Past history of abortion very rarely interferes with your fertility health. Most of the women who had undergone abortion have become pregnant once they were ready to become pregnant. Hence it is very important to understand when your body will be ready to take up the new challenge. Do not break yourself over an abortion as it has nothing to do with your future. Because you have conceived previous and this proves that you have the ability to conceive and an abortion is definitely not going to affect your ovulation in any way. If the abortion is not done in a safe manner, then it may pose a serious threat to your fertility. There are high levels of unsafe abortions happening every now and then in the country. Also, an ineffective abortion may cause damage to your uterus and also in certain cases lead to other acute illness.
If you had undergone an abortion lately and would like to try to get pregnant again, we would recommend you to visit an advanced fertility clinic to get yourself checked. This will help you make an informed decision in life. Post-abortion infections can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). This can also lead to blockage of fallopian tubes and thus can finally lead to ectopic pregnancy. This is a stage where the embryo starts to grow outside the uterus. It causes pain, bleeding and can rupture your uterus to cause severe internal bleeding as well.
Some of the symptoms of unhealthy abortion are scarring at top and inside of your uterus. These will cause absence of periods, very light period and abdominal pain. Visit an infertility specialist or a gynec surgeon if you are facing any of these symptoms. With an ultrasound scan, the doctor would be able to evaluate your cervical health. The most common procedure for people with these symptoms and proven ectopic pregnancy is hysteroscopy. In this procedure, the doctor will repair the damaged tissue in the cervix.
If you are someone who has undergone multiple abortions and have before pregnant now, there are high chances that you carry forward what is called a cervical weakness. This will lead to dilating of the cervix and can be cured by a stitch called cerclage to keep the cervix closed. The general timeline for couples with unprotected sex to become pregnant is one year. Most of the couples conceive during this period and if you are facing any difficult we advise you to visit your nearby fertility center. We would like to conclude this by saying that, everyone has their own biological clock and it ticks differently for different people. So know your clock and take decisions accordingly.
