Worried about conceiving after abortion?

Worried about conceiving after abortion?

Do not worry! Yes, You can get pregnant after having had an abortion in the past!

An abortion is the complete removal of an embryo or fetus from the uterus, resulting in its death. Abortion is usually categorized as a Medical Abortion or a Surgical Abortion.

Taking decision whether or not to terminate pregnancy, is definitely one of the toughest decision both emotionally and physically. Some important things need to be factored in during the decision making process; most importantly, the problems or risks that you could face in future, when you would be prepared for conceiving again.

The risks after an abortion will be different for each woman. Generally, abortion isn’t considered to be the origin of fertility issues or complications in later pregnancies; still there are some side effects or risks that you must be aware of:

  • Vaginal bleeding at some point in early pregnancy, low birth weight, preterm birth, and placenta problems.
  • Abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, spotting. One can experience these for as long as 2 to 4 weeks following abortion.
  • Serious complications such as heavy or continual bleeding, infection, damage to the cervix, uterus, or even death.

During a medical abortion, medicines are taken in early pregnancy to abort the fetus; whereas, in a surgical abortion, the fetus is separated from the uterus usually with a vacuum apparatus or a spoon shaped apparatus with a sharp edge. In rare cases, an abortion can damage or weaken the cervix or uterus. This leads to the opening of cervix prematurely in a future pregnancy. The women, who have had many surgical abortions, are most likely to be affected in future.

You should talk to your doctor who will carry out your abortion to understand possible problems or risks and will help you to have a healthy pregnancy in future.
