Pregnancy after abortion is not impossible. It just becomes a little more difficult. You need to follow certain steps that increase your chances of conceiving and maintaining your health till you deliver your baby.

Read on to learn the best way to become pregnant after having an abortion.

Talk to your doctor about when it is safe to start trying to get pregnant after having had an abortion. You should always rely on a doctor’s advice about your body.Make sure you had no damage done during your abortion. A legal abortion should pose no risk to future pregnancies, but if something such as a damaged cervix occurred, you may be less likely to conceive.
As long as her uterus wasnt scarred too bad then she should be able to get pregnant again. I have heard after multiple abortions the risk of scarring is greater and then that may result in it being difficult to carrying any new pregnancies to term. There is always a risk with a medical procedure like that. But a great majority of women who have had an abortion do go on to have healthy pregnancies in the future.

Get healthy. This means doing for your body pre-pregnancy what you would do if you were pregnant. Stop smoking, or cut down. Reduce your drinking habits and lower your caffeine intake. Stay active and increase your vitamin intake. Take prenatal vitamins.

Rest. Many doctors advice waiting 6 to 8 weeks after an abortion before trying to get pregnant again. During your resting period, practice safe sex while you let your body heal.

Start having sex often when your resting period is up. This may seem like an obvious step but it really is an important one. Without frequent sex, you are greatly lessening your chances of becoming pregnant.

Refraining from sexual activity for three to six days sometimes can actually increase sperm count, so although you should have sex often, you don’t have to worry if you have to take a break sometimes!

Buy an ovulation kit. These are generally inexpensive and available at most pharmacies and can be bought over-the-counter. Have sex during your ovulation time, which is generally 14 days after your last period. An ovulation kit can help you keep track of this.
