Physical recovery after an abortion

These instructions are for recovery after a surgical abortion. Most of them apply to a chemical (medical) abortion as well. Okay, so you just have an abortion? What physical evidence should you look? What can you do it for yourself then as well on your back? What about fertility? How fast can you get pregnant again?

To the care of yourself - Basic things you can do:

2. Stay away from work for a few days, if you can

3. Take vitamins, eat healthy food, and try to sleep

4. Take the antibiotic prescribed by your doctor immediately, and for the full amount of days required!

5. No exercise for two weeks

6. No swimming pools or bath for 2 weeks

7. Not lift anything over 15 pounds for two weeks, do not use ANYTHING vaginally for 2-4 weeks - no sex, no tampons, no showers.

8. 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!

9. After 2-4 weeks, you may not have sex unless you again feel physically recovered, and have discussed with your partner what you want to do if an unplanned pregnancy occurs again. Do not be under pressure in sex again before you physically and emotionally ready, and had a serious discussion about the direction for the future unplanned pregnancies. You can pregnant as soon as two weeks after an abortion! Your body will usually go back to the regular cycle, and an egg (ovulation) at 2 weeks post-ab. So if you decide you're ready to resume sexual intercourse again, make sure you are using birth control immediately. As many of us know, birth is not 100% effective. So it's very important that you do not have sex until you are healed physically and emotionally, and you have a clear consensus on what will happen if you become pregnant again unexpectedly.

10. For women who have abortions for maternal health reasons or poor prenatal diagnosis, consult your doctor about birth control and future pregnancies.

11. If you have more than 9 weeks into the pregnancy, it is possible that you may have problems with milk or a milk-like fluid leaks from your breasts after the abortion. The further along you were, the higher the chance that your milk will ". This is sad, but it will not last long. It is a normal functioning of hormones that your body releases when you no longer pregnant. These hormones make you body begins to produce milk if a pregnancy is terminated. May your breasts feel sore, tight, swollen and leaking drops of clear whitish liquid. At times when the milk "let down" and a considerable amount of fluid can come. To help with this stage, wearing a bra well-fitting/snug, and try to prevent the stimulation of your breasts and nipples. Wear the bra 24 hours a day until your milk dries up. It may be one to four weeks for the milk to dry. It will not be as painful as the initial feeling when the milk in first - the milk is' used 'the pressure on the milk channels milk to' dry '. Keep cozy contribute appropriate bra, and take Tylenol for the soreness, and it will disappear. If you have fever or extreme sensitivity to any of your breasts, a doctor - there is also a condition where your milk glands may be contaminated, and will be treated with antibiotics.

How important is that 2-week check-up then?
It is very important! Why?

* It is important that a doctor check and make sure that no infection in your womb.

* It is important to see if you cure

* It is important to see that your cervix is closed completely - it takes two weeks or longer after an abortion. Once your cervix has returned to normal 'closed', then it is safe for you to swim, take a bath, have intercourse, ect. When your cervix is still open, there is a chance that bacteria can get into your uterus, causing painful and potentially harmful infections.

* It is important to ensure that the abortion was complete. Sometimes there are cases in which tissue is still preserved - it can be a "missed abortion" or an "incomplete abortion." This is a serious matter when it happens, and usually you must immediately subjected to a D & C to remove the remaining tissue.

Not escape the control, it could lead to severe pain and complications later! Some women have stated that they can not to return to the clinic over the two week check-up. That's okay, then call your regular gyn doctor and tell him that you need a check-up immediately. When you tell him that you have had an abortion, they will press to go back to the same clinic that performed the abortion for the audit. Because malpractice issues, doctors are reluctant to follow up on other doctor's work - but firmly that you can not go back to the clinic, and you have to be seen. They tell you they can not see, but his company, and say that you do not always return to the clinic, for your own personal reasons - and insist that the doctor see. If the doctor refuses, then call a new doctor of your health plan, or the yellow pages. Tell this new doctor that you have just switched insurance and must be seen.

Complain of pain, bleeding and cramping and once you are with the doctor, can you tell the truth about what is going on. A doctor will see you there. Just remember that for insurance purposes, they will try as hard as they can to help you return to the clinic. If you do not want to go back to press you a doctor, that you will see.

Do not let them bully you simply ignore your check-up. Previously, I was very shy to say what my doctors about my abortions - when I finally told the truth, I was surprised that he did not comment on all and only pointed out the graph. For some reason I was expecting a lecture, or of the ruling or criticism - instead it was nothing, that is how doctors should respond. Most of them are very non-subjective, and inappropriate comments will not tell you when you had an abortion.
