I understand that the financial responsibility for emergency medical care not provided at Planned Parenthood is my own. Even if Planned Parenthood refers me to a hospital because of a complication, it will be my responsibility to arrange for payment of necessary fees, and not the responsibility of Planned Parenthood. WHAT TO EXPECT BLEEDING: Bleeding may be irregular, stopping and starting again and may last for 2 to 4 weeks. You may bleed as much as a heavy period, have very little spotting or bleeding, or not bleed at all. You may pass clots from the size of a pea to the size of a golf ball or larger. This is all normal. CRAMPING: Cramping may also be irregular and can last for 2 to 4 weeks. Take medications containing ibuprofen such as Advil, Motrin (600-800 mgs every 4-6 hours), or Aleve (two regular strength pills every 6 hours). (Tylenol is less effective) Heat is also good for cramps – place a heating pad on your abdomen or lower back; or stand in the shower and let warm water run on your abdomen or lower back and massage your abdomen. A warm bath may also help. DIZZINESS/DROWSINESS, NAUSEA/VOMITING: May be due to the sedation and may last for 24 hours following the procedure. Do not drive a vehicle before 24 hours have passed. Try taking a nap and eating a bland, nutritious meal, nothing fried or ** SEE OTHER SIDE OF PAGE FOR FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS** CLIENT CARE AND INSTRUCTIONS * You may resume normal physical activities tomorrow, or as soon as you feel well enough to do so. * DO NOT drive or do anything requiring balance or coordination for the rest of the day if you’ve had IV sedation. * DO NOT put anything in the vagina for 1 week after your procedure.
