What are my chances of having polcystic ovary syndrome if i had an abortion( 3 years ago) and just started having irregular period this year.

Still Possible: Pcos is defined by irregular menstrual cycles and signs of hyperandrogenism. You don't have to have polycystic ovaries to have the syndrome. Infertility is commonly seen with pcos, but there is always a possibility of pregnancy if you happened to ovulate that month. You may need to be placed on a medication called metformin to help with the Insulin resistance and help with ovulation. ...Read more

My wife had an surgical abortion about 7 months ago and ever since has had irregular periods.And now since of late her period has lasted over 25 days?

See her doctor: Several possibilities, including pregnancy problems such as a tubal/ectopic (out of place) pregnancy than could be serious. Might also be other problems such as hormonal imbalance (even polycystic ovarian syndrome--pcos). If you don't want to be pregnant, birth control is a good idea. If you do, then also should discuss. Best to check it out. Not likely due to surgical abortion. ...Read more

Does medical abortion cause infertility?  I am trying to get pregnant after an abortion 5 months ago and no results. I have really irregular periods

Rarely a problem: Most abortions (medical or surgical) don't cause future fertility problems, but if you have some pregnancy tissue left behind or an infection afterwards it can cause scarring inside your uterus (asherman's syndrome). A hysterosalpingogram (hsg) test will check for this as well as checking that your tubes are open. You should get checked to find out why you're irregular by a rei physician. ...Read more

Have irregular periods and used harmone tablets for regularity during 1st pregnancy. Should i take harmone tabs to conceive &protect 4m abortion again?

Hormones: I am not sure what hormone pills you took during your first pregnancy for regularity, when you are not even supposed to be bleeding during pregnancy. Hormone contraceptives (birth control pills) are taken to ensure regular periods but at the same time they protect you from getting pregnant, so if you plan to get pregnant, you need to stop them. Ovulation test may help determine when you ovulate. ...Read more

2. If irregularly irregular, then it is much harder and should be monitored with ultrasounds to help predict. Using lh tests are going to be very confusing and frustrating. ...Read more
