I recently had an abortion about 5 days ago well my bf and I weren't able to keep away for the 2 weeks. Latley we've been having sex but right after I have horrible abdominal pain and my bleeding hasn't stopped even though it has gotten lighter. Is having sex prolonging the bleeding and causing the pain?
MEDICAL abortion only takes a FEW days to heal from, many doctors advise that you can have sex 3 days after a medical abortion. This is because the cervix is not dilated in the same fashion as a surgical abortion.
Abortion is NOT traumatic for many women, and yes they do want to move on with life, and their sex lives.
You usually get a sheet to take home after an abortion detailing things you should and shouldnt do... for example you arent meant to have sex for at least a week (maybe even 2?) because of increased risk of infection
