I had an abortion a few years ago. Now I want to start a family with my husband and he doesn’t know about my past. Will I be able to fall pregnant again?

Termination of pregnancy may leave you with emotional scars and feelings of guilt that will make it difficult to see yourself as a capable parent again. Forgiving yourself and understanding the reasons why it was necessary for you to make that decision is important. Physically, you may not be having any problem but need a medical doctor to check you so to confirm your body’s readiness to bear children.
