I had an abortion, can I have kids later?
Posted on: 09/12/2004
I was 5 weeks pregnant when i had an abortion but i'm kinda scared i might not have kids in the future i wanted to know if its possible they could have done something wrong.
There have been MANY studies looking to see if abortions change your chance of having healthy babies in the future. Every study says one or two abortions do NOT affect your future at all. Three or more abortions can change your future fertility. The most important thing a young woman can do to keep her fertility is use condoms with EVERYONE. Bacteria that is spread through intercourse is probably one of the leading causes of infertility. You can really protect your fertility by using condoms.
