  • Hi, I didnt know what it was but I looked up a couple of things and this is what I found:

    "You'll need to take it easy immediately after a CVS test, so arrange for someone to drive you home. For the rest of the day, you'll need to rest. Generally women are advised to abstain from strenuous physical activity, sex, and exercise for three days following the procedure. You may have some cramping and bleeding, which is normal, but do tell your doctor or midwife. If you notice fluid leaking from your vagina, call your health care provider immediately."
