Infertility a state of not been able to be pregnant after having unprotected sexual intercourse with the opposite sex for up to six months to one year. It can be either Primary Infertility, (that is when a woman has never fallen pregnant) or Secondary Infertility (woman who has had at least one successful pregnancy in the past).
Infertility should not be seen as a medical condition for women alone. Men can be infertile too. Men and women are equally likely to have fertility problems. Women who are able to conceive but not carry a pregnancy to term may also be diagnosed with infertility.
Can Abortion cause Infertility in A woman?
When a couple finds it difficult to conceive, many point accusing fingers at the Female Gender. Some even speculate about her having a damaged womb due to imaginary abortions she may have had in the past. Abortion can mean a planned termination of a pregnancy or a pregnancy that ends in miscarriage. Having an abortion in the past does not usually affect your ability to get pregnant at a later time except a complication occurred which might be a cause for an alarm.
