What is an Electric Vacuum Aspiration (EVA)?
Electric Vacuum Aspiration (EVA) is a safe and very similar method to Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA). EVA can be used for pregnancies in the first trimester, and/or early second trimester (up to 15 weeks’ gestation). EVA can be performed by a trained provider in a clinic or hospital.
During the procedure, the clinician uses instruments, including an electric vacuum suction, to remove the pregnancy from the uterus. The primary difference between an EVA and MVA is that electricity is used to create suction to remove the pregnancy.
Clinicians may often use EVA when the gestational age increases past 10–12 weeks. As the gestational age increases, it allows the clinician to perform the procedure more quickly than in an MVA, thus decreasing the procedure duration for the woman. Another significant difference is that there is noise associated with the EVA machine because it uses electricity.
