Scraping of a dead pregnancy
Unfortunately, pregnancy does not always end with the happy birth of a baby. In some cases, for one reason or another, the embryo ceases to develop and dies. The death of the fetus before the midwinter week is called a frozen pregnancy. One of the ways to treat such a pathology is curettage or scraping of the woman’s uterine cavity.
Scraping as a method of treatment of a stunted pregnancy
In the first weeks of prenatal development, an undeveloped pregnancy often results in spontaneous miscarriage. To stimulate the rejection of the fetus, specialists can prescribe medications. This is the most optimal and sparing for a woman the development of events. Nevertheless, sometimes the fetus may linger in the body of a woman, thus causing various inflammatory diseases and concomitant complications. To preserve the reproductive function of the future mother, doctors are forced to resort to certain methods of treating this pathology.
Most often, doctors prescribe scraping with a stiffened pregnancy. Although the name of this procedure sounds rather menacing, the operation itself passes quickly and does not bear heavy physical consequences for the patient’s health. This method of treatment is used by physicians up to 12 midwifery weeks of pregnancy.
