Hi, I am 28 yrs old Female. I have no major health problem. I got married 3 yrs back. I have had 2 abortions, one after 6 months(in Nov 2007) and another one after another 10 more months(in Sept 2008). I do not take any contraceptive pills. We are only going for external contraception. Now we are planning to have a baby, and we have been off contraception since last 4 months and still we haven t got positive results. Do you think that previous 2 abortions could have affected my fertility? What measures do you suggest to take before getting pregnant? Also, what all should I have to have a healthy baby whenever I become pregnant?
