I had an abortion a week ago and I was wondering if I can go back to playing basketball?

Start back slowly: Hello. The standard answer is to wait 2 weeks for vigorous activity. However if you feel fine and have minimal bleeding, you can give it a go. Start with an easy game, take more rest breaks than you might otherwise, listen to your body. If you have cramping or if your bleeding gets heavier, that's a sign to take a few days off and then start back slowly again
