Some women choose this route as it characterizes a treatment for miscarriage without raspa.
A woman experiencing a miscarriage can take some form of prescribed medication to miscarry at home. The waiting game before the end of a miscarriage can be very stressful for some women. Hence, they resort to this method of treatment.
Medication treatment allows a woman to have her miscarriage more quickly and in the privacy of her own home. The prescribed drugs help open the cervix (uterine neck) and move the pregnancy tissue out of the body. This tissue includes the developing baby, placenta, and pregnancy membranes.
It usually takes a few hours for this to begin. You may experience pain, bleeding, or clotting, which could last for up to four weeks.
The medication is strictly prescribed by a doctor and is inexpensive, but it has a few side effects. The success rate is 80-90%. But, if all of the tissue does not leave the body, you may still need surgery.
Surgical Management (D&C Procedure)
Dilation and curettage refers to a surgical procedure that manually removes pregnancy tissue from the womb or uterus. The cervix is gently opened or “dilated” first, then a doctor removes the tissue from the womb with suction using a soft plastic tube. This procedure is either performed under anesthesia in the operating room or in the clinic with pain medications.
The main advantage of a D&C procedure is that it allows you to finish your miscarriage experience quickly. Some women prefer not to wait days or weeks for their bodies to miscarry on their own. A raspa takes about 15 minutes, and you can leave on the same day.
