Abortion is one of the most common procedures in this country. Still, it’s understandable that women who are considering abortion may have questions about what to expect afterwards. So today, we’re going to demystify the post-abortion period and answer some common questions about recovery after an abortion.


How Do You Feel After An Abortion?

You might feel a sense of relief or even freedom after an abortion. You don’t have to carry the weight of being pregnant. Don’t have to worry about what you’ll do if you’re forced by circumstances or your health situation to raise a baby on your own.

You might feel sad that you had to make such a difficult choice, though. You may also be angry at yourself, which is common especially when it’s the result of something that could have been prevented like unprotected sex.

Abortion can leave you feeling like those feelings will never go away, but they do—and most people recover quickly and move on with their lives in healthy ways after the abortion process is complete.

What Should You Not Do After An Abortion?

There are certain things that you should avoid doing after your abortion. You should not lift heavy objects, do any strenuous exercise or even drink alcohol. This is because your body is in a weakened state and you could hurt yourself.

You shouldn’t use drugs either as they can cause complications to your recovery process and may lead to complications such as infection or excessive bleeding. Please use tampons until the period after your abortion has ended as this could also cause infections and excessive bleeding which could lead to serious health problems later on if left untreated.

Is It Safe To Have Sex After An Abortion?

Of course, it’s safe to have sex after an abortion! After having a medical procedure, it can take some time for your body to fully recover, but you should feel yourself returning to normal very quickly. If your doctor has given you the OK to resume sexual activity and you’re feeling ready, there are plenty of ways for you and your partner to be intimate.

If you’re worried about getting pregnant again too soon after an abortion (or with any other kind of birth control), don’t be! There are plenty of options available that allow couples who want more kids or just want better birth control than condoms on hand at all times. The most common is probably the IUD.

When Can You Take A Pregnancy Test Again?

It is important to wait until your period is due. Some women can feel the signs of pregnancy right away, while others do not know anything until they see a positive result on the pregnancy test.

If you took a pregnancy test and got negative results, wait until your period is due and then take another one. However, If you took a home pregnancy test and got positive results (a sign that someone has gotten pregnant), wait until your period is due and then take another one.

It is very normal to experience a wide range of emotions after an abortion.

It is very normal to experience a wide range of emotions after an abortion. You may feel sad or angry, even though it’s okay to not be okay right now. It can be overwhelming and confusing when you are in a situation where there are a lot of things happening at once. But remember that emotions will pass and your feelings will change over time as you heal—but they won’t go away completely!


We know the idea of surgical or medical abortion can be overwhelming, but we hope these tips have helped put you at ease. If you are thinking about getting an abortion, don’t worry too much about the recovery period. Everyone recovers from procedures differently, so just be sure to follow instructions from your doctor or clinician and take good care of yourself!
