When can you start having sexual relations again after having an abortion with pills?
It is best to wait 4-7 days after taking the Misoprostol to have sexual relations. Right after the abortion, the cervix might be slightly open, and there is a greater risk of infection if you have sexual relations during this time.
It is normal to have irregular light bleeding for up to two weeks after a medical abortion (sometimes even longer). You can have sexual relations even if you are still bleeding, although it seems best to wait until the bleeding reduces. If you do not wish to become pregnant, it is important to use contraception every time you engage in sexual relations, or start hormonal contraception on the day you take Mifepristone (injection, implant) or the day after you used Misoprostol (oral contraceptive pill).
Although it may be several weeks after your abortion before you begin your menstruation again, you could ovulate in the first week or two after your abortion, which means you could get pregnant right away. If you do not want to become pregnant, it is very important to start using contraceptives immediately.
