Scheduled for abortion of 10.5 weeks pregnancy. Will it cause damage to the uterus or effect future pregnancy ?

hi, i m currently 10.5 weeks pregnant and am scheduled for an abortion (electric vacuum aspiration) next week. i m so sad and worried about this. i do not want the abortion because of fear, but my partner has left me, and i am already a single mother, so i have to do this. i m so scared that the abortion will leave me infertile or damage my uterus (asherman s syndrome ) or cervix in future pregnancies. i m worried that my uterus will not shrink back to it s original size since i m already showing a bit (this is my second pregnancy) and will not be breastfeeding after the procedure. thoughts?

Thank you for getting in touch with us. From what I see, you are planning to undergo an abortion in the next few days. Abortion is tough not only physically but also emotionally for the patient. Earlier, abortion procedure used to be a high risk procedure and there were many complications associated with it. But with advent of modern medical science, the risks have been cut out and patients rarely experience any complications. All the complications that you mentioned (Asherman syndrome, infertility etc) can be caused by abortion procedures but the risk is not high. We would recommend you to get in touch with your Doctor and he would be able to clear out all other doubts. If you have any other question for us, please let us know
