How long after having a medication abortion will a woman resume normal menstruation?

Most women will ovulate within the first two or three weeks after the abortion. Consequently, most women will have a normal menstrual period within six weeks of the abortion. A woman can become pregnant once ovulation resumes and immediate use of an effective family planning method is highly recommended.
