Medical abortion and vacuum aspiration do not affect your ability to become pregnant in the future.1 It is possible to become pregnant in the weeks right after an abortion procedure.
Avoid sexual intercourse until your body has fully recovered, for at least 1 to 3 weeks.
To prevent infection and pregnancy, it is important to use condoms as directed by your doctor when you start to have intercourse again. This is a good time to also start a highly effective birth control method that fits your lifestyle. For more information, see the topic Birth Control.
