I wasn't sure if I was pregnant. I only suspected pregnancy, and then I used cytotec. I bleeded for a week and some days, I became scared and went to a family Doctor who injected me and then it stopped. The next moth I realised that my cycle extended from a 24days cycle to 28 days nd became very painful. Its a year now after marriage, can't get pregnant. Has it affected my tubes? Pls help me

Dear Juliet, I guess you know by now that you probably shouldn't have taken the cytotec if you weren't sure if you were pregnant. I'm so glad that you were able to get the bleeding stopped. So many women are having these problems when taking an abortion pill. What kind of pain are you having during your period? You will have to talk to your doctor about this and see if you can get help. Yes, sometimes when you have an abortion, you could have problems getting pregnant. And maybe you were not pregnant at all and maybe you have a fertility problem and you didn't know it. Do you have any religious beliefs to help you during this stressful time? Please email me at CHERYL51@aol.com so we can talk more.
