I had an abortion 3 months ago and I've had two

Resolved Question:

Hello,
I had an abortion 3 months ago and I've had two periods. I'm now 12 days late and having hot flushes. I'm worried in case I have damage my body and won't be able to have babies. I am 37 years of age. Could this have triggered an early menopause? will I be able to have babies?
I had a non fasting blood test and everything came normal.
Thanks for your answer.

Hi. This doesn't sound like early menopause at all.

There is the possibility of pregnancy, though, unless you're on birth control pills or haven't had recent unprotected sex.

Other possibilities would be a thyroid problem or other hormonal fluxes.

I would suggest you take a pregnancy test and if that's negative see a doctor for some blood work.

I see no reason to think you've damaged your body and you can still get pregnant
