How many times can a woman do an abortion before its dangerous? With consideration that she never gave birth before..

As few as required: It's a difficult question; there's no "safe" or "unsafe" line you cross. Most 1st trimester abortion is very safe, some women have 3-4 and are fine. But, some have problems after 1. If an abortion is necessary you must decide, but if it's more than once or twice you might think seriously about prevention. ...Read more

Which part of a young womans body is affected most after abortion?

Which part of a young womans body is affected most after abortion?

Emotions: Since a woman's uterus heals so rapidly and completely after an abortion, in my view, her emotional condition is the most affected by the abortion.

I have medical abortion three times after that taking unwanted for 3times should this block bcoz I m not concieving when I now?

Are you trying to say that after your medical abortions you have been trying to conceive but not able to, and you think there's a link between the two? It is possible BUT make sure your uterus is clean and there isn't much scar tissue because this can prevent implantation. Otherwise you should be able to conceive. See a fertility expert. ...Read more
