Hello and welcome,
It is indeed unfortunate that this has happened.
Sometimes the cervix
gets closed after an incomplete abortion
and a few bits left inside continue to bleed from the narrow cervix. In this case, an MVA or a check curettage procedure is very helpful.
Sometimes cervix is closed tight and does not open easily so the MVA instrument cannot be introduced inside. This may also happen when the abortion is complete. Hence they want to do a sonar to see if the process has been completed already.
I suggest that if the bleeding is still there, get a sonar done. If there are bits inside a check curettage or MVA may be done after using vaginal misoprostol
tablets to open the cervix. It becomes easier to dilate it after misoprostol administration. If the bits remain inside they may cause prolonged bleeding and also an infection. So please have a sonar done. If there are no bits, there is no need for a procedure and you may come home.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
