What happens when a woman’s health becomes a matter of her choice
A New Jersey gynecologist says she has seen a spike in new patients seeking care in recent weeks after a woman had her uterus removed, but she worries that is a false alarm.ABC News: “She’s not a person with a uterus, she’s a woman who wants to have an abortion,” Dr. Jennifer Hitt said.
“She has been told that her uterus is viable.”
Hitt said that women in the New Jersey area who have received the surgery say they have experienced relief from the pain and swelling, and that there are no long-term consequences for the procedure.
However, she said she’s concerned that patients who have not been told they’re pregnant and are not seeking an abortion may be more vulnerable to complications.
“I’m concerned about people who have decided not to have the procedure,” Hitt told ABC News.
“I don’t want to discourage them from having an abortion, but I don’t know how they can be reassured that the procedure is safe.”HITT, who has seen some of the new patients, is concerned that many are just looking for answers about their fertility.
“Many are just like, ‘Oh, I don.t want to think about it, I’ll just have an ultrasound and figure it out,'” she said.
The procedure, called a caesarean section, is a rare procedure that has been performed on fewer than one in every 100,000 women.
Most women have an amniocentesis, which involves a tiny hole in the uterus.
The most common complication of a cae is hemorrhage, where fluid and tissue from the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes clump together.
In rare cases, it can cause severe bleeding.
Hitt is hopeful that new information will lead doctors to better treatments for the new women who have the surgery.
“It’s a lot of information that is available now that could potentially help us to reduce some of these complications,” she said, “but it’s really not the answer for everybody.”
Hipp is also concerned that the surgical procedure can cause women to feel ashamed and ashamed of their reproductive organs.
“People feel they have to look like an object and that it’s shameful,” she explained.HITT has seen women with no history of complications or a history of pelvic pain.
She said she would be happy to provide her patients with information and referrals, but added that if a woman has had a previous caesarian section, they should have the opportunity to talk with their doctor.
Hipp said she feels that the women should have a chance to talk about their decision to have surgery, but also have their options for an abortion.
“We have the right to choose what we want to do,” she added.
“The only way to do that is with the doctor’s permission.”
Hitting the road againIn addition to Hitt, ABC News spoke to several other doctors who were involved in caesarians, including Dr. James D. Buss, a gynecologic oncologist at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
Dr. Baus, who was not involved in the study, said that in some cases, patients with uterine cancer may feel embarrassed or ashamed for not wanting an abortion because of the procedure’s rarity.
“They may not be able to find someone who has done it,” he told ABC news.
“They may feel that they can’t have an open discussion about it with someone, even with their physician.”
However, he said, the procedure can be a valuable part of women’s health care.
“When you’re going to get an abortion in the United States, the cost of the operation is the most expensive part of the abortion,” he said.
“In most countries, abortion is done by a private clinic.
But in the U.S., that’s not the case.
It’s often done by Planned Parenthood clinics.”
Dr. Martin L. Lutz, a professor at Columbia University, has conducted research on caesars and has said that while there is no evidence of a link between caesaring or a caesonectomy and infertility, caesaris are sometimes a sign that a woman is at risk of having a baby with the uterus removed.
Dr Lutz also told ABC that a caesar may not even be necessary for some women.
“If a woman finds herself in the position of having an ectopic pregnancy, the caesar can be used to prevent it,” Dr Lutz said.
