Women wanting to end an unwanted pregnancy have two available methods: one medicinal, the other surgical. Abortion is a procedure that consists of removing, by means of an instrument known as curette, all or part of an organ from a natural cavity. This method is used in many cases ranging from miscarriage, to a "light egg" or to a voluntary abortion.

If before the intervention was painful and risky, today its postoperative complications are extremely weak. Indeed, voluntary abortion method is performed with tiny gestures and non-cutting tools. Moreover, it is not traumatic for the uterus. As a result, very little postoperative uterine pain can be felt as well as slight bleeding.

All about gynecological surgery

How is a voluntary abortion done?

The voluntary abortion surgery is carried out through an aspiration technique. In fact, the doctor uses a cannula to get into the patient's vagina, to suck the contents of her uterus and scrape the walls slightly to dislodge its contents. The cervix is dilated to facilitate the aspiration of the egg.

The surgical method can be practiced until the end of the 12th week of pregnancy.

It is performed under local or general anesthesia according to the decisions of the anesthetist doctor during an examination scheduled 48 hours before the procedure.

The patient must not drink, eat or even smoke since midnight the day before the abortion procedure. Furthermore, it is performed on an outpatient basis and therefore does not require hospitalization. It lasts about 20 minutes.
