Can Abortion Cause Infertility?
My beautiful sexy girl, the answer to this question is a cautious No.
You would not become infertile because of having an abortion sweetie, and that is a very true statement.
Why a cautious no?
Baby, it depends on where, how, and who is doing the abortion on you honey.
There is a difference in an abortion that is being done in the high end, Nairobi Hospital, and one that takes place in a tiny tin shack in Kawangware slums.
Can Abortion Cause Infertility? – The upshot:
There is always a risk of developing a womb infection during an abortion.
A womb infection (gotten during an abortion procedure) could easily render you infertile if not discovered and treated on time.
The truth my adorable lady is; abortions, especially those done in the backstreet with dirty, crude tools, and in inhigienic environments could cause womb infections that lead to infertility.
Thus, stay safe, using protection during sex and if he can’t use a condom, he is not worth of you, nor your time. You are a beautiful soul, don’t waste, or get yourself in trouble!
Can you become infertile after an abortion?
It depends on how you are having an abortion
. If you are having an abortion in a hospital where the availability of qualified personnel and proper medical equipment is assured, you safe.
You will not become infertile after the abortion.
Backstreet abortions are most likely to lead to infertility because they are not safe, and are carried out by dirty, untrained street people, using crude tools.
What is a womb infection?
A womb infection is a disease commonly known as PID, i.e., pelvic inflammatory disease. You get PID when a womb infection spreads to your fallopian tubes and ovaries.
Why does a womb infection cause infertility?
When you have PID, you cannot get pregnant because the egg will always implant itself outside the womb. An egg cannot develop outside the womb hence infertility.
What are the symptoms of womb infection?
You should go for a womb check up after an abortion to make sure everything is okay. This is the right thing to do.
Because you might never realize you have an infected womb until it is very late in life. You might never experience the symptoms listed below despite having PID.
Otherwise, here are some of the symptoms you may (or may not) experience in case of a womb infection:
- Severe abdominal pains
- Fever (or high temperature)
- A smelly vaginal discharge
- Painful urination
- Painful intercourse
- Abnormal uterine bleeding
You may never experience the above womb infection symptoms after an abortion but that does not mean you are safe.
You could have an infected womb but you will never know until you try to get pregnant.
Can pelvic inflammatory disease be treated?
My dear beautiful girl, I know you want to ask this question. Can pelvic inflammatory disease be treated?
Can PID be cured?
Yes, if PID is diagnosed early, it can be treated. However, treatment won’t undo any damages that has already happened to your reproductive system. The longer you wait to get treatment, the more likely you will have complications from PID.”https://www.cdc.gov/std/pid/stdfact-pid.htm
