Hi,

i took misoprostol three days ago and the worst of the bleeding is over (in fact, it's nearly all gone). I was wondering if it is safe to have sex again, and if not, why not? Obviously, with the surgical procedure sex should be held off but can anybody tell me the risks of having sex three days after taking misprostol if proper protection is used and the bleeding has minimized?

Has anyone else does this so soon?

Thanks.

Your cervix is dilated during surgical, so you should wait at least one week to begin sexual relations. When your cervix is dilated you can get germs and bacteria up inside of your uterus. Misoprostol does cause dilation and softening of the cervix. Can you feel for your cervix to ensure that it is closed? I also would say to call your provider, and it is easier to become pregnant after an abortion.
