Infertility after abortion is usually from adhesion/scarring in the uterine cavity or damage to fallopian tubes. Later gestation abortions and those with significant complications are at particular risk. Good wishes. ...Read more

Retained products: It sounds as if you had an abortion and then had to go back for a dilatation and curettage because you had retained products of conception (not all pregnancy tissue came out after your initial abortion). This can happen and most of the time after the D&C everything is good and you return to having regular cycles. Occasionally, women have to go back a second time for a D&C. ...Read more

Rh antibodies will not affect your ability to become pregnant but they could potentially affect the pregnancy itself. When you become pregnant, an antibody screen will be one of the first labs that is drawn to see if any antibodies have formed. ...Read more
