Can you fly after having an abortion?

48 hours if you can. It is best to wait at least 48 hours if you can because of unpredicible bleeding and cramping. You would be wise to remain close to medical help in the unlikely scenario you might need it. There is also a very rare chance of blood clot risk right after any surgical procedure and air flight may raise that risk ever so slightly. Rest, hydrate, and move the air flight two days ahead if possible.
