Uterus heals completely in 7-10 days and patients can resume exercise, driving or other strenuous activities. The patient is advised to avoid tampons and sexual intercourse during the healing period to prevent infections and promote healthy healing. Also, it is recommended to take prescribed medications for the prevention of infection of the uterus during healing.
