i know that you're not meant to exercise after an abortion for 2 weeks, does anyone know why though?

    Is it just a general "Your body's been through a lot so best to take it easy" kind of thing?

    We normally say to people not to exercise for at least 2 - 5 days (some places will say 2 weeks keeping in line for the 2 week rule on sex etc) as the exercise increases blood flow, and this in turn can increase the bleeding.
