How long should I wait to masturbate after an abortion

Patient: How long should I wait to masturbate after a surgical abortion. I already had my follow up appointment but didn’t think to ask.

 

 

Doctor: Masturbation is not contraindicated after a surgical abortion unless specified by your doctor. After surgical evacuation , infections remain a major concern, so make sure you do not introduce germs anyway.
