In general, women are advised not to insert
anything into the vagina for approximately one week after a medication
abortion. Thus it is recommended that women not engage in vaginal
intercourse during this time period. Women can engage in other types
of sexual activity during this period.
Women typically ovulate two or three weeks after a medication
abortion. Thus women who are sexually active can become pregnant
within weeks of the abortion. Immediate use of an effective family method is highly recommended.
