After Termination of Pregnancy

  1. You have to drink a lot of fluids including water to replenish your body.
  2. You have to make sure you have recovered fully so get a few days leave.
  3. Eat healthy food and take vitamins and get a lot of rest
  4. If you see something unusual go to the nearest hospital immediately
  5. Do not exercise for two weeks
  6. No swimming or tub baths for 2 weeks
  7. Don’t lift heavy things, keep clear of hard work
  8. Do not insert anything in your vagina for up to a month no sex, no tampons, no douches.
  9. You can ovulate as soon as two weeks after an abortion, which means yes, you could get pregnant again within two weeks after an abortion!
  10. Do not have unprotected sex again as you will conceive again and go through this process all over again. Do not allow your partner to pressurize you into unprotected sex.
  11. For women who had an abortion for maternal health reasons, or for a poor prenatal diagnosis, consult your doctor about birth control and future pregnancies.
