Myth-Busting Monday: Does abortion cause infertility?

Welcome to the first ever Myth-Busting Monday! Every Monday EFC busts myths and take names, cutting through the misinformation, disinformation, and straight up nonsense to bring you the facts.

Let’s start with the basics. One of the most common questions we get from young people and professionals alike is: does abortion cause infertility? There is no link between abortion and infertility. In fact, most women are fully fertile within two weeks of having an abortion, so it’s crucial to get advice to help choose and use an appropriate form of contraception right away. Some contraceptive methods can be fitted or initiated at the time of abortion and women seeking abortion should ask about this.

Myth one, consider yourself busted.
