Will you be able to get pregnant and have children after a medical abortion?

A medical abortion does not affect your ability to conceive or bear a child in the future. In fact, if you do not want to become pregnant at this time, it is important to start using contraceptives as soon as you start having sexual relations again. The risks are the same as after a spontaneous miscarriage.[1]
