    Hi everyone

    Just a quick question the doctor told my partner that because I have had a abortion and a miscarriage that I less likely to carry is this true.

    1 abortion and 1 miscarriage shouldn't make any difference

    In fact as you've managed to get pregnant twice - I'd take that as a good sign

    No way....doctors are wrong all the time. I was told that i couldn concieve then 4 months later i was preggers.

    Loads of women have sufferd miscarriges and they go on to have healthy babies.

    So i wouldn't listen to this doctor he/she sounds like an ass tbh

    Thanks for your replies. I needed to put my mind at rest.

    I didn't think it was true. Only thing is I didn't get checked out after my abortion as there was a lot happening at the time. Would of this made a difference or caused the miscarriage.

    I wouldn't worry about it, stress won't help you conceive at all, and many women have situations like yours and conceive just fine :hug:

    I wouldn't worry at all. I'm sure you will carry a healthy baby. As said in previous posts, doctors are always wrong. Good Luck.

    I just remembered something too - just to reassure - a friend of mine had an abortion, then lost a child. She's just produced number 4 in 6 years :shock:

    so I wouldn't worry :wink:
