Having an abortion more than once discourages many women. But there is a good reason for you not to lose hope and believe that you will realize your dream of being a mother.
Miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of pregnancy before the 20th week. Many abortions occur because the fetus does not develop normally. Problems with the baby’s chromosomes are responsible for about 50 percent of early pregnancy loss. Most of these chromosome problems occur randomly as the embryo divides and grows, although it becomes more common as women age.
Factors that lead to an abortion
Sometimes a health condition, such as poorly controlled diabetes or a uterine problem, can lead to a miscarriage. However, the cause of the miscarriage is not always known.
About 8 to 20 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. The total number of actual abortions is probably higher because many women abort before they know they are pregnant. Once you feel emotionally and physically ready for pregnancy after a miscarriage, ask your healthcare provider for guidance. After a miscarriage, you may not need to wait long to get pregnant.
A study on abortions after two abortions has a 75% chance of a healthy pregnancy. In the case of a third abortion, there is eventually a 65% chance that you will have a healthy pregnancy.
If you are trying to get pregnant again after an abortion, here are some things to keep in mind.
Be healed emotionally
Disagreements can cause emotional turmoil in you. You will feel an acute sense of loss and experience a range of negative emotions. It is important for you to remember that you should not start trying to get pregnant again immediately. You can wait two or more menstrual periods before trying again.
After an abortion, your endometrial lining takes some time to fully recover. Your body needs to be ready to handle all the changes that pregnancy brings before you become pregnant.
Consult your doctor
If you think you are ready to get pregnant again, talk to your doctor. He may suggest a diet plan, tests, and treatments to restore your body to full health. /mommytobe
