Question
I had an abortion 6 weeks ago .. I had unprotected sex about 3 weeks after on three different occasions. I used the morning after pill on the 3 occasions. I used the morning after pill though Late (60 hours after on one occasion). I did a home test today and I it showed that I was clearly pregnant. Do I go to the Clinic for a blood test or scan?.. Am I really pregnant again or just hormones. I aborted when I was Five weeks along.

Answer
Hello, dotun aina,

What clinic do you propose going to? The one where they did your abortion? I would sure stay away from THAT place! They don't care about you or your health, or they would never have provided you with an abortion in the first place. Abortion is bad medicine, and it's unethical. Abortion is always dangerous, and can do severe damage to a woman's body, AND to her future children. The medical consequences can last for many years. You deserve better.

It is entirely possible you are pregnant again. But you can't keep having abortions.

I will tell you how you can get better help, to take an action that will be much healthier and less emotionally disturbing. If you would like a pregnancy test, you can probably get one by going to an organization that helps pregnant women.

There are three locations I was able to find, but there may be others. Ask the one closest to you.

Expertise

I can help women with the consideration of their decision, and with resources, and I can share my own experiences as the mother of seven and grandmother of eleven. My approach is to show love and concern, and help women work through the issues, emotional, spiritual, practical. I also help women deal with boyfriend and family issues. I am not a doctor, but I have done extensive medical research, so I may be able to help with information. I am female. When you write, if you are or were pregnant, please tell me how far along you were or are, and if you have had an abortion, please tell me what kind. Thank you.

Experience

I have been working with women who are considering abortion for several years. I also work with women who have had abortions. Our family has also experienced adoption, so I can talk about that as well.

Education/Credentials
I am mostly self-taught. I also studied midwifery for awhile. I have spent years doing research on this topic. In fact, I have been doing research and working in this area since the early 1970's. I have been helping women online for a few years, under the guidance of a woman who was formally training in counseling.
