Brief Answer:
Please elaborate.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.

Please let me know why do you need to terminate the pregnancy and if there are any associated complications.

Hysterotomy is suggested as the last resort if everything else fails in terminating a pregnancy. This is because of the blood loss, recovery time needed and also the risk for future pregnancy.

Hope I have clarified your query. Please feel free to contact for further information. I will be happy to help.

regards,

So you mean hysterotomy can cause heavy blood loss, require more recovery time and have a risk for future pregnancy?

Brief Answer:
Yes.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing back.

Hysterotomy-
1. Can cause more blood loss as the uterus is not in labor and hence has thick musculature.
2. This leads to longer recovery period as compared to other procedures adopted to induce an abortion.
3. In case another pregnancy is planned in near future, the chances of abnormal placental presentation are higher owing to scarring.

Hope this helps.

Hello,

Thanks for sharing your health concern with us.

As you are not planning another pregnancy, please opt for permanent sterilization if possible. There is nothing to worry if you do not have another pregnancy.

Hope this helps.
