After confirmation: it is recommended that you see your doctor in 1 to 2 weeks after your abortion you ensure that the procedure has been completed and you are no longer pregnant.

I had sex with a person that has gental herpes but no open sores, the condom broke, I washed very well am I still at a high risk of contracting it?
Low risk: In monogamous couples in whom one person has genital herpes due to HSV2, who have unprotected sex 2-3 times a week (and no sex during outbreaks), the transmission chance averages about once for every 1,000 exposures. That's roughly your risk from this single event. It's even lower if partner's herpes is HSV1. No exam or testing is needed if no symptoms (genital sores, pain) in the nest 7-10 days. ...Read more
Herpes/intercourse: First of all, if know you have herpes, you should never have unprotected sex (use a condom). This applies to both genital as well as oral sex. Transmission of the herpes virus is a constant risk, even if there is not an active, open sore. So, in this sense, the harm would be transmission of the virus to your partner. Since there are various strains of the virus, you could super-infect a partner. ...Read more

Cerclage stitch: A cerclage is often done with a type of suture called Prolene. It is very sharp like chicken wire. I think your partner would find vaginal penetration very unpleasant. Typically there are no restrictions regarding other sexual activity in patients with a cerclage. You will have to get clearance from your doctor if their are unique circumstances regarding your specific pregnancy. ...Read more
