Is Getting An Abortion Painful
Depends : For abortions done prior to 12 weeks of pregnancy, strong pain relievers or a light anesthetic may be used. If you do experience discomfort during the dilation of the cervix or actual scrapping of the uterus, it will be similar to a strong menstrual cramp. After the procedure, you may experience light cramping for a day. If this persists or worsens contact your doctor for re-evaluation. ...Read more
No: EM physicians will not generally do elective procedures like IUD removal in the ED. There are just too many patients and too many unknowns in the waiting room coming in via EMS to do something like that. However, if you go to a small ED at a time when there are few patients, the doc MAY do it for you, but I wouldn't plan on it. ...Read more

IUD: safety ?: IUD's ae not as good at pregnancy prevention as oral contraception. If pregnancy occurs, a third rupture of the uterus is possible, so using a better birth control method is safer. The IUD also does not prevent pregnancies in the tube (outside the uterus), so in this case, oral contraceptives are recommended, or tubal ligation if pregnancy is not desired at all. ...Read more
Varies: Vaginal hysterectomy is generally much less painful than an abdominal hysterectomy because there is no incision in the abdomen.

No.: The major way the iud works is not through aborting conceived fetuses. They both work primarily by thickening the cervical mucus to prevent the sperm from fertilizing eggs. The copper iud has more of a possibility of causing abortion of a conceptus (fertilized egg) than does the progestin iud. But they are not primarily abortifacients. ...Read more
Yes: Deep anesthesia is not needed. All that is required is that the area by pain free so that the appendix can easily be removed. This would probably be done by laparoscopic surgery with the anesthesiologist using a caudal anesthetic, similar to a spinal, where an anesthetic agent is given by needle to the tissue around the spinal cord numbing the lower belly wall. ...Read more
Regret can occur: After any decision a person makes. Decisions that are irreversible may produce stronger regret when regret occurs. If the decision to have an abortion was made with careful rational thought, free from pressure & coercion, it will less likely be regretted.
