The stress, expectation and mental exhaustion makes the woman want to have some rest and even sleep during the abortion just to make time pass quickly, making disappear all the trouble triggered by the unwanted pregnancy.
Nevertheless, sleeping while the abortion is happening may jeopardize the procedure and cause several risks to the patient’s health.
It is vital to remain awake and aware to the different symptoms that may appear in the course of this process and thus, to react properly to them. Amongst these we highlight:
- Feeling cold
- Expelling blood and clots
Regardless of the fact these symptoms are common and expected, the process requires a high level of attention, especially to bleeding, because even if it starts in an intense way, it will gradually reduce. If that does not happen, there might be a chance (even if it is small) of hemorrhage. In such case, it is crucial to be wide awake and able to ask for medical assistance.
Stay always awake throughout the whole abortion procedure.
It would be inconceivable for the woman to lie down while bleeding. The most appropriate thing is to sit down on the toilet and wait.
Lastly, the abortion is characterized by the stimulation of the uterus that, through contractions, induce the expulsion of the intrauterine contents. If you fall asleep, a resting state will take place. This type of state contradicts the stimulation that comes from the abortion, and, as a consequence, the procedure will fail.
Perform your abortion in a good mood, awake and accompanied by a friend. This way, your safety will be assured.
