Pregnancy is a very important and challenging phase in a woman’s life. And if you do not wish to continue with a pregnancy, abortion is a popular choice. If you have recently had an abortion, chances are you are going through a lot, both physically and mentally.
Once you get an abortion service, there are a lot of things that need to be taken care of. These things ensure that your reproductive and overall health is maintained.
Now, we also know that you would be having a lot of questions in your mind. To answer some of the questions, here we have created a list of FAQs regarding post-abortion care.
Take a look:
When can I resume normal activities?
It is advised that you should only resume normal activities a day after you get the procedure done. You should take rest on the day of the procedure and avoid activities that are likely to induce pain.
When can I drive?
If you have got narcotic pain medications or oral relaxation, drive at least 8 hours after the procedure. If you have got intravenous (IV) medications, don’t drive for 24 hours.
Is bleeding normal?
You can bleed for a week or even on and off for up to 4 weeks after the procedure. You might notice small blood clots, red or dark purple in color. It is suggested that you do not use tampons after the procedure. Sanitary pads are the best choice.
Blood-tinged discharge that is yellow or brown is also common.
Will I experience cramps?
It is normal to experience cramps for a few days after the procedure.
