I only took the first pill for abortion. Is it safe to have sex before taking the other abortion pill?

I only took the first pill for abortion. Is it safe to have sex before taking the other abortion pill?

Really! NO!: Why don't you solve one unintended pregnancy problem before you create another. Once the 2nd pill is taken the cervix (mouth of womb) will open to allow the pregnancy tissue to pass, but it will also allow bacteria from sexual encounters to enter and infect the interior of the uterus. I hope that the ensuing cramping and bleeding will make having sex a very low priority. ...Read more

I had a misscariage 9days ago. I took the abortion pill 2days later. The bleeding has stopped 2days ago. Can in have sex now or in a couple of days?

Post Miscarriage: You can begin or resume your sexual activity when ever you feel it is time and I would only caution you if there is any pain. Now, that said, the bigger worry for me and many who care for humans in medicine is the emotional cost of losing a pregnancy and when to attempt to get pregnant again. Often times grieving is part of the journey after a miscarriage and protecting against pregnancy is wise. ...Read more

What if it's only been a week since I had my medical abortion and I slip up and have sex. The bleeding was slowing down so I thought maybe its ok?

Slip in not slip up: If I may correct your syntax, this was not a slip up but a "slip in" that can create another pregnancy without contraception. Did you go back to the abortion MD and get re-examined to determine that there was no infection or that the prior pregnancy had indeed passed? If not, that is your first step which will boost your "learning curve" about how to prevent unintended pregnancy (contraception). ...Read more
