Ths case is equivalent to the case of labor during childbirth so that some bleeding can be observed during the expulsion of the fetus.

Cases Require Abortion
Abortion is not a process to terminate a pregnancy only, it can be used to extract a dead fetus and in some cases it is used to treat and diagnose the uterus. You can read more details about abortion methods in the following paragraphs:
This method is used to diagnose and treat irregular uterine bleeding, or if there is a thickening of the uterus, it can be treated in this way. Where the samples are then sent to the competent department for diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
This technique is used if bleeding occurs outside the menstrual cycle. Where a biopsy is taken from the cervix to determine the location and cause of the bleeding.
This technique is used in the event that there are traces of the fetus inside the uterus after an abortion that may cause disease, infection or bleeding.
Sometimes the placenta membrane accompanying the fetus or part of the umbilical cord remains after birth, as it is better to remove it and clean it in this case, as not removing it may lead to infection or bleeding.
Abortion by vacuum aspiration in Turkey Istanbul
Abortion by vacuum aspiration is one of the methods used in cases of unwanted pregnancies, and the most preferred method is vacuum abortion. It is preferred by both obstetricians and patients because it is more comfortable and less risky than other methods. The recovery period after the procedure is short. Pregnancy of 6-10 weeks can be taken in this way.
After the patient is appropriately positioned and the vagina sterilized, the uterine opening is sufficiently expanded with a speculum and then thin plastic tubes called cannulas are inserted, to terminate the unwanted pregnancy by aspiration method thanks to the negative pressure.
It is considered the most preferred method of pregnancy termination due to its many advantages:
Very little bleeding after the operation.
There is no risk of infection.
The most common questions are will I feel pain during the operation or not, and the answer is, of course, the patient does not feel any pain during the operation thanks to the anesthesia. In abortion, two types of anesthesia are used:
Temporary partial anaesthesia: the patient feels sleepy during the operation and is temporarily unconscious and does not feel pain during the procedure despite his feeling around him, this feeling lasts for about 30 minutes and then gradually returns to consciousness while the place of the procedure remains anesthetized. The patient does not remember anything after returning to consciousness, after which the patient can leave the hospital immediately after the end of the procedure. The cost of this type of anesthesia is low compared to the second type (full anesthesia).
Full body anesthesia: During the procedure, the patient is asleep and does not feel anything until the end of the operation. This type of anesthesia is considered high cost, and the patient cannot leave the hospital after the procedure until the next day.
Both types of anesthesia, the patient must fast before the operation for about 6-8 hours so that he does not feel nausea or fullness of the stomach and discomfort after waking up after the procedure.
