Will I Experience Pain During the Surgery?

You will be given oral Valium and Motrin, and Lidocaine injection for the procedure.  You will experience cramping during the dilation and suctioning phase of the procedure.  It will be similar to strong menstrual cramping which will start during the last minute of the 3 minute procedure and will subside within 5 minutes after the procedure.  By the time you walk out of the procedure room you should have no more cramping.  You might have occasional cramping the first night after the procedure which should not require any medication stronger than Motrin.
