In medical terminology of this kindThe procedure is called scraping, or curettage. It implies the complete removal of the remains of the body of the embryo or fetal egg, if the miscarriage occurred on a very short period, 5-8 weeks.
Do I need to clean after miscarriage and always do it?
After the spontaneous abortion was diagnosed, as indicated by the spasm of the uterus and the appearance of bleeding, the doctor examines the woman in the chair.
In order to examine the uterus, ultrasound is also performed. Obtained data and help determine whether cleaning is necessary for miscarriage that occurred at the beginning of pregnancy.
If to speak, leaning against statisticalData, then in about 10% of cases this procedure is necessary after a spontaneous abortion on a short term. However, it is worth noting that quite often curettage is carried out with a prophylactic goal, because of the impossibility of conducting an ultrasound examination or in the absence of time for it (with uterine bleeding, for example).
In European countries curettage is carried out only in thoseCases where there are symptoms of infection of the uterine cavity, as well as when the pregnancy period at which the miscarriage occurred is more than 10 weeks and after that there is severe bleeding. This preference is given to vacuum aspiration, which in itself is less traumatic for the female body.
Can a miscarriage be without further cleansing?
This question is of interest to many women almost immediately after the onset of miscarriage.
Regardless of the period at which the pregnancy was interrupted, a survey with the examination of the uterine cavity is necessary to make a decision about the curettage.
In cases where there was a complete rejection of the embryo or fetal egg, cleaning is not carried out.
If no apparent abnormalities are detected on ultrasound,A medical consultation may decide to observe a woman for 2-3 weeks. After the lapse of this time, a second examination is carried out using the ultrasound machine. Before this procedure, a woman is usually prescribed an anti-inflammatory medication, which helps to avoid complications and development of infection in cases where small parts of the embryo tissue remain in the uterus. After all, sometimes they are so small that it is not possible to extract them even with the help of a special tool.
Also an important role in determining,If cleaning after miscarriage is necessary, the definition of hCG level, which is always carried out in case of spontaneous abortion, plays. It is this study that makes it possible to determine whether the embryo has remained in the uterus, which often provokes an increase in the level of hCG.
Thus, it can be said that the fact thatWhether to do without cleansing after a miscarriage at an early age or to do it necessarily, doctors decide on the basis of the woman's examination and the data obtained as a result of ultrasound. It must also be said that quite often the curettage itself is carried out much later than spontaneous abortion, when parts of the fetus remain in the uterus cavity, which simply were not noticed by the doctors during the diagnostic activities.
