Question
i had an abortion 29th of june & had sex on 2nd of july....pls,am i save

Answer
More than likely, yes. However, it is possible to ovulate quickly after an abortion procedure, so you should be using some sort of protection. It is also important to be using protection because of the risk of infection after an abortion procedure. Taking a pregnancy test at this point will not provide a clear answer as to whether or not you could be pregnant again, as a pregnancy test will remain positive for up to 4 weeks after an abortion. The best way to know would be either a blood test or an ultrasound.
