    You would want to wait until after your 6 week check-up for any vigerous exercise. You should be able to swim once the bleeding stops, and do light exercise (walking, etc.) as soon as you feel up to it.

    I would expect 6 weeks( duration of acute phase in healing). Talk to on/gyn on your next appt to be sure! Give your body time to heal girl!
