You should be able to start normal exercise after three to six months of your operation. However not everyone is the same, and not everybody heals in the same way or within the same time frame. So let your body dictate how much exercise you should do. You can start with simple exercises like walking, cycling, swimming, & then gradually increase the intensity. The body takes around two years to replenish what is used up in a pregnancy, but there is no evidence to suggest that there are better pregnancy outcomes if you wait for two years for your next pregnancy. Therefore, you could start planning a pregnancy once you recover completely from the last one, and feel physically and mentally ready for it.
