After A Miscarriage, Do You Have To Curette It?
I want to ask if you have to curettage after a miscarriage when the blood clots have come out so much? whereas I do not hold money for curette for fear that it will be very expensive
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Miscarriage / abortion is the release / delivery of the fetus, placenta, amniotic fluid, and other uterine contents from the uterine wall when gestational age is less than 20 weeks.
Symptoms of a miscarriage are abdominal pain that is heavier than usual, bleeding out of the birth canal, and when it reaches the final stage it can be followed by expulsion of the fetus and other contents of the uterus.
Risk factors for miscarriage are:
Maternal age at pregnancy. The older a person is when pregnant, the risk of pregnancy including miscarriage is also greater. Pregnancy conditions / problems such as blighted ovum, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, etc. good Weak cervical conditions Infection during pregnancy, such as TORCH infection, gonorrea bacteria, chlamydia, etc. Chronic diseases of the mother, such as high blood pressure, sugar, hyperthyroidism, etc. Effects of smoking, drinking alcohol, certain drugs, illegal drugs, etc. If a miscarriage has been confirmed, and it has been confirmed that the tissue has been completely removed and the uterus is clean, there is no need for curettage. However, if it is not clean, curettage or other measures in the context of expulsion of the fetus and other contents (for example, induction with oxytocin) must be done. Because if it is not clean, this can be dangerous for the mother, which has the potential to cause blood clotting disorders.
To ascertain whether a miscarriage has occurred and whether a curettage is necessary, you should consult a gynecologist for direct examination with an ultrasound examination to confirm whether or not a miscarriage has occurred and ensure the degree of fetal release.
Meanwhile, if there has been a miscarriage with / without a curette, the following should be done:
Get enough rest for at least 3 days after the curette to restore your condition and health after a miscarriage. Eat nutritious foods, especially those that contain lots of iron after a curettage. Avoid sexual intercourse for about 1-2 months after a miscarriage or as recommended by the doctor. That's all my explanation, hopefully it helps and is useful :)
