Usually after a surgical abortion rest is advised for a week and that includes abstinence and avoiding heavy work. If your abortion was incomplete, it would have resulted in persistent bleeding and pain. As you did not have any of these symptoms, you probably are in for a normal menstrual cycle, which occurs sooner than after a delivery when you have an abortion, either spontaneous or induced. Please have a checkup with your doctor for further guidance. Take care.
