Hi, Dr. Stan here to help you today.

It all depends on whether you have had a spontaneous abortion, suction (D & C) or chemical abortion. How late into the pregnancy was your abortion? If spontaneous, you may have a more difficult time getting and maintaining future pregnancies. If D & C most likely no problem. If chemical, most likely no problems.

I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. We are credited only after you give a positive rating of 3-5 stars for the information I provided. Thank you.

At 39 it may be difficult to get pregnant, but not impossible.
