I was six weeks pregnant, and on the ninth and tenth of this month, I had severe cramps and heavy bleeding. So, I consulted my doctor on the 11th, and she said that it was a miscarriage, and she gave me the first dose of the abortion pill.
She gave the second dose on the 13th, which was inserted vaginally. The bleeding with clots continued and stopped after four days. I am physically normal, and I had sex on the 19th. Is it safe?
Is there any chance of pregnancy or any other complications? Kindly suggest.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
There is very less chance of pregnancy, but it is tough to say. Mostly, ovulation takes approximately 15 to 20 days to resume after abortion. But sometimes, it can resume early.
As it is just six days after the last tablet, there is very less chance. But yes, be careful next time and use protection. And it also depends on whether the abortion is complete or not. If you are bleeding now after tablets, it means that the abortion was incomplete.
If you had sex today, then you can take emergency contraceptive pills also. There is no such complication from sex. I do not know if you are bleeding still or not. Drink more water.
And if required, do consult your doctor if bleeding is still there. And if bleeding stopped or just spotting is there, then as I said, there is a minimal chance of pregnancy.
Hopefully, you have got your answer. If you have any more doubts, then you can follow-up. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. The bleeding completely stopped by the 16th of this month, and I got to know that I should not have sex at least for a month after abortion, otherwise there may be a chance of infection.
Is that true? I do not want to get pregnant for at least next six months. Which is the best way of precaution? If I use any oral birth control pills, will it lead to any side effects? Kindly reply.

If the bleeding stopped by the 16th, then there is no chance of pregnancy.
Yes, there is a higher chance of infection within a month of abortion, because blood is a good medium for infection to grow and also uterus and vagina comes to the normal state in this period. But, do not worry about that much. Try doing the following to reduce the chance of infection:
