In brief: Consistent contracep

Probably, but it is now time to go to your physician or OB-Gyn specialist to start a better more effective form of contraceptive such as an IUD, pill, implant, or at least use condoms to avoid another unwanted pregnancy and the stress of another procedure on your body.

In brief: Plan B helps

Plan b works when taking as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse.
If you had an abortion one month ago then you may have ovulated and pregnancy is possible. It is most effective when taken within 72 hours of intercourse. Please consider starting a more effective birth control pan. You can schedule a virtual visit on Healthtap and get a prescription for birth control pills.
