Wetin be the Side Effect of Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA) Abortion?

Most women go experience bleeding and cramping during and after Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA) abortion.

Some women no go bleed at all and some fit experience bleeding wey resemble menstruation after MVA. Any amount of blood fit dey normal, except TOO MUCH blood (That is, when four pad soak within two hours). We advise say make you use sanitary pad instead of tampon/menstrual cup as e go dey easy to monitor the amount of bleeding wey you dey get.

E also dey common to experience many different emotion after surgical abortion, all of dem dey normal, and if the woman feel like say she need extra help, make she go for counseling. [1]
