read more

I took abortion pills mifepristone 1 tablet and 4 mistoprotol tablets. Very very low bleeding. My question is am I still pregnant?

Uncertain: Typically if a woman does a regimen for medical abortion such as you did, they have bleeding like a period. It's possible that you're uterus is empty, but also possible that there's still tissue there. Best would be to make an appointment with your doctor. He/she may decide to perform an ultrasound to detect any possible retained tissue. ...Read more

Dangerous Health: Wow. That sounds like you have no respect for your body or for the babies you are creating because you are not taking the responsibility to protect against unwanted pregnancy. This makes me very sad.

Your health is not good. Your hormones are not balanced. Your uterus may be in trouble. I would get to the nearest family medicine clinic, or to a gynecologist or to planned parenthood for exam! ...Read more
