How Long Will it Take to Recover From a Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA)?

Recovery times after an abortion will be different for everyone and will depend on how many weeks pregnant you are when the abortion occurs. Also, there is no medically proven amount of time that you have to wait to do specific activities, such as shower/bath, exercise, have sex, or use tampons. Whenever you feel you are ready, you can go back to your normal life. [1]
