Do I have an infection?
A fever could indicate that you have an infection. If you have a fever, we advise you to go see a doctor as soon as possible. It is also very important that you have an ultrasound made to check whether there the abortion was complete and there are no remains in the uterus. An infection can be treated by a doctor with antibiotics. Chills are a normal side effect of Misoprostol as well as some elevation of body temperature. However, if you have a fever (> 38 degrees Celsius) for more than 24 hours, or if you have a fever of more than 39 degrees, contact a doctor, because there might be an infection as a result of an incomplete abortion that needs treatment (with antibiotics and/or vacuum aspiration).
