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.

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.
