How long does it take for dialation drops to wear off? I had my eyes dialated atound 11 am and its 4:30 pm now and my new contacts are blurry

Several hours: Usually 4 to 6 hours for standard dilating eye drops, but sometimes a eye Doc will use dilating agents that can last for 8-12 hours. This latter agent also will affect focus to a greater degree and make your vision with contacts noticeably blurry. Fortunately the eye drops will reverse and you should be back to normal by tomorrow. If not just call your doc and he/she can advise you. Good luck. ...Read more

How long does the dilation and curettage take?

How long does the dilation and curettage take?

10-20 minutes: It takes longer to prepare than to do. Once you've received a light anesthetic (or local injection) it's under 5 minutes to measure the length of the cervix and dilate it. The curettage part takes another 3-5 minutes. If it's not pregnancy related, a camera (hysteroscopy) can be used to visualize the uterine cavity and this part can more than double the amount of time. ...Read more

39 wk prg, my obgyn did cervix dilation test, n i'm having a bloody show now. Is it safe to take bath? How long bloody show last?

Yes: Some bloody mucus is common after a cervical exam near term. A bath is just fine but be careful getting out of the tub. Falls are very rusky at this point in pregnancy and everyone is more clumsy at this stage. How long the discharge lasts varies. Hope this helps. Best wishes to you and your baby. ...Read more
