hi, I had an abdominoplasty Tuesday last week. And I did a pregnancy test as I was due on the same day and it said negative. I did a test this week and it says I am pregnant. I want a termination. However, a few of the clinics I have spoken to are unwilling. I am moving fine and healing really well.
I am very worried because I do not want to have another child for many reasons.

Thanks for writing to us.

You should get an ultrasound done.

If it is an early pregnancy then you can take pills under your doctor's guidance and prescription. Today’s research indicates that a move toward individualizing the dosing of prescription agents is warranted and it can happen only after physical consultation / your doctor will know about these drugs.

Abdominoplasty carries a risk of infection, that's why they must have refused.

You must be taking a good course of antibiotics.

Get all the blood investigations done especially bleeding time and clotting time.

If you have any other queries you can ask.

Best wishes

Take care
