Hello and welcome,
Please do not worry so much.
The post abortion check up is important as some women may have an incomplete abortion
and may have continued bleeding or infection [ pus discharge]. This does not happen in every woman, but if it happens it is important to detect it early and hence the need for the checkup.
If you did not return to the doctor most likely you did not have any problem. Irregular periods
are not attributable to abortion, so most likely you did not have a complication.
It will not have any effect on your future childbearing potential. So please do not worry. The doctor will most likely have forgotten the follow up visit. We tend to remember patients and diagnosis, beyond that it is difficult to remember details of each and every patient as there are so many.
If you go to a new gynecologist, there are certain changes that may happen to the cervix
after and abortion sometimes. They may not happen every time. So maybe they may ask you about it. It is best not to hide things from your doctor as it affects treatment outcome. So I suggest that you discuss this with your doctor rather than hide it. I am sure the doctor will understand.
Do not worry. Nothing will happen to you.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
Feel free to ask any more questions that you may have.
