Do abortions affect later pregnancies?


I had a termination at 17, I didn't get pregnant for another 2 and a half years, even though I'd been having unprotected sex (stupid, obviously but looking back I was grieving for the baby I'd terminated), I thought I couldn't have any kids due to the fact I'd had a termination, obviously I could, I've since had two girls and I'm currently pregnant with twins! I think a miscarriage is absolutely nothing to do with the terminations you've had, it's just that psychologically your blaming yourself, talk to someone who can help, maybe a counsellor or your doctor! Take Care!


no, I had an abortion 2 years ago multiple doctors had told me i wouldn't be able to get pregnant so my b/f and i didn't use any type of protection and i got pregnant and i was so not ready!!! after wards i was sad because what if i couldn't get pregnant again so i talk to my doctor and found that even though my chances in the beginning were not that high that the abortion wouldn't lower my chances. and now i am pregnant with no complications thus far at 7wks. I've read that after a m/c you can start to try again after one month, if you and your b/f want to try again Also talk with your doctor to see if there is anything he/she thinks would help you conceive or have a non complicated pregnancy Best Wishes


Previous abortions do somewhat raise the risk of second trimester miscarriages related to cervical function. Google "incompetent cervix" for further info on that, but I don't believe there's any increased risk with first trimester miscariage. I'm very sorry for your loss, and I wouldn't think it related to the earlier abortions.


No, it is not related at all. Sorry to hear you had a miscarriage. Remember that 1 in 5 pregancies will miscarry - it was nothing to do with your previous abortion.


It is highly unlikely to be related. You might consider getting a second opinion, but I say just keep trying! When it is time, it will happen for ya. Good luck :) @
