Depends on state: Usually abortions can be carried out before 16-20 weeks gestation (time after last menstrual period).

Depends on reason: There appears to be no set gestational age limit for having an abortion in maryland. An internet search shows an abortion is legal if done before the fetus is viable (usually before 24 wks), or at anytime when abortion is necessary to protect the life or health of the woman, or if the fetus has a serious genetic defect or abnormality. If needed, one can ask a local maryland ob-gyn to confirm this. ...Read more

When is the safe and best time to get pregnant again after an abortion?

When is the safe and best time to get pregnant again after an abortion?

As soon as UR ready!: Older dictum was to wait for 3-6 months after a miscarriage before resuming sexual activity. More recent studies show that women who wait have lower fertility rates than women who don't. So, if you are trying to get pregnant, you can determine when you feel ready to resume sexual activity. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily to prevent preterm birth, neural tube and cardiac anomalies in your offspring! ...Read more

If someone got an abortion is it possible for that person to have pregnancy complications in the future?

If someone got an abortion is it possible for that person to have pregnancy complications in the future?

Very Unlikely: Modern abortion care does not effect a womans ability to conceive or carry a pregnancy. Some doctors still believe that abortions in the presence of infection may lead to scar tissue in the uterus, but today this is so rare it is almost non-existant. Most complicated pregnancies have to do with prematurity or blood pressure problems which have nothing to do with a prior abortion. ...Read more

Is it possible to aquire an order for blood tests like the elisa that allow me to go to facilitys of my choosing, and is it possible to get an order like that which does not expire after using?

Is it possible to aquire an order for blood tests like the elisa that allow me to go to facilitys  of my choosing, and is it possible to get an order like that which does not expire after using?

It depends.: Are you asking if we can give you this order? Then the answer is no, not here on this forum. However, you don't need an order to be tested for HIV. Go to your local health department and you can be checked for it at minimal to no cost. IF you are worried you have HIV, then get checked for other sexually transmitted diseases and for hepatitis B and possibly C as well, while you are at it. ...Read more

Please can you tell me if there is the medicine to get rid of a pregnancy without an abortion? Thank you

Pregnancy: The morning after pill or an early triple dose of birth control pills soon after intercourse prevents pregnancy, but ending an established pregnancy is considered abortion. Different methods include mefipristone, Methotrexate (which stops the fetus from developing but then the contents must still be evacuated) and vacuum extraction. The american college of OB gyn (acog)faqs compare methods. ...Read more

I've had IVF once and it's been successful, if i wanted to do it again, is there a treatment you can have which would determine the sex if your baby?

I've had IVF once and it's been successful, if i wanted to do it again, is there a treatment you can have which would determine the sex if your baby?

IVF with PGD: For couples with 1 or more child in vitro fertilization with preimplantation genetic diagnosis (pgd) is a good option for family balancing. Not all fertility clinics offer pgd for non-medical reasons. I don't recommend it for a first pregnancy. Microsort, a sperm sorting technology, is no longer available in the usa. Pgd for the baby's gender is not offered in the uk, but you can come to the usa. ...Read more

What to do if i want to be an obstetrician when I am older but i also want to care for the babies, in the nursery after birth. What is that called?

What to do if i want to be an obstetrician when I am older but i also want to care for the babies, in the nursery after birth. What is that called?

Confusion: I'm afraid the 5 years it takes you to be an obgyn added to the 3 or more needed to be a pediatrician would make you an oddity. The shorter pathway would be to find a family practice residency that prepared you for this sort of practice in a smaller town setting. The bigger town you work in the more you must narrow your work field. ...Read more
