Will previous termination of pregnancy with abortive pills further chances of pregnancy?
User rating for this question
Hi Doctor, Two years back I terminated my 6 weeks pregnancy at home using abortive pills with out any doctor consultation. I heard that when we use abortive pills there still remains some pieces of embryo, which may lead to some serious problems. It's almost 3 years now, and I'm fine with regular periods asusual. Is the thing I heard is true? Kindly let me know coz me and my husband planning for a child. Is there any problem for my next pregnancy? Hope you will defenitely help...

Brief Answer: sometimes true Detailed Answer: Hello, After any termination of pregnancy, sometimes there may be a complication where the abortion is incomplete, where some remnants of conceptions remain. In such a case, a surgical evacuation is done. In your case, i dont think you need to worry. If you had any remnants left after the abortion, you wouldnt be having regular periods the last 2 years. Repeated abortions sometimes have this complication. Since you have just done this once few years ago, i believe you should be safe. Go ahead and plan your pregnancy. Start folic acid tablets once daily.

Brief Answer: bleeding Detailed Answer: If there is an incomplete abortion and remnants of conception are seen on ultrasound there will be bleeding , irregular or continuous with pain on and off and chances of infection . You had mentioned you had regular cycles after the termination so i don't expect that to be a problem .
