Her hemoglobin in ~9 , do you suggest to carry with pregnancy or termination will be better option?
Answered by Dr. Nagamani Ng 16 minutes later
Brief Answer:
carry the pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
low hemoglobin is never the option to abort the pregnancy.

Low hemoglobin can be treated. And your wife's level is not very low, it's just borderline.

She can still carry the pregnancy by taking the good amount of iron and follic acid supplements.

Take care.

Hello, I m 26 and had a surgical abortion on December 5th 2013, I was 6 weeks pregnant. I had the contraceptive implant fitted at the same time. An ultrasound later that day showed some retained tissue and on the 7th I was given a half dose of the abortion pill to flush the remainder out. I had heavy bleeding and pain for a few days but it settled. However, 5 months down the line I am still having very spotty bleeding, no pain and very light but probably on average 4 days out of 7 every week. I know the implant can cause irregular bleeding but I also notice on a regular basis, tiny scraps of tissue after I pass urine, there is no blood, just a number of pieces of tissue ranging from 2-15mm long. Can you offer any advice? Thank you.

Hi Dr Jain
As we are getting quite old ( I am 36, my husband 45) when I got pregnant last time my partner and I decided against the baby and I ended up having a medical abortion middle of October. Now I regret this decision a lot and contemplate having another baby (we have one daughter age 6). My question is – when is it safe to conceive again? What is the time needed for the body to cleanse after the pill used in the womb during the medical abortion?
Thanks a lot for your help
Kind regards
