Although I don’t know when what became popular, the advertisement “Do people today and go to work tomorrow” is indeed deeply rooted in the hearts of the people and can be called a successful media case.
However, is this true? Is it really unnecessary to care and recover after abortion?
Obviously, the answer is no. Today we will discuss the nursing and recovery after outpatient abortion.
Don’t use abortion as contraception,
First of all, we need to remind everyone that abortion can never be used as a contraceptive method.
Abortion includes surgical abortion and drug abortion, which are all ways to terminate pregnancy after accidental pregnancy. What is mainly said here is surgical abortion.
Drug abortion is generally suitable for healthy women who have stopped menopause for less than 49 days and women who cannot accept surgical abortion.
Outpatient abortion is to choose negative pressure suction surgery to terminate pregnancy within 10 weeks of pregnancy. The main principle is to terminate pregnancy in the early stage of pregnancy (within 10 weeks). That is, when the fertilized egg is just beginning to grow on fertile land after implantation, it is uprooted and cut off. A negative pressure aspirator or curettage spoon is used to suck all the land and seeds in the uterine cavity together.
Although the process is very simple, but there are many risks. For example, there may be massive hemorrhage, infection, uterine perforation, cervical injury, etc. It is also possible to have another operation because of intrauterine tissue residue, painless surgery and the risk of anesthesia accidents. Of course, these are all issues that need to be paid attention to during the operation.
However, correct and standardized nursing and recovery are also needed after the operation, otherwise it will affect the next pregnancy, some of which may even be irreversible.
How to recuperate after abortion?
Under normal circumstances, patients will rest in the lounge for 2-3 hours after surgery. However, painless abortion may take longer, because the metabolism of anesthetic should also be considered. However, basically 6 hours later, you can also move down the ground.
This period of activity is very necessary, can discharge the blood accumulation in the uterine cavity, reduce the risk of infection, at the same time can find some postoperative complications in time, if there is a problem, it will appear at this time.
Of course, activities should also be carried out according to one’s own situation. There will definitely be various discomforts at this stage, so the company and comfort of family members play a vital role.
Can I go to work the next day?
Not recommended. It is generally recommended that patients rest for one to two weeks. Proper activities are required during this period, but strenuous physical labor or exercise should be avoided.
In addition, also take anti-inflammatory anti-infection drugs, mainly in order to reduce the risk of infection during the recovery of the intima. This step is very critical, because after abortion because inflammatory infection caused by intrauterine adhesions may lead to infertility. Therefore, we will suggest patients to review one month after surgery, if there is a problem can be handled in time.
I saw many boys accompanying their girlfriends to check the situation in the clinic. Many boys feel very sorry for their girlfriends (although, they are a little late), so they will look for various ways to make up for them and hope to make great efforts in diet.
In fact, the diet after abortion is basically normal and light. In addition, add some [nutritious] foods, such as foods rich in protein and vitamins.
In fact, with the current living conditions, basically eating casually is over-nutritious. Therefore, it is good to have a proper amount, not to go too far.
However, if the patient bleeds too much during the operation or is weak, it is necessary to pay serious attention to diet. In addition to the necessary high protein and vitamins, trace elements, such as iron, should be supplemented. At the same time, the intake of fruits and vegetables should be sufficient.
In addition to the anti-inflammatory and anti-infectious drugs recommended above, it is also necessary to maintain hygiene.
The wound surface after the operation presents an open state, this time it is easy to cause infection because sanitation is not in place. In particular, there are a large number of resident flora in the vagina, and there may be blood accumulation in the uterine cavity, so try to choose a shower to flush vulva, not to flush the vagina, also can’t sit bath.
If bleeding occurs, sanitary napkins or pads need to be replaced in time, and underwear with better air permeability should be selected.
How long can I have the same room and get pregnant?
Since fresh wounds are easily infected, it is not recommended to share the same room after surgery. Some people will ask, when can what start?
In fact, after surgery or drug abortion, vaginal bleeding is normal for 2 weeks, and vaginal bleeding can be normally shared after 2 weeks. It is suggested to do a good job of contraceptive measures when sharing the same room for the first time, and pay attention to the cleaning before and after sharing the same room.
However, this involves another question, when can what start pregnancy?
Traditionally, abortion should be at least six months after pregnancy. In fact, in the current evidence-based medical research, on the interval time has not found very good evidence. It is generally believed that after abortion, women had better establish a normal menstrual cycle before pregnancy.
If you are really pregnant less than 3 months after the abortion, don’t be too nervous, let alone have an abortion because there is not enough interval.
Any operation is risky, but we should try our best to avoid some foreseeable complications and at the same time, choose the right time to get pregnant again.
Once again, I would like to remind everyone that if they are not ready to have children, they must insist on contraceptive measures.
