The Rest OfThe Story: Yeah, funny term, "pelvic rest." (Actually, I think the pelvis, like rust, never sleeps) It really means different things, depending on what was wrong. For extensive injuries or surgery, it should be complete (nothing inside, and no manipulation from the outside). After a D&C I'd suggest complete for 1-2 weeks then "partial" for another 1-2 weeks (nothing inside but external stimulation OK).
