Will having an abortion affect future pregnancies?


Answer by  Emr (698)

One of the main advantages of safe and legal abortion is that a skilled practitioner can perform the procedure safely. An abortion performed by a trained physician should have no lasting physical effects on the patient requesting the procedure.

Medical abortions do not decrease chances of getting pregnant later. Very rarely is there a chance of problems in subsequent prengnancies. Surgical abortions can cause a slight damage to the uterus or cervix (birth canal) and this can cause problems later; however this too is rare.

There is a good chance that an abortion will not have any affect on future pregnancies. However, there is potential for complications which could affect conceiving and/or sustaining future pregnancies.
