Getting Pregnant After Abortion

There are no medically proven reasons why you can't get pregnant after an abortion. Take these tips to heart, be patient, and soon you will be able to get pregnant again.

An abortion is a traumatic event in the life of a woman, regardless of the fact that she wants this to happen or it comes as a consequence of an accident. Many women think about the possibility of conceiving again after going through such an event, and, although it is a little more difficult, this is not completely impossible. Here are 5 pieces of advice on what to do to increase your chances of getting pregnant after abortion. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Talk to your physician

Asking your doctor for advice is among the most important things to do in such situations. This way, you will find out how safe it is to conceive after undergoing such a procedure. You will have to go through a thorough physical examination. This is very important in order to establish if the uterus or the cervix suffered any damages due to the abortion, and if those lesions lessen your chances to get pregnant.

Be healthy

The proper functioning of your reproductive system depends on your general state of health, and you must do everything that is in your power in order to improve it. Quitting bad habits like smoking or drinking is always a good idea, and cutting down the amount of caffeine-containing products that you consume also helps you to have a healthier body.

Time to recover

Offering your body the necessary period to recover after the trauma is another way to increase your chances of getting pregnant after abortion. The general recommended period of resting, before you start trying to conceive again, is of six to eight weeks. For a complete healing process, you must also take supplements containing minerals and vitamins.

Frequent sex

Having frequent sexual intercourse as soon as the resting period ends is the best way of getting pregnant quickly. However, the sperm count of your partner can be increased if the two of you take a break of 3 to 6 days after a period of intense sexual activity. Also, it is indicated to lie down for at least 20-25 minutes after a sexual intercourse, having the hips elevated, so that the sperm can reach the egg quickly.

Perfect timing

The perfect timing is an essential aspect when you want to conceive, and you must have sex around your ovulation period - that is usually set two weeks after the last period. In order to correctly establish it, it is advisable that you purchase an ovulation kit. This product does not cost much, you do not need a prescription in order to buy it, and it is very helpful in predicting with accuracy the moment of ovulation.

    I had medical abortion in August and it was successful with no complications, and the I had the next period on 14 of September and lasted until the 26th of September, few days back I had some pregnancy symptoms, I did a pregnancy test it was negative, I waited few days and did another pregnancy test and it was positive. I had to go through another medical abortion but this time it seems like there are complications and didn’t bleed at all it was not yet terminated i experienced few cramps, Back pain abdominal pain and today there was white liquid discharged from the vagina, I read on the internet that I might have infection, I dont know what to do, I live in abortion restricted country and I am so scared that I would need a surgical abortion because I know that I cant go on with my current pregnancy as the medicine probably caused Congenital Malformations, I really need advice on how to proceed, how to make sure if I have infection, and if I have infection can it be cured and how ?? do I need to go for a surgical abortion or I can try medical abortion again ??? please help me

    I’m 6 weeks pregnant and since I had taken a rubella vaccine just 10 days prior to the conception date I’m worried about the fetus being affected by the live virus. I’m thinking about an abortion and since I’m 30 yrs old, are there good chances of me getting pregnant again? Should I be worried about the rubella vaccine and go ahead for an abortion? Pls help me
