An abortion is the termination of a pregnancy usually prior to 20 weeks of the pregnancy. There are several kinds of abortion, medical and surgical.
Medical and surgical abortion
A termination of pregnancy can be done with medication very early in pregnancy, usually within weeks after conception. Beyond on the first few weeks, a surgical abortion is required to end a pregnancy.
Abortions and Fertility Problems
Many studies have shown that there are no connections between a successful and safe and uncomplicated abortion and subsequent fertility issues. Women who have had an abortion can usually get pregnant without problems.
