Can someone get pregnant immediately after abortion?

Customer Question

Is it possible for someone to get pregnant immediately after an abortion, if the last time she had unprotected sexual intercourse was the day before the abortion?

Not possible.

Sperm only lives up to 5 days.

The hormones and uterus, or ovaries, would not be ready to create another pregnancy.

Infact, ovulation does not occur for about 6 weeks.

Sometimes less.

But not 5 days.
