We started having sex without using condoms

I have been with my boyfriend since past seven years and 3 years ago I start feeling dry and felt rubbed inside when we used condoms so occasionally say once in 3-4 months we start having sex without condoms and taking i-pill after sex.
But then I got pregnant even despite taking i-pill. I was a student then and have to go for an abortion using pill during first 3 weeks of my pregnancy. But after so long now again I took i-pill but I got pregnant. Now I am 3 weeks pregnant again and I can't keep the child. I again have to go through an abortion using pills but it is hurting me a lot.
I always want to have kids around me but I don't know whether I can ever have them in future when I can keep them due to these 2 abortions I had.

Editor's Comment

It is sad that you have had to choose abortion when you found it a painful decision. In terms of having children in the future, there is no direct evidence that the 2 abortions will affect your ability to have a child in the future. The problems that can affect fertility are infection of the womb or fallopian tubes following the procedure, particularly if the medical abortion was not complete. If you did not have any problems after your abortions then they should not have affected your ability to conceive. If you would like to talk to someone about your abortions or related issues, or you need some support, please call the national helpline 0300 4000 999, or log into Online advisor.for post abortion support.
