Can waist pain after an abortion be due to nerve injury?

hi my girlfriend undertook abortion last year and upon recovery, she complains of piercing pain just above her waist on the left side. she told me that during the process, she felt as if the doctor tore a nerve and i cant dig deep when having sex and she gets cautious in other styles like dog style. am wondering what that might indicate since it is a problem that she got after that procedure. please help.

Hi,.
This is just temporary pain and nothing to do with nerve injury. Don't worry about it. This pain is related to uterine contractions.
