Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

If you took morning after pill Aug 22/23 and then had sex on Sept 2, you are unlikely to be pregnant, as Sept 2 is almost 27-28th day from medical abortion date. Also, in case you just ovulated the month after abortion then the emergency contraceptive may have acted to prevent it (if you ovulated on 17-18th day of cycle), or may not have acted if you ovulated on 14th-15th day. However, if you ovulated on 14-15th day, then ovum would probably have died by the time you had unprotected sex.

After medical termination of pregnancy, it may be some time before ovulation and periods resume a set pattern. So if you want to avoid pregnancy, use condoms. Also, buy ovulation prediction kit to see when you are ovulating. Avoid unprotected sex during the time of your ovulation-a day or two before to a day or two after.

Please consult your healthcare provider for further guidance.

Hope this helped you in making an informed decision about your health. Take care!
