Terminating pregnancy by medicines do bring hormonal imbalance making it more difficult to conceive again. Track your fertile window and practice regular sex during those days.

Ideal time to take pregnancy test is after two weeks of missed period. The wait is because the body needs time to develop a level of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) hormones in case you are pregnant.
