Medical abortion done, have slight bleeding now, was prescribed Nuva ring. Can I insert it now?

I had a medication abortion three days ago. It was successful and I m awaiting my follow up appointment in about two weeks. I was prescribed a Nuva Ring for birth control . I read Nuva Ring can be started during your period within the first few days. Counting day one of bleeding as one and after seven days the Nuva Ring would be effective. After having the abortion is the same true? Id like to insert it now. I m bleeding still but very lightly.

Thanks for writing to us.
After an abortion, you can get a check ultrasound scan done to make it sure that the uterine cavity is empty. Then you can get it inserted for contraceptive purposes. You can get it inserted now with the light spotting.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
