Menstruasie
Dokter,

Wat is die kans om swanger te raak terwyl jy op jou period is? En graag iets wat ek ook wil weet, ek wil graag swanger raak maar sukkel. Ek is nou al vir 11 jaar saam met my vriend en ek het eenkeer swanger geraak maar moes gegaan het vir n aborsie. Kan dit enige invloed wees daarop dat ek sukkel om swanger te raak. Dit is nou al amper 5 jaar daarna en ek is nou 28. Ek is baie bekommerd dat ek nie kan swanger raak nie. Ek het vir n skraap gegaan so 2 jaar terug en my genikeloog se daar is niks fout nie, maar hoekom sukkel ek dan?

The chances of falling pregnant if you have sex during a period are very small, though not impossible.
Unless you had complications from your abortion, it is unlikely that this will be influencing your ability to conceive.
The commonest reasons for not falling pregnant are not ovulating, blocked tubes or a low sperm count in your partner. These need special tests and cannot be determined just by examining you. I would suggest that you see a gynaecologist for further investigation.
