Daily Health Tips: Can Abortion Stop Conception?


Q: Can abortion prevent me from conceiving?

A: Difficulty with conceiving in a woman could be due to problems with ovulation, problems with the uterus and cervix, blockage or damage of the fallopian tube, thyroid problems, cancer, previous instrumentation resulting to damage to the lining of the womb etc.
Previous instrumentation (like Dilatation and Curettage, D and C, where the procedure was too ‘vigorously’ done or even in situations where the placenta attached too deeply into the womb making it difficult to remove retained tissue) can result in a condition called Asherman’s syndrome which manifests as reduction in menstrual flow. Severe forms of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) can also cause Asherman’s Syndrome. For more on PID, please click on this link: https://chatwithdrketch.com/2014/09/22/daily-health-tips-what-is-pid/

In Asherman’s Syndrome, adhesions/scar tissue form inside the womb or moth of the womb, cervix. This leads to stocking together of the front and back walls of the womb. Asherman’s Syndrome can lead to infertility, miscarriages, growth retardation of babies in the womb, placental problems etc

So, yes…abortions may lead to infertility if instrumentation like D and C is involved.

Have a good night, people 😀
