MVA Management of Miscarriage Aftercare Instructions

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page document is a take-home sheet of aftercare instructions for providers to give to patients after manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) management of a miscarriage. It discusses what the patient should and should not do for after the uterine aspiration (suction) procedure was performed by their provider in the office. It outlines what they should expect, including cramping and bleeding, normal responses to miscarriage such as sadness or feeling emotional, and when their period will come back. The instructions identify danger signs and symptoms such as heavy bleeding, severe cramps, and fever for which the patient should contact their provider, and provide a place to write down their 24-hour phone number and follow-up appointment information.
