  • How long does it take to recover from an abortion?

Post abortion, you can go back to your regular daily activities, but do not put anything into your vagina until you have had your follow-up exam. This means no vaginal intercourse, no tampax or tampons- use only pads. No tub baths or swimming- take showers, and no douching. Your first period should begin in 4-8 weeks. It may be heavier than usual, with more cramping and possibly clotting. This is normal. Call us if you do not get your period within 12 weeks. It is possible to get pregnant before your next period since ovulation, the time when you can get pregnant, occurs before your period. Remember to use a reliable method of birth control and to wait until after your follow-up exam at least 2 weeks after your procedure before having intercourse.
