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 think i may have scarring from my past abortion in 2013, i’ve been trying to conceive but I cannot. Also, ever since the abortion i’ve been having these random muscle spasms in my upper body (ribcage and back), it feels like someone is inside me squeezing my organs for between 10 – 15 mins. every time. Ibuprofen hardly helps, at times i just have to scream it out. If damage was done to my cervix, whether it can be fixed or not, can i sue the clinic?

    I’ve had an abortion two weeks ago i never informed my boyfriend I was three months and just found out. Very unplanned wrong timing We had sex about two days after and a couple more times most of the time he ejaculated in me. How likely would it be for me to be pregnant already? I’m feeling regret and now I’m. Very upset I did this in the first place.

    On the 26 of Aug. I had an abortion. ( I drank the pill ) now my boyfriend and I are trying to have a baby. It’s been about a month since the unprotected sex, and ever since then we’ve had unprotected sex.
    On the 28th of this month I started to bleed, we both thought it was from the implantation. But I continue to bleed heavily today.

    I recently had to have an vacuum aspiration after my doctor discovered my pregnancy was not developing normally, I went in expecting to be 8 weeks and hear a heartbeat and there was only a gestational sac… anyway it has been two weeks and my partner and I have resumed having sex, because now we both REALLY want a baby. I have been reading that it is advised to wait 1 cycle so the uterine lining recovers, but it’s kind of too late for that now. can we have a healthy pregnancy now? how can I determine if I get pregnant?
