Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you are having an issue with your doctor
it sounds like you may need to find a new gyn doctor who you can better work with
your gyn doctor is having you wait after the uterine ultrasound to start birth control pills to make sure the products of conception are all out of your uterus
he doesn't want you to start the birth control pills until after he checks the uterus.
if there is still products of conception in the uterus, then he may have to do a D&C procedure to get it out
let me know if you have questions.
what other questions do you have?
I don't agree with his policy either.
you can start birth control pills immediately after an abortion to make sure you are not pregnant, if you can't use condoms.
you are correct there are many sites which say this
some doctors are old fashioned and want to be in control of everything, check the ultrasound and then have you start.
if you need a D&C, you can still be on the pill and get a D&C.
if you need to be sexually active soon, then go on the pill now.
you are welcome
