In brief: 4-6 weeks

On average it may take 4-6 weeks after a medical abortion to resume menstruation.
Your previous menstrual history may affect this time interval and it could be longer. You should already be using contraception, because you ovulate before you menstruate and could very well conceive again if you are having unpprotected sex.
