Post-treatment care

Ensuring your health after a spontaneous miscarriage or unsafe procedure

Post-treatment care may involve a small medical or surgical procedure to ensure that the womb is completely empty, but may also involve treating an infection or injury depending on the situation.

We also recognize that having an abortion can affect both emotional and physical well being, and we offer counselling for women. It's our duty to ensure we provide the best help possible to our clients.

What to expect after an abortion

Although there is usually a little pain and bleeding, physical recovery after treatment happens fairly quickly for most women.

We are here to make sure all our clients are physically healthy following any appointment or procedure with us.

Our team is also on hand to offer emotional support with any concerns you may have. If any concerns or questions arise, please get in touch with our friendly call centre staff at any time for a confidential chat, we are here to help.

Aftercare

If you've recently undergone an abortion procedure, here are a few pieces of advice about aftercare and recovery.

You may have symptoms of nausea, vomiting and tiredness for a few days immediately after the treatment. This is normal. Tender breasts may take a week to 10 days to disappear. You may feel more comfortable if you wear a supportive bra and apply cold ice packs to your breasts. Take painkillers, if necessary for the pain.

Along with the physical symptoms after treatment, it is not uncommon for some women to experience emotions, such as sadness or guilt. If this happens we recommend that you speak you speak with someone or schedule a counselling appointment with our team.

Frequently asked questions about abortion

When will I be able to return to my normal activities?

We recommend a couple of days of rest after, but generally, most women will be physically fit and well enough to return to normal activities within a day or two.

How long will I take two full recover?

Most women recover quickly from an abortion.

Chances are, you will too. But there are a few things you can do to make the experience easier. Avoid having sex for two weeks to minimise the risk of infection. Start using contraception straight away to protect yourself from another pregnancy. And keep an eye on your bleeding. Most women bleed for one or two weeks afterwards and it’ll feel a bit like having a period.

If you have any worries at all – whether that’s to do with your physical or emotional wellbeing – get in touch with us or your GP. We offer confidential counselling if you want to talk about how you’re feeling, and our aftercare line is open 24 hours a day.

When will I have the menstrual period after my abortion?

Your next menstrual period will begin 4-6 weeks after your treatment. If you have not had a period 6 weeks after your treatment, you should take a pregnancy test. If it is positive, we recommend contacting our team immediately. It's important to remember that any bleeding immediately after your treatment is not a period.
