User avatar Hello,
If you have been taking the pill as prescribed you should be safe from pregnancy. This is a very reliable method of birth control when taken daily. You should not need to worry about pregnancy but of course you should report any signs of infection, discharge, unusual pain or excessive bleeding relating to the recovery following the abortion.

Best wishes.
