What Happens During the Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA) Procedure?
During a Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA) the clinician uses instruments, including a silent suction device, to remove the pregnancy from the uterus. Most commonly, this procedure is performed using local anesthesia while the woman is awake, and it typically takes between five to ten minutes. Afterwards, the woman can go home. The woman is likely to experience cramping during the procedure, and there may be some bleeding on and off for several days or weeks afterwards .
