Posted by Jantz on May 31st, 2021
An ultrasound appointment will first be made to confirm how far along in the pregnancy you are, phathaiantoanbinhduong-562366.webflow.io/ followed by an appointment for a Thu Dau Mot Clinic at Binh Duong (pre-op visit) and sometimes an appointment with the Medical Social Worker. The nurse will talk to you about your medical history, your thoughts and feelings around the pregnancy, options for birth control (contraception) and explain what to expect depending whether you are having the medical or surgical abortion and will be sent to have blood work done. All information obtained is confidential and the staff at the WHC are here to support you.
The surgical abortion is called a suction D&C (dilation and curettage). The procedure is usually done in one day, and is done using procedural sedation given through an IV, where you are awake, but sedated. On days that abortion services are offered, women can usually be seen into the 14th week of pregnancy and the procedure day is divided into two parts. Sometimes women can be seen in the 15th to 18th weeks of pregnancy, and the procedure is then divided into 2 days.
Part One of Procedure Day
You will meet with a nurse at the start of your appointment. She will be the one providing medications during the procedure, so that you are as comfortable as possible. She will make sure you had not eaten anything since midnight, make sure you remain firm in your decision, and ask you a few other questions.
You will then meet with the physician who will discuss your decision and have you sign the consent form. The doctor will also discuss birth control options and help you get established on the birth control you choose.
Following this discussion, the doctor will take your medical history and may do a physical exam. A laminaria (a small stick of compressed seaweed) may be inserted into your cervix. Laminaria absorbs fluid from around it, which causes it to swell. This swelling softens the cervix and begins to open it. This makes the procedure easier to perform and reduces the risk of damage to the cervix. The doctor instead may choose to give you a medication called misoprostol, either by mouth or in the vagina, instead of laminaria. The laminaria or misoprostol may cause you to have some cramping or bleeding.
Part Two of Procedure Day
Once the Laminaria or misoprostol has taken effect, the pregnancy is removed by suction D&C (dilitation and curettage) which means removal of the uterine lining. It is done under local anesthetic (freezing in the cervix) and medications to make you feel relaxed and comfortable through an intravenous.
The physician freezes the cervix then dilates it to the diameter of the suction curette, which is only millimeter's wide. Once the suction curette will fit through the cervix the suction is turned on. The physician will gently rotate it removing the tissue from the wall. The suction curette is removed and a metal curette is then used to ensure all tissue has been removed from the uterine wall. The uterus is then suctioned one more time. This part of the process takes six - 10 minutes, however you will be in the procedure room for about 30 minutes.
You will need to stay in the recovery room for about one hour before you are discharged to go home.
You may experience period-like cramps and bleeding for three to 10 days after the surgical procedure. If you are soaking a pad in an hour, three hours in a row, you need to seek out emergency care. You may have bleeding that starts and stops for up to three weeks followig the medical abortion.
It is important not to put anything in the vagina while you are bleeding, including tampons and having intercourse, to reduce your risk of infection. If you have signs of infection such as foul smelling vaginal discharge, fever over 38 C (100.4 F), severe pain or cramps that are not getting better should access medical care.
There is no right way to feel after an abortion. Most women report feeling relieved that it is over and confident that the abortion was their best decision. Most women do not report regret or severe emotional distress, but may feel sadness that the pregnancy occurred at the wrong time. Some women may have feelings of guilt or anger too.
