Post Abortion!

Hello Gynae Doc...

Please can you just help me with a question, i was just wondering how long after abortion should a girl refrain from any sexual activity, be it masturbation or sex? can damage be done if one has intercoarse soon after an abortion? i know this sounds very BAD and all, but it is important for me to know please!

I thank you ever so kindly....

You should not have sex for at least two weeks or till the bleeding has stopped. Masturbation is fine.

Best wishes

Yes, you can get infection if you don't. The area where the placenta came away must first form a scab and heal completely before you can resume sexual activities. You should wait at least two weeks.
