can i masturbate after having a D C

I had a D&C done yesterday after a miscarriage.  i know i cant have sex for at least 2 weeks after but i was wondering if masturbating using clitoral stimulation only would be ok or if i have to wait before doing anything?

You will need to specifically ask your medical provider or surgeon that performed your D&C. Masturbating to orgasm, even through clitoral stimulation, can cause contractions of your uterus and increase or cause undesirable bleeding.
