Abortion done at 4 months, what was the method used?

User :   Right away we started to plan for a baby
User :   we tried till december but her period appeared again
User :   so i asked my wife to come for a checkup
User :   at this point she told me that she has done an abortion five years back
Doctor :   Ok

User :   I think it was surgical
Doctor :  
This should not affect the current conception
Doctor :  
Usually care would be taken while doing that
Doctor :  
For now, what should be done
Doctor :  
is a complete gynec workup
Doctor :  
including tests for ovulation
Doctor :  
and also a transvaginal ultrasound
Doctor :  
Did she meet the gynec?
User :   U mean the one who has done the abortion?
Doctor :  
No not that
Doctor :

Doctor :  
Ok, it need not be made public
User :   and if we go then my mom will know anyways
Doctor :   Why?
User :   I stay in Delhi and she is in Bangalore with my parents
Doctor :   Ok

User :   One querry
Doctor :  
No she can go for a gynec examination
Doctor :  
but not with your mother
Doctor :  
Sure proceed
User :   By physical examination is it possible for a gynec to ascertain that she has done an abortion
Doctor :   No it is not definitive

User :   By any test?
Doctor :   No, it is not that absolute

Doctor :   If you ask in that direction specifically, then the gynec would be able to tell you

Doctor :  
with examination in more detail
Doctor :   But it is not a 100% think

User :   ok
Doctor :  
thing
Doctor :  
I hope you are not affected by your wife's history

User :   Any problem can occur to her reproductive organ with this abortion
Doctor :   No, if done properly, there wont be any problem

Doctor :  
For infertility I would suggest you to accompany your wife
Doctor :  
You should also consult a urologist
User :   it was a shock to me as she has discussed it with me after 3 months after marriage\
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
You should excuse her
Doctor :  
Thats what I can tell
User :   but anyways past is past for me
Doctor :  
Thats good
Doctor :  
Since she has conceived previously
Doctor :  
you should also get examined once
Doctor :  
and get a semen analysis done
User :   can you please suggest me some doctor in noida
Doctor :  
Sure
Doctor :  
I shall give you the link
User :   ok
User :   I definately want to do mine first
User :   and also want to avoid her meeting a gynec on the first go
Doctor :   It would be better if you can go to Delhi

User :   because she is having lot of suicidal tendencies
Doctor :  
You can consult Dr.Chandan Chowdhary
Doctor :  
for Urology opinion
User :   Whats his contact number
User :   is it for my checkup?
Doctor :   I shall provide you

Doctor :  
Just a minute
Doctor :

Doctor :  
Tell him that you have come through healthcaremagic
User :   thanks doctor
User :   I need a gynec also for my wife
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
I shall give the details
User :   who can handle this issue with care
Doctor :  
In bangalore right
User :   no in delhi
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   I will meet her first and then without discussing my wife's past she can examine her
Doctor :   Rather you can consult our Gynecologist on panel over phone

Doctor :  
It can be done with a prefixed appointment
Doctor :  
either via mail or phone
Doctor :  
Is that fine with you?
User :   But my wife need to be examined i suppose
Doctor :   Dr.Chethna Jain, she is in Gurgaon

Doctor :  
Yes, for now I mean to say
Doctor :  
For you to discuss with the gynec
Doctor :  
before going there
User :   Its ok
Doctor :   WWW.WWWW.WW
Doctor :   WWW.WWWW.WW User :   Dr.Chandan's contact no. is not there on the link?
Doctor :   Yes, contact no. is not given in that
Doctor :  
That is done via conference from our phone
Doctor :  
It is a seperate service like live chat
User :   ok
User :   One more querry
Doctor :   Sure

Doctor :  
Proceed with it
User :   When we have intercourse most of the time all the sperms are coming out.
Doctor :   Meaning, the semen is coming out

User :   Yes
Doctor :  
It should be deposited in the genital tract of your wife
Doctor :  
that is very important
Doctor :  
It could happen due to faulty technique
User :   But sometimes its going in
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
It should not be sometimes
User :   Is it because her cervix is not opening properly
Doctor :   No that wont be the reason
Doctor :  
this is mainly due to faulty technique
Doctor :  
which both the gynec and the Urologist can guide you
User :   Ok
User :   Also one thing my wife avoids to come to gynec with me
Doctor :   You should console and provide her support

Doctor :  
that would be fine I guess
Doctor :  
Tell that the doctor has asked both of us to come together
User :   she says they will ask her many question which she is not comfortable of replying
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
Tell her that they have to give the details to the doctor in order to get help from the doc
User :   so she wants to go to doctor who has done her abortion
Doctor :   If she is also accessible, then fine

User :   but its not feasible for me as the doctor is in hyderabad
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
Then that should be ruled out
Doctor :  
as it requires regular check ups
User :   and i personally think doctor should be in my city
Doctor :   Thats right

Doctor :  
Tell your wife the same thing
Doctor :  
and console her and take her to your local doctor
User :   thanks
Doctor :   Is there any thing else I can help you with?

User :   one more thing
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :  
Proceed with it
User :   ok
User :   thank you sir
Doctor :   You said one more query

Doctor :   It seems you have moved out of the chat window. Please log in back if you have medical queries.
