Each abortion does weaken your cervix, causing long term problems. Having so many weakens your cervix more. So soon gives less time to heal. Also, the larger the baby, the more damage to your cervix because the doctor has to open it each abortion.

On a moral note, what you are doing is horrible. As a sonographer by profession, I regularly see these babies' hearts beating at 5 weeks LMP, or 3 weeks from conception. Between 8 and 9 weeks LMP, 6 or 7 weeks from conception they move. By 12 weeks LMP they kick, suck their thumb, roll over, and react to being pushed. If being pushed bothers the baby, being dismembered limb from limb is absolutley terrible.

Because this is not the board about the morals of abortion. That is why the debate board is there.

Congratulations KimJBo, It still does not change the fact that this is not a board to force your judgment on other people that have a clearly different view than you ("On a moral note, what you are doing is horrible"). The board for that is the Abortion Debate Forum http://ehealthforum.com/health/forum169.ht ml. There you will find enough people that will agree with you, as well as differ from you.

Sorry I couldn't be much help to you. Maybe you could find a forum for that.

You are putting yourself at a slightly higher risk, however there is risk involved with any medical procedure, including childbirth (it is a natural thing, but medical in the scientific sense). Having abortions this close together does NOT increase the chances of a weakened cervix, unless you had a D&C or surgical abortion, where they had to insert things into your cervix. If you had the medical abortion (pill), there is no risk to your cervix, however repeated abortions (used as birth control), regardless if they were surgical or medical could damage your reproductive tract and there is a slight risk of infertility. Childbirth carries similar risks. The best person to talk to would be your doctor, who can inform you of the risks associated with close abortions. That way you are able to make an informed decision based upon your own personal risks/benefits.
While you are at your doctor appointment, please bring up the subject of birth control. If you are already on a birth control, it might be best to try a new one, especially if it has failed on you twice. Condoms should be used along with birth control, as they protect you further against pregnancy and have the added benefit of protecting you from STI/STDs, something birth control cannot do. Please ask your doctor how to properly use the birth control that you are prescribed, such as taking it regularly, how some medications (antibiotics, for example)can interfere with its effectiveness, and how it may change your body (lighter periods, weight gain, clearer skin, etc). Best of luck and remember, it is your decision to make, but make an informed decision.
