Cramping, spotting: The main physical changes are the body going back to its pre-pregnancy state. Someone can have cramping or spotting. Sometimes breasts can become swollen, painful or engorged. Most of these symptoms can be managed with ibuprofen. I also recommend following up with one's doctor afterwards to check in. If fever, pain, nausea/vomiting, or foul discharge occur, seek immediate help.
