Surgical abortion is most commonly done procedure in India. It is a very safe procedure when performed by a trained medical professional.
A surgical abortion involves the removal of the pregnancy via the vagina by surgical means. Your cervix needs to be prepared I.e ripened before undergoing this procedure. I forgot to mention in video to carry sanitary napkins when you go to the hospital.
Some complications of surgical abortion are:
Excessive bleeding can happen in case of incomplete abortion. Please report to your doctor.
It can be due to incomplete abortion or previous STDs. You will be given a course of antibiotics to avoid infection. In the case of high-grade fever report to your doctor.
- Injury to uterus or cervix:
Very rarely, the instrument may perforate the uterus and cause injury to the intestine or infection in the abdomen leading to peritonitis. Sometimes a repetitive D&C can damage the cervix leading to short or incompetent cervix with the risk of abortion in upcoming pregnancies.
