Question: Will D&E terminate undeveloped embryo?
|CncrndHsbnd - Thu Jan 08, 2009 10:38 pm||
My wife miscarried very early on. She eventually passed some of it, so we went to a doctor and removed whatever may be left by way of vacuum aspiration.
Q: Will vacuum aspiration terminate an embryo that just implanted?
Please answer with great detail.
- certainty of answer
- commonality of issue

aspiration of the contents of the uterus is just that. Evacuation of the lining of the womb. I'm very sorry for your loss. This procedure should not effect future pregnancy.
