the says there is nothing in the uterus
but i stated bleeding since today morning very very very very lightly that to when i pass urine as 5 t0 10 drops only
is this because of the scan will it has effected the uterus lining or cervix did the scan disturb the organs

Hi,

Welcome to XXXXXXX

There can be light bleeding for some time after evacuation. It is normal.

It can also bleed, if evacuation is incomplete. As they have confirmed after scanning that evacuation is complete, there is nothing to be worried.

Scanning generally does't cause any effect on the organ.

Hope, I have answered your query. If you have further query in this regard, feel free to ask, but if you don't require further clarification, please accept the answer and rate it as per your satisfaction.

i had my scan just after 3 days of evacuation .

are there any chances of cervix injury or uterine rupture because of scan since its only 3 days since my evacuation has done

they will dilute the cervix during this procedure how much it would take to cervix come to normal after the procedure

they have done XXXXXXX scanning may be this has disturbed the cervix causing injury?

Hi,

Welcome again,

Placenta is attached with inner side of uterus. During evacuation placenta is also removed. Thus there will be necked surface inside uterus, which can bleed. It takes some time to heal necked inner surface of uterus. As evacuation is complete, there is nothing to be worried about.

External & XXXXXXX Scan, generally does't cause any injury to cervix &/or uterus.

Before evacuation cervix is dilated. It is expected to becomes normal within 24 hours, but inner surface of uterus takes some time to heal.

Please take rest for few days and avoid poses and exercise which increase abdominal pressure.

If bleeding does't stop within a week, please consult your Gynecologist in person for examination.

Hope, you will be satisfied with the answer. If you have further query in this regard, feel free to ask, but if you don't require further clarification, please accept the answer and rate it as per your satisfaction.

i am worried because i stopped bleeding.but soon after the scan it started again
may its because of the scan
so the scan has nothing to do with the bleeding as it does not harm the organs causing damage to them?

what is uterine perforation when is it caused?

Hi,

Welcome again,

Uterine perforation is an emergency. Due to perforation there can be heavy internal bleeding just after procedure. Blood pressure can go sharply down. As there was no bleeding for 3 days after procedure, you should not think about perforation.

As healing is not complete within three days, light bleeding is possible due to XXXXXXX scanning. Please take rest and avoid anxiety. It will heal within few days & bleeding, which is very light, will stop.

Hope, you will be satisfied with the answer. If you have further query in this regard, feel free to ask, but if you don't require further clarification, please accept the answer and rate it as per your satisfaction.
