An abortion usually not does increase the risk of future pregnancy complications.

Typically, the answer is no.

The risks from a medical abortion appears to be lower than that of a surgical abortion, though this may only be true because medical abortions are more common during early pregnancy. Overall, having an abortion early in a pregnancy reduces the risk of complications.

A medical abortion involves taking medication, and women tend to use this method during the first trimester. A combination of the medications mifepristone and prostaglandin, for example, has a success rate of up to 99%.

A medical abortion is relatively safe, and research indicates that it does not increase the risk of future pregnancy complications, such as preterm birth, low birth weight, pregnancy loss, or ectopic pregnancy, which involves the embryo attaching somewhere beyond the uterus.

A surgical abortion, also known as dilation and curettage — or D and C — involves removing the fetus with suction and a tool called a curette.

In rare cases, a surgical abortion can cause scarring of the uterine wall. Doctors call this Asherman’s syndrome. If scarring occurs, it may become more difficult to get pregnant again, and it may lead to pregnancy loss in the future.
