Baby Trouble
An_251046 posted:
My Fiancee and I have been trying to conceive a baby since December but now he is gone on a deployment and we really wanted me to be pregnant, but i just got my period (he's heart broken).... So im wondering, I had an Abortion 3 years ago due to the fact that i wasnt Financially stable and was living out of my car (didnt want to raise a baby that way) so im not sure if the abortion could have anything to do with my infertility.... Help?

Oh, I'm so sorry things didn't turn out the way you planned with starting a family. But, don't give up hope! Sometimes it just takes time to get pregnant. But, if you're really concerned, it never hurts to talk with your doctor and let him know your questions. I'm sure he or she could let you know whether this is something to be concerned about or not. Lastly, I'm not sure if this will be helpful or not, but I've come across some post-abortion material while working at Focus on the Family on this website: . Maybe it will be informative? Just a thought. In the meantime, I'll be praying for you and your husband, and that you'll be able to start a family soon!
