At New York OB/GYN Associates™ our primary goal is to make sure that you make the best possible decision when it comes to an abortion. We are also available to answer any of the questions you may have directly. Please contact us at 1(888) 525-CARE(2273) if you would like to speak with an abortion specialist about any of your questions.

I had an abortion over 30 days ago and I still have not gotten my period. Should I be worried?

You should not be worried, it is normal to have irregular periods after ending a pregnancy. In some cases menses does not come back for six to eight weeks after an abortion. If you do not get your period after two months schedule an evaluation with one of our board certified OB/GYN’s and we will make sure everything is normal.


When your period does not return the only thing to be concerned about is a failed abortion or a new pregnancy. However, since we require a check up after the abortion you can be reassured that your abortion was successful. After an abortion, pregnancy tests can indicate positive for three to four weeks. Therefore, it is difficult to tell if you are pregnant. If you suspect you are pregnant, please call New York OB/GYN Associates™ to make an appointment. We will be happy to confirm whether you are pregnant or not.

 

I have been bleeding for a month after a surgical abortion. Is that normal?


It is typical to bleed after a non-surgical abortion. However you should not continue to bleed for longer than a month. If you are bleeding for longer than a month please call our office and schedule an appointment with one of our board certified OB/GYNs. The only concern with bleeding for a month or longer is that there is a possibility of having retained tissue. Other symptoms of retained tissue involves on and off abdominal cramping, passing clots, or a discharge with a foul odor. Retained tissue does is not harmful to the uterus. However, it is possible that you will need a repeat procedure. If this is the case we will perform the procedure again free of charge.

 

Can I get pregnant after an abortion?

Yes, you can get pregnant after an abortion. In fact, women can get pregnant within weeks after an abortion, therefore, it is important to use an effective method of birth control in order to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. It is crucial to know that ovulation can occur at any time, even while you are bleeding. If you DO want to get pregnant and you have had an Abortion Pill/RU-486 or the Aspiration Procedure, you can conceive right away. 

 

How can I be sure if I am pregnant again after an abortion?

Pregnancy test often stay positive for a three to four weeks after an abortion. Therefore it is hard to tell if you are pregnant. The best way to be sure if you are pregnant is to make an appointment with our office and have a board certified OB/GYN confirm your pregnancy with an ultrasound and specialized blood test.

 

I am pregnant right after an abortion. Should I be worried?

There are no concerns about either ending the new pregnancy or continuing the new pregnancy. If you choose to terminate the pregnancy having a second abortion is completely safe. There is no research that repeat abortions cause any problems for a woman’s future fertility. Additionally, if you decide to continue the pregnancy there is no need to be concerned. If your uterus is ready to conceive then it is also ready to carry the pregnancy.
