Frenular tear and pregnancy ?

User Profile
Doctor, my wife had sex on 17th of July 2010. Then Frenular tear happened to my penis and the blood from the cut dropped into her vagina (not sure about semen) . Her menstrual cycle comes on 8th of every month . She got the periods on August month but missed for September. Suspecting the pregnancy (which we are reluctant to have a baby) , ate Papayas and took 3 regestrone tablets from September 28th(daily one) . Now she is having breast pain . She is also using Vinlep(300 and 450 mg) tablets and Folvite tablets as medication prescribed by the doctor for other ailments . Please suggest to avoid pregnancy (if she has) , since we cant go to hospital for abortion because of family issues . Also suggest some practices which can be done at home for pregnancy check , and about the symptoms of pregnancy .

First Trimester of Pregnancy Answer A16512
Welcome to ehealthforum.
First of all pregnancy should be confirmed before taking further action. Rather than relying on home tests and solutions, I would recommend you to go ahead with visiting a gynecologist and getting a blood HCG test done (it can detect pregnancy accurately as early as 11 days post conception). If found to be pregnant, go ahead with discussing the best possible way to abort it if you are not ready for baby (which would be effective than trying home methods which can have dangerous effects on health). Do not worry, patient identity and details are kept confidential.
You are married; consider continuing with pregnancy since abortion itself is associated with high rates of infertility and conception problems later in life (due to association of uterine scarring, adhesions and endometriosis). When abortion is attempted without supervision, it can result in uncontrolled bleeding and retained products of conception which can have life threatening consequences.
Consider abortion as the last choice of your action after careful evaluation of risks and benefits to both of you (especially to your wife and her health).
You may consider going through this link for detailed explanation of the risks of abortions and it’s after effects:
It may seem at present that abortion will wipe away this situation that you currently into and you can just move on. However it is not that simple. Abortion is not just another simple medical procedure. For many women, it is a life changing event with significant physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences. Most women who struggle with past abortions say that they wish they had been told all of the facts about abortion and its risks. Following abortion, many women may experience initial relief. The perceived crisis is usually over and life returns to normal (if not associated with immediate complications). For many women, however, the crisis isn’t over. Months and even years later, significant problems develop. There is evidence that abortion is associated with a decrease in both emotional and physical health, long term fertility levels.
Hope this helps you to take an informed decision.
Take care.
