can i take the after morning after pill 2 days after i got an abortion
hi i got an abortion 2 days ago and had sex last night. stupid.. i know but i was wondering could i have done any damage to my re-productive organs and can i take the morning after pill without damaging myself? Also how many sets of morning after pills are you allowed to take before they become harmful.
i think you should be careful sweety and not jump into taking the pill before consulting a doc, because you dont want it to affect your future pregnancies,
you have to rememkber that your body is still recovering from the abortion and healing, i dont know how quick you can fall pregnanct but dont do anything unless your sure it is safe.
hi! like the above post you need to be careful. you are not suppose to have sex for 4-6 weeks after an abortion and especially not before you see the dr again. it can cause infections and PID. i am not trying to scare you but i just thought i would share it with you incase your dr did not tell you any of this. i would diffently ask you dr first about the pills. good luck
2 words - BIRTH CONTROL - The morning after pill does not count. Get on the pill please or something. Why is it so many innocent babies have to die each year or day from this??? It just makes me so sad to hear it. Go to Planned Parenthood if you need assistance - I don't think it is expensive to go there.
TWO WORDS..be responsible! If your having sex you need to be protected whether from STD or pregnancy! How can you have an abortion and jump right back into bed with someone without protection???? THINK ABOUT IT
Yeah I think you should talk to your doctor before taking this pill. I also wanted to remind you without using a condom getting preganant is gonna be the least of your worries. After what you've been through I don't want make things any worst for you but there are other things you should worry about when having sex, like getting a std. Honey I hope everything goes well for you and be strong.
The morning after pill is basically souped-up birth control pills. Taking them often shouldn't do damage, per se, but it'll sure throw your cycle completely out of whack. Why rely on the morning after pill when you can use reliable birth control - the pill, NuvaRing, condoms, etc.?
Anyway, I think the biggest concern now would be infection. I'd call your doctor and let him/her know what happened, ask his/her advice, and discuss your birth control options so that you don't have to go through this in the future :-)
i know, i know, this is HARD to hear isnt it? thank GOD this post is somewhat a rarity and we do not see it daily.
YES..............never mind this morning after pill. be responsible and use condoms and/or get on the pill! you seem VERY young. too young for intercourse thats for sure. a baby is a gift not something you just "rid" of. GRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
your only allowed to use the moring after pill once per cycle!!! but not after you've had an abortion. your body is still adjusting to having a baby then loosing one! you do seem quite young but thats no excuse. i don't mean to be nasty but you've most likely paid for an abortion then a few days later you go and have unprotected sex again! your much more fertlie after birth,m/c and abrotion. seriously use condoms or go on the pill. whats easier taking a pill once a day or changing dippers?? again not meaning to be nasty but this makes me angry i know you probably wasnt ready for a baby but you shouldnt have got pregnant, for women like me who find it had to get pregnant and stay pregnant its really upsetting to know people are having unprotected sex and not even caring that a poor innocent baby could come out of it and then thinking oh it don't matter i'll just go get rid of it! basically think with your head and listen to your heart not your bits!!!
also having sex so soon after an abotion could lead to infection that may stop from having kids anyway.
If you think you are mature enough to have sex than you need to grow up and learn how to protect yourself........ this is just rediculous. You go out an have an abortion and then turn right around and think you might be preggo again.....wake up! Protect yourself! there is no excuse not to there is plenty of places to turn to as mentioned above.
Talk with your doctor ASAP, not only about the risk of pregnancy, but also about potential infection and more importantly finding a reliable form of birth control. Oftentimes condoms alone are not reliable, so pairing them with another form of birth control would be ideal if you do not want to be pregnant right now.
I had an abortion a while back - the circumstances of which I don't want to discuss - but I can tell you that it was the biggest mistake of my life and I have to live with it everyday. Now, with that said, afterwards, I did have a surge in my sex drive - I think, due to hormones. However, I did NOT have sex - nor did I WANT to have sex after that.....it was inhumane - herded in and out like cattle. I suggest that you go to your local health department - where they will provide you with free condoms, and low or not cost birth control. You sound really young - please don't continue to disrespect yourself this way. You are worth waiting for if he really loves you....otherwise tell him to hit the road.....
first...the poor girl's hormones are everywhere...and I can see how a mistake could happen and she could make an unintelligent decision and make a mistake and have sex again. Having an abortion is extremely painful...no woman tries to get pregnant with the intention of having an abortion...and before you pass judgement think...it is true..."you never what it means to chose until you have walked a mile in her shoes" There is a lot more to abortion...and many many women regret the decision after...
I am sorry you have had to go through this...and I know how painful this can be for you...I suggest you and anyone else who is feeling pain from after an abortion visit this website http://www.passboards.org/ ...especially if you have questions about morning after pill ect...there you will get help without judgement.
it may be true that not everyone who is having heterosexual intercourse is emotionally "mature" enough for the responsibilities (this includes people of all ages by the way!!) however, if you're going to do it anyway, you must at least use protection. if you dig your heels in, he'll go along with it, trust me!!! i am puzzled that people advise young women to "stop having sex" -- are they just talking about intercourse? oral sex can't get you pregnant, and carries a notably lower risk of STD transmission. at any rate, there are lots of other things partners can do that don't involve intercourse; i think people place FAR too much significance on it. most women don't have orgasms that way anyhow, which leads me to suspect you are doing it mainly for your man. i think people of any ADULT age are capable of having a mutually fulfilling and intimate sex life. it does requires patience and sensitivity. this is of course the ideal situation. however, i am a realist and know that people are reckless, so i must emphasize the importance of taking the right precautions. you can heal from emotional scars but some STD's don't ever go away, and it's much harder to live with having an unwanted pregnancy or abortion -- that's not reversible!
