Could I get pregnant after an abortion and before I have my first period?

Yes, it is possible to get pregnant during the first menstrual cycle after an abortion. The ovulatory period will be difficult to calculate and an ovulation test should be used for this purpose. However, it is not advisable to seek pregnancy so soon because the body has not yet recovered and it is possible that the woman's mood may not have recovered either.
