Hi, I was diagnosed with endometriosis when I was 18 years old
after suffering with the symptoms for a couple of years. At 20 I had a
surgical abortion (11 weeks). I was in an abusive relationship and not in a
good place mentally or physically so it was for the best. My question is,
have I affected my chances at getting pregnant again? As I am in a loving,
committed relationship now and would love to have a baby in the not too
distant future. Thank you :)


  • No, your fertility shouldn't be affected by having had a surgical abortion. Unless you developed a bad infection (known as pelvic inflammatory disease) afterwards which can sometimes cause some scarring. 

    If you're having a regular cycle and your periods aren't excessively painful, everything should be fine. 

    Good luck!
