Dear Ma-Zet

In general if the abortions were done in a clinic environment by an experienced practitioner then there should be no negative impact on fertility. However if no d+c’s were done or there was a post abortal infection then the likelihood of tubal damage should be considered. If you are having difficulty in conceiving I suggest that you have your tubal patency checked. This can be done by means of a simple x-ray called an HSG (hysterosalpingogram) or by means of minimally invasive surgery such as a laparoscopy.

Just ignore those other judgmental respondents. This site is supposed to be used for the sharing of advice and information, not for personal gripes. We sympathise with those having difficulties conceiving, but please don't take out your frustrations on others who have nothing to do with your situation. If you have no constructive advice to offer, just shut up and leave your emotional baggage & righteousness at home!

Ma-zet, there shouldn't be any problems with your fertility if your 2 abortions were carried out properly. Some products of conception can get left behind if the abortion was not done correctly, which might lead to complications. See a gynae for a scan of your womb and ovaries and also have him check if you haven't developed endometriosis since then.

Good luck!

I can't believe u had 2 abortions, my gosh. I think that one is all up to God, if u will ever have a chance to have another baby. U know it has really been difficult for me to concieve and I wish to get a baby one day and you had that chance 3 times and 2 times u flushed it down, that chance to concieve.

I don't understand what help u are requesting u have your answers??????????
