See below: Abortion, regardless of method, is a major event in anybody's life. Difficult the decision, difficult going through it, and difficult the after effects. Resuming sex post-abortion is a highly individualized experience and best to discuss openly with your partner and to resume sex whenever you feel physically, emotionally, and sexually healed. As opinions vary, best to ask question to your MD.
