  • For a miscarriage? I had one. They put me under anesthesia so I was knocked out during the procedure. I didn't feel anything. After wards I just felt really tired and groggy. Also for some reason I faintly remembered them sticking the tube down my throat. Weird. The first thing I asked is if they stuck something in my throat when I came to.

  • I had one last year. Under general or local anesthesia, the doctor will mechanically remove the contents of your uterus. It isn't extremely painful, but it is uncomfortable. If you want more information, PM me and I'll talk to you about it. I don't want to be too graphic on here.

    I'm sorry you have to have one. I wish you the best.

  • I had one for my Uterine Balloon Therapy, but I was already knocked out because I was also having a tubal ligation at the same time.
