When to resume intercourse after miscarriage?

Hi, I unknowingly miscarried at 8 weeks and got a medical abortion at 10 weeks. That was 8 days ago. My question is is it safe/okay for me to have sex 10 days after the procedure? They said no vaginal sex. But can I have any other form of sex? Which ones are safer, if any?

I am sorry for the abortion you had.
After an abortion, bleeding can occur for the following couple of weeks or until next period.

Vaginal sex is not advised to reduce the chances of getting infection

All the best.
