Brief Answer:
Pregnancy unlikely; hormonal disturbance likely.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to us.

Return to normal ovulation takes at least 3 weeks after an abortion usually and therefore, intercourse within that span can be safe. Please remember that abstinence should be maintained for at least 2 weeks after the abortion because the healing tissues will be very vulnerable to infections and so need some time.

I feel that you may be having some hormonal imbalance post-abortally and your spotting is due to this. Yet, I would ask you to get a serum beta-hCG assay to exclude/confirm conception. This is to avoid any problem if you happened to conceive during your previous cycle.

The impact of the fibroids depends on their location and the amount of growth observed during pregnancy; that they cannot cause infertility has been already proved.

Please visit your gynecologist for further appraisal of the situation as you may need a physical exam and a sonogram. If pregnancy can be excluded, all you need is observation and nutritional supplementation.

Hope your query has been clarified. Please feel free to contact if you need more clarifications. I will be happy to help.
