You should be fine..: D&c is a common procedure and it has been 2 wks now and you are not having symptoms, you should be able to resume your usual activities including relations. Should not need antibiotic at this time. If planning to get pregnant again, eat well, take your prenatal vitamins, exercise regularly, and see doc as well. I am sorry about you having to do an abortion. Best of luck to you...
