When can you do things again?

Like sex, or swimming?

Sex - The nurse told me to wait until the bleeding has stopped so no infection gets in the open cervix.

Swimming/sitting in a bath - she said wait til its stopped so water doesn't get in.

Is it different to a period? I would sit in the bath with a period, and I would swim - but with a mooncup in. The bleeding has practically stopped now - nothing on my liner when I went to the loo at lunch but watery pink on the tissue when I wiped.

Do I still need to wait until I can swim or have sex again?

I would wait until nothing is there, it will probably only a be a few more days if only a little is there now.

I would wait until it's completely stopped, and I've always waited for a negative pregnancy test before having sex again as wouldn't want the confusion of not knowing if there's a new pregnancy or it's left over hormones from the mc.

Ok thank you, that's a good point re being pg again.

I was always told to wait a few weeks even after the bleeding has stopped.
