I had a medical abortion 2 days back and I masturbated today I am afraid if sperm is still inside my body and I m tensed if again I get pregnant.

Won't happen: If indeed, the medical abortion was successful in terminating the pregnancy, then it will be a minimum of 14 days or more before you will ovulate again. Unless you have sex within 4-5 days of that occurring, you will not get pregnant - surely not from any sperm that caused the previous pregnancy. You should seek birth control counseling if you intend to have sex and do not want to get pregnant. ...Read more

The: The only way to know for sure is to have a pregnancy test. This can be done at home or in your doctor's office. Based on what you described it sounds like the treatment worked in terminating your pregnancy, but this needs to be confirmed with a follow up pregnancy test. On the other hand, it is normal for your regular period to take a few months to resume after taking misoprostol. Your body's hormone levels need time to normalize. This may be the explanation as to why your periods have not resumed.
Good luck to you. ...Read more
