2 times abortion and scared of sex
Doc,
I had two abortions and they were just 5 months apart. When I had the first one, all was okay because I wanted to and basically felt like I had no choose. I pushed my boyfriend away because I had told him that I trust that he would never get me pregnant or sick. When I found out I was pregnant 5 months later, I just couldn't handle it. I could feel I was pregnant and whenI had to go through with the abortion I just could not handle it. I had told the doctors that it was my first abortion and they carried on with the procedure, but the thing is it was more painfull than before, because I didn't want to let this bbay go. After the whole ordeael was over, i couldn't help but cry. I am still trying to get rid off the bulging tummy and the stretch marks. But now that my boyfriend is back in my life, I can't help but be against the whole sex issue. I am scared doc. I have had problems with my vagina as i have dicharges, trushes, cuts and irritations. but what I want to know is, if I happen to to sleep with him, will I be causing more damage to my vagina.

reply soon pls.

Having sex wth your boyfriend should not cause damage to your vagina. What is important though is to use contraception. If you have thrush, this can be difficult to get rid of. You can check the archives for ways to prevent recurrent thrush. Your boyfriend should be treated as well.
If you are still having difficulty coming to terms with the abortion, some counselling might help.
