Med. abortion May 29, doc says U.S. Is showing retained placental material, 11 weeks later and I need D&C, is this possible? Or is it something else?

TTC: Since you have been trying to conceive for 2 years (TTC), then it is worth the effort to make an appointment with a Fertility MD just to be certain that there is not an obvious problem post abortion. If not, at age 18, most women will in fact conceive with patience as long as their male contributor has a normal sperm analysis. ...Read more

Can your primary care physician give you the abortion pill?

Can your primary care physician give you the abortion pill?

Yes and no: A doctor can prescribe almost any approved medication, but a doctor wants to be sure he himself or another doctor nearby can take care of any follow-up needs or complications that might occur after a patient uses a medication. Also, doctors can choose which conditions they want to take care of, so many primary care doctors refer pregnancy-related issues to the nearby ob-gyn doctors. ...Read more
