In some settings, antibiotics are routinely prescribed following medical abortion. This study compared side effects among women who received doxycycline to those who did not and evaluated adherence to one prescribed regimen. Adherence was found to be moderate; women who were prescribed doxycycline reported significantly more vomiting than their counterparts.
