I appreciate your query.
As per your description, what you had was an incomplete abortion
It is very common that the major products of conception that is the fetus ( baby ) with the gestational sac
( the bag containing it ) gets expelled ( removed ) through the cervix
However, some amount of retained products of conception ( the membranes, placenta or the surrounding tissue that supports the baby ) must have stayed within the uterine cavity
However, if the cervix is open ( the os - mouth of the cervix ) is open, then it is easily possible to remove the products through that.
As has mostly happened in your case, you recently took the pills, so the cervix was open, and the doctor must have removed the remaining products of conception manually ( with an instrument ) through the cervix.
If some days had passed, and the os of the cervix closes down, you would require a D and C ( dilatation and curettage
). That is , under anesthesia
, the cervix would be dilated and the remaining products removed.
Hence, you are lucky that manual removal was possible in your case.
However, do visit your doctor for a check up after two weeks to confirm that the process is now entirely complete.
Hope this was helpful.
