Doctors say the woman, named only as 'Xiao Ju', may now be infertile because her uterus is so badly damaged after all the procedures.Zhao Qin, head of gynaecology at Shiyan Maternity and Child Health Care Hospital in China, said she had implored the pregnant woman to keep her child - because it may have been her last chance at motherhood. However, the 27-year-old insisted on the procedure, leaving Zhao and her colleagues no choice but to perform what was the patient's 17th abortion in just six years. Xiao Ju had her first abortion when she was 21, the year she began dating her current boyfriend of six years, with whom she apparently does not use any contraception. Since then, medics say she has become a "regular customer" at the hospital's gynaecology department, averaging nearly three abortions per year. Doctor Zhao realised the severity of Xiao Ju's physical condition while examining her for her latest procedure. She said: "I found her uterus lining to be critically thin, like a piece of paper, due to the repeated abortions she had had. "Her uterus was also badly scarred."
