    Hi, my girlfriend had an abortion using misoprostol about 6 months. She is now 6 weeks pregnant again and due to certain circumstance we are wondering if to have another abortion. Are there any negative effects that are associated with having another abortion using misoprostol in such a short time?

    Hello xta96,

    Normally, women who have had an abortion in a safe environment by a trained provider usually don’t have future fertility or health complications. Some research suggests that women who have multiple abortions may be slightly more likely to go through complications like low-birth weight babies or preterm birth.

    To prevent future unwanted pregnancies, I recommend that you use a birth control method. There are several contraception options, including birth control pills, the ring, the shot (Depo Provera), the patch, Implanon, condoms, and/or IUDs.

    Get more info by clicking the following link: Which Contraceptives Really Work? – Types of Birth Control Methods.

    I hope that I have been able to help,

    Best wishes
