When can I go back to work?
As there is a lot bleeding and pain for a few hours after taking misoprostol, women are advised not to work during that time. Most women return to work or school the day after the abortion. 15 It is important that the woman eat healthy food and drink plenty of water and juices and take care of herself. A woman MUST listen to her body. If she does a lot of physical lifting and heavy work, she might need more than one day away from work. Every woman’s body is different.
