You have a difficult situation in front of you.I cannot tell you what to do but i can explain to you the medical implications. You had an abortion at 5 months gestation in july and now you're 1 month pregnant again.Frankly,this isnt a good a situation.
Taking a pregnancy so soon after a abortion isnt good.
Now that you are pregnant,you need to decide whether to continue or not.
First,if you wish to continue the pregnancy,there shouldnt be any problem if its monitored carefully.If you want to terminate then do so within the month. Termination after 12 weeks isnt recommended by the law or medically.
If you do through with the abortion,then you need to be informed about the possible complications like bleeding,difficulty in future conceptions, infection etc.
So now you need to decide if you want to terminate this pregnancy.

thanks for ur reply.. i will decide by the consequences if there is a problem after an abortion then i will not go through an abortion but if there is not any problem in future like conceiving again and any problem with my health in future then i will go through it.. so clarify my doubt should i go for an abortion or not..

There may be problems in the future like hemorrhage, infertility etc as i have mentioned above.Hence you need to decide whether you want this baby or not. You need to keep in mind what problems you may face in the future and take that risk accordingly.You should make an informed decision.
