Vacuum abortion as a relatively safe method of abortion
In those cases when the coming pregnancyundesirable, women resort to her artificial interruption. This operation, in spite of its prevalence, is quite dangerous for complications, but at a small time, their probability can be reduced to a minimum. For this, there are techniques such as drug abortion and vacuum abortion. Vacuum abortion differs from the usual in that it uses a fundamentally different technology: the contents of the uterus are not scraped by metal devices, but sucked off with a vacuum pump. In this case, the traumatism of the operation is much less, so much so that such an operation is performed on an outpatient basis for several minutes under local anesthesia, and after 1.5-2 hours a woman can return to a normal daily life. No additional treatment is necessary after the abortion, but after a couple of weeks it is necessary to appear to a specialist in order to confirm the termination of pregnancy and the absence of consequences of the operation. A vacuum abortion is performed at the delay of up to 20 days - by this time it is necessary to make sure of pregnancy, to hand over all the prescribed tests and to register for a procedure, so the sooner this happens, the better. the best option is to do everything in the first week of delay, because the deadline may be somewhat greater than the expected.
Despite the fact that the likelihood of complications afterThis operation is minimal - in comparison with usual medical abortion it is 5-6 times lower, sometimes they do happen, because vacuum abortion is still a sparing but operative intervention. The main symptoms of complications are the temperature after abortion, usually on day 3-4, and persistent discharge. I must say that normal for a full-term abortion, prolonged discharge for mini-abortion is uncharacteristic, but sometimes, quite often on 3-4 days there are spotting similar to menstrual blood. They last a week or more and are a variant of the norm: thus, hormonal changes in the body are manifested. if they become more abundant, there is pain and temperature - a visit to the doctor in this case is necessary. The temperature after the abortion testifies to some kind of inflammatory process and is the reason for an immediate call to the doctor.
Apparently, 3-4 days after it was madevacuum abortion is the most difficult period, and at this time you need to be as attentive to your body as possible so that you do not miss the alarming symptoms. Also during this period you should avoid physical exertion and provide yourself with the most sparing regimen.
Immediately after a mini-abortion, you can take care offurther contraceptive measures. In some cases, it is possible to establish intrauterine contraceptives immediately after surgery, but more often the doctor prescribes oral contraceptives, which can be taken several days after the operation. This will not only reduce the risk of a possible recurrence of the situation, but also help the body restore the hormonal balance, which is inevitably disturbed by the interruption of pregnancy, no matter how it happens. Here there is a very important point: in no case can you choose these drugs yourself - the doctor should prescribe them and only on the basis of hormone tests, otherwise you can not help but harm.
Vacuum abortion - quite simple and safeoperation, but it also has a number of contraindications. In particular, any infectious disease, including mild forms of cold - this is an absolute contraindication against the operation. Also, in some cases, the doctor can determine whether the patient can resort to this method of abortion or not.
