Abstract: The relationship between induced abortion and the subsequent development of breast cancer has been the subject of a substantial amount of epidemiologic study. Early studies of the relationship between prior induced abortion and breast cancer risk were methodologically flawed. More rigorous recent studies demonstrate no causal relationship between induced abortion and a subsequent increase in breast cancer risk.
The risk of complications after a miscarriage is rare. However, you can always contact us in case you have more questions or any symptoms. We do the procedure carefully to prevent pain or other risks that can be avoided.
Different epidemiological studies have indicated conflicting information about the association of induced abortion IA with breast cancer risk. A recent meta-analysis with prospective evidences did not support the positive association between IA and breast cancer risk. Thus, we in our meta-analysis study have tried to analyze this specific association.
You should go home and rest after the procedure. Resume normal activities the following day. Avoid activity that causes increased pain. If you receive oral relaxation or narcotic pain medications for the procedure, don't drive a car for eight hours.
If you do not have symptoms of a complication, it is not necessary to have an ultrasound after a medical abortion. By having an ultrasound you can determine whether the pregnancy has ended even a few days after the abortion, especially if you are unsure whether the abortion was successful. Most women do not need any psychological help after an abortion.
Before she is pregnant, her breasts cannot produce milk, as the gland cells are immature and underdeveloped. When she becomes pregnant, estrogen and other hormones flood her system. This results in rapid growth in size, while the internal structure undergoes dramatic change.
Abortions are common in the United States, with an average of 3 out of 10 women in the United States having an abortion by age There are two types: the abortion pill also known as a medical abortion and a surgical abortion. Women can take the abortion pill up until they reach 10 weeks of pregnancy.
Abortion is an issue that can bring out strong feelings in people. These feelings are often linked to personal, religious, and political views that may have little to do with any connection to a disease like cancer. Linking these topics creates a great deal of emotion and debate. But scientific research studies have not found a cause-and-effect relationship between abortion and breast cancer.
The abortion—breast cancer hypothesis posits that having an induced abortion can increase the risk of getting breast cancer. This hypothesis is at odds with mainstream scientific opinion and is rejected by major medical professional organizations. In early pregnancyhormone levels increase, leading to breast growth.
When a procedure is done or medication is taken to end a pregnancy, it is called an induced abortion. A first- trimester abortion can be performed up to 13 weeks of pregnancy. Most induced abortions are performed during the first trimester. A first-trimester abortion is one of the safest medical procedures.
