Abstract

A four to five years follow-up upon subsequent fertility was performed on 46 women who underwent a midtrimester termination of pregnancy. Thirty out of 31 (96.8%) women who wanted to conceive became pregnant. Of those, term delivery rate was 73.3%. Only one woman who desired to conceive could not become pregnant. Her infertility workup revealed bilateral occlusion of tubes. We conclude that termination of pregnancy in midtrimester possibly has little, if any, impact upon subsequent fertility.
