I'm 8 weeks pregnant but the doctor says that there is no heart beat and that I need to go by the abortion process, is there a way she's wrong?

I'm 8 weeks pregnant but the doctor says that there is no heart beat and that I need to go by the abortion process, is there a way she's wrong?

Probably not: I am very sorry about your receiving this news. If you are not tremendously obese, it is relatively easy with ultrasound imaging (should be imaging not just blind Doppler listening) to determine that the heart isn't beating. Under those circumstances, it is safer to undergo a controlled abortion. Without that you will likely soon miscarry anyway. I am again very sorry. ...Read more

I'm having an abortion tomorrow and wanted to know how long does a medical (abortion pill) process take?

4-6 hrs usu: Tomorrow you will get mifepristone, the abortion pill which will end the pregnancy (but not cause it to pass). Then 24-48 hours later you will use misopraostol, which will cause it to pass. This gives bleeding/cramping and can last 4-6 hours. Reply if you need more specific info. ...Read more

What are the effects of inserting cytotec (misoprostol) to vagina in terms of abortion? Will the process be more effective?

Yes: A lot of doctors and clinics have insertion of Cytotec (misoprostol) as part of their protocol for a medical abortion in addition, of course, to mifepristone. It does add effectiveness for the procedure. As your dr. Likely told you, Cytotec (misoprostol) causes smooth muscle contractions and helps to expel the pregnancy and decrease bleeding. Hope all goes well, good luck. ...Read more

Could you tell me what happens during the local/general sedation process of an abortion ?

Abortion anesthesia: Local anesthesia involves injecting a numbing medication into the cervix. For abortions performed under local anesthesia, the patient remains awake and aware. General sedation is usually IV medication used to put the patient temporarily asleep so that they are unaware while the procedure is performed. Either way, after anesthesia, the uterus is emptied. ...Read more

I had an abortion almost 3 years ago with surical process.now i repair my hymen.can a doctor tell that i was peragnent or had an abortion.

Why do you ask?: To reveal to anyone else that you had been pregnant, against your wishes, would in the US be a grave violation of a physician's code of ethics. If you are in an country where a physician may be asked to "certify your virginity", you have my profound sympathy, and I hope that your question alerts my peers in the US to wrongs done to women in such places. I hope things work for you. ...Read more
