Is it necessary to rest after amniocentesis?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 03/23/2018

Yes, it is convenient to have absolute rest the same day after the amniotic puncture and not to make great efforts during the following 2 or 3 days. It is also not recommended to have sexual relations during the following week.

In case of significant cramps, loss of amniotic fluid or bleeding, it is advisable to see a doctor as soon as possible.
