Exercising After a Medical Abortion

Abortion Pill

It is as safe to exercise following a medical abortion as during exercising during pregnancy. Your doctor’s recommendation after considering your condition will help you to know how to resume your workout regime. The doctor may advise you waiting for a few weeks.

After a first trimester abortion, your body will return to the normal routine very quickly. So, you can return to the gym or to your normal exercise routine within a few days. But, if the doctor advises you to wait for some weeks, you can do mindfulness and breathing exercise to relieve any anxiety you may feel.

Your Physical State After an Abortion

Walking
