Dear Mbali

If the abortion has not caused any damage to the pelvic organs, your chances of conception should be good. I suggest good diabetic control, preconception counselling and if your partner is HIV negative, to go for Intra-uterine insemination (IUI), to prevent transmission. In addition your CD4 count must be high and viral load <100.
