I had an abortion when I was about 8 weeks pregnant. Just before the procedure I was asked if I would mind having another procedure performed on me called chorionic villi sampling (cvs). They said it was to train one of the doctors, who was being overseen

In brief: Cvs is prenatal test

Cvs is genetic test for birth abnormalities that can be done at earlier stage of pregnancy than amniocentesis.
--8wks vs16wks.

In brief: Thank you

Cvs is a delicate procedure used to obtain placental tissue from an embryo/fetus to analyze for chromosomal abnormalities.
Your willingness to have someone attempt or learn prior to your procedure is how docs obtain their skills. Thank you for helping train a new colleague & for future patients who benefit from cvs. It shouldn't affect you at all & you wouldn't have noted any difference.
