Thanks for posting your query.
Going for an abortion at 16 weeks of pregnancy with previous two caesarean sections is risky for you. All the abortion inducing medicines will increase the risk of uterine rupture.
A procedure like D&C cannot be done at 16 weeks pregnancy as the baby is not so small in size.
It is best now to continue with your pregnancy and go for a caesarean section at full term. Since you already had previous two operations, this time too you will have to have an operative delivery.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
