Your Future Fertility:
Center For Disease Control Study
The Center for Disease Control conducted an extensive review of studies worldwide about the effect of abortion on future childbearing. They concluded that vacuum aspiration does not pose a measurable risk to a woman's childbearing ability. Compared to women who carry their first pregnancy to term, women who terminate their first pregnancy by vacuum aspiration abortion are at no greater risk of infertility or ectopic pregnancy in the future.
What Can Go Wrong
Overall, the effects of one or even multiple vacuum aspiration abortions
on future childbearing are small. Very rarely, a woman may have a
severe complication that necessitates the removal of the uterus or a severe
untreated infection that may cause scarring in the tubes or uterus.
In general, complications from continuing a pregnancy to term are 10 times
more frequent than terminating the pregnancy by surgical abortion.
