  • It's a medical procedure that is most commonly used when a woman suffers a missed abortion, which is when she miscarries but the baby is still in the womb.

    It's a pretty easy procedure as far as surgery goes, but once you've had a few, they rip your heart out. I've had three and each one was emotionally devastating.
