Preparing for a Post-Roe America
Hey Christina, we were talking about appropriate follow-up for medical abortion (you wanted a course of hCG studies) and so the following might interest you:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20103453
Let me turn that into a link.Interesting. Given how heavily women often bleed with chemical abortions, keeping them close to home but still monitored sounds like a good idea. Just a couple of concerns:1. I'm curious about the women who were lost to follow up. I wonder why they lost contact, and how they could be encouraged to keep in communication with a care provider until it was determined that they were fully recovered. (Not saying I have answers; just pondering the problem.)2. Are women who don't live within easy emergency transport distance of the hospital their doctor is affiliated with being hooked up with everything they'd need to provide another hospital as far as information should they need to be hospitalized? 3. Would this process work as safely with women who have diagnosed or suspected ectopics?
