Patient : I am Rh negative and 1 month pregnant. I had an abortion using medical pills last year to terminate my 2nd child as we are not yet ready for a 2nd baby. I had heavy bleeding for a day and drank anti-hemorrhaging tablet. I continued bleeding for 2weeks with large blood clots. I did not receive a Rhogam shot after coz I did not tell my OB gyne about our decision because it is illegal in our country. And now I am pregnant, my husband's father who is also a doctor, suggested to terminate our baby as it will be dangerous for mine and our baby's health to continue with my pregnancy because of the Rh diseases such as hemolytic disorder or anemia, but told us to consult my OB gyne first. I know my OB won't agree on this. My worries now is that is it safe to undergo another medical abortion? What will be the risks? Please help.
