Does multiple abortion affect fertility?

I had an abortion 4 times will I be able to conceive any baby again???

Editor's Comment

There are certain risks involved with multiple abortions, and late miscarriage is one of those risks as the cervix can become weak after a number of abortions. Normally conception is not affected unless you have had infections following the abortion, but being able to carry the pregnancy until it is viable is the issue. If you would like to talk this through with a trained practitioner please contact CareConfidential on 0300 4000 999, log onto Online advisor, or contact a centre in your area.
