Hi Doc

My wife and I got married recently. About 7 years ago we were forced to abort a baby ever since then we had sex on regular occassions and she just could not fall pregnant. Is it the case that the abortion could have resulted in her being infertile and is there any medical rescourse that one can take? Another thing we have noticed was that her monthly cycle has not been thesame eversince.

It is fairly unlikely that the abortion would have caused infertility unless there were complications. You should have tests to find out what the problem is. Common reasons for not falling pregnant are not ovulating, low sperm count or blocked tubes.
