Had a surgical abortion at 13 wks., no complications. Had ectopic 6 mo later. Is there a link?

I had a surgical abortion on Friday and that same night I had unprotected sex. Is it possible for me to start ovulating that quickly?

I had a surgical abortion on Friday and that same night I had unprotected sex. Is it possible for me to start ovulating that quickly?

No, but.....: No it is not possible to ovulate that quickly. REALLY! The bleeding from the abortion did not deter you from having sex the same night? Moreover, you risked pelvic infection from the previously opened cervix to the intrauterine cavity. It might be time to realize that abortion is NOT a contraceptive method and consider a "real" contraceptive method going forward. ...Read more

The ultrasonographer is trained to gather images with the best quality possible. Depending on what was seen, sometimes a view through the side or flank is necessary for best images. The ovaries sometimes are best seen from the side. ...Read more
