How do you know if you have an infection?

Infections following medical abortions are very rare. If you feel weakness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever of 100.4 that lasts more than 24 hours or is higher than 102.2 F, pain in your belly, if your belly feels sore or tender, if you bleed a lot or for a long time, or if you have vaginal discharge that smells bad, you might have an infection and you should go to a doctor immediately. The infection should be treated with antibiotics.

A fever that starts soon after Misoprostol administration and lasts less than 24 hours and is less than 100.4 F/ is a common side effect. If the fever lasts longer than 24 hours or is greater than 100.4 F, you should seek medical attention.
