Menstrual extraction is a simple suction technique used to remove the menstrual blood from the uterus on the first day of menstruation. It can remove a fertilized egg from the uterus. It has been used by women who wish to shorten the duration of their bleeding and by women who can't abort legally.
In 1971, members of a feminist reproductive health self-help group, Lorraine Rothman and Carol Downer modified equipment found in an underground abortion clinic that was developed for a new non-traumatic, manually-operated-suction abortion technique. They took the thin, flexible plastic Karman cannula (about the size of a soda straw), and the syringe (50 or 60ml), and added a one-way bypass valve, to fix two main problems. The contraption could prevent air from being pumped into the uterus, and also suctioned uterine contents directly into the syringe, thus limiting the amount that could be removed. They added two lengths of clear plastic tubing, one from the cannula to the collection jar and another to go from the collection jar to the syringe. With this new set-up, the contents of the uterus went directly into the jar, allowing for the extraction of more material, and the two-way bypass valve diverted any air that may have been inadvertently pushed back toward the body to exit harmlessly into the air; this would prevent air from entering the uterus. Rothman and Downer dubbed the new invention the "Del Em." The Del Em made the procedure more comfortable, with personal control of the suction.
Downer considers the teaching and usage of menstrual extraction to be a key radical feminist action to ensure women's reproductive sovereignty.
Do you practice menstrual extraction?
>force a suction tube past your cervix and use a syringe to pull out your uterine contents
Simpler than getting the money to bribe a doctor back when abortion was illegal, this is from before Roe vs Wade
Safer too because you can do it alone so no one could rattle you out to the authorities, and if they did you could say you just wanted to get over your period quick because that's what it does, it sucks menstrual blood and tissue out
>>50930>it sucks menstrual blood and tissue out
Would it be appropriate to feed that to your cat?
What murder charge could apply here anyway?
Murder by getting rid of your own uterus stuff?
Virgin women get periods too.
Yeah, but I don't need to extract it. Why would anyone? Doesn't it need its time? The tissue is semi-attached to the uterus, right? Sounds like accelerating something that can't be pushed…
It doesn't. It can be extracted all at once without problem. Menstruation is nothing but the shredding of the uterus lining, it's supposed to come off.>Why would anyone?
One week of bleeding vs a few minutes, indeed why would anyone?
>>50965>it's supposed to come off.
Yes, but it must need some time.It's like peeling off a scab, it's not good, let it be.>One week of bleeding vs a few minutes, indeed why would anyone?
Seems to agressive.
Have you done it? ._.
It doesn't need any time more than the woman herself is willing to tolerate. If you don't want to do it that's one thing, but other women have done it and got all their flow out in 20 to 30 minutes without problem. For reference:https://www.womenshealthspecialists.org/self-help/menstrual-extraction/
>Have you done it?
No, I have only discovered this technique. But I want to do it.
>>50967>It doesn't need any time more than the woman herself is willing to tolerate
Mmmm, I don't think bodies work that way. But I'm not a doc, so if it works for some, well, good for them. Maybe in the future we'll all do it, who knows.
Physicians offer this service so bodies do work that way. It used to be very used before Roe vs Wade legalized abortion, if abortion is criminalized it will become popular again.
Why are you so aggressive toward women, despite tirelessly stalking them? Did your mother not love you?
They've been at it since the derailed abortion thread was locked yesterday, even though their several posts prior to this one got removed. Just let them seethe.
this looks interesting, could i get it done somewhere? order it off of amazon, maybe?
Forcing a tube into your cervix sounds very painful anon. Also read what they say about the risk of infection. I don't think anyone does this on a monthly basis.
Yeah, this does not seem appealing at all. Periods and cramps suck, but I’ll deal with that.
>>50979>The group found that menstrual extraction was not difficult to learn and that the introduction of a sterile four-millimeter cannula into the uterus was not traumatic because it did not require that the cervix be dilated. There was no cutting or scraping, so simple sterile procedures were sufficient; anesthetics were not necessary; and the suction was sufficient to extract all or most of a woman's flow in around 20 to 30 minutes.
>One frequent objection to menstrual extraction is a fear that the introduction of a cannula into the uterus will cause infections or other complications. Over the past decade, hundreds of women doing menstrual extraction in the United States and in other countries have reported that they do not have more or fewer infections than other women and have noted that the passage of a very small cannula into the uterus does not appear to have any effect on a woman's ability to carry a future pregnancy. It would seem, however, that the primary reason for this excellent safety record is the rigorous selection process any group doing menstrual extraction follows and the care with which the procedure is carried out. Women who have a tendency toward infection probably should not elect to have menstrual extraction. If they do, they take extra precautions. Sometimes a woman who is highly motivated but has a very sensitive cervix chooses to tolerate the additional discomfort in order to have an extraction.
That's what they say. There's no risk of infection if you sterilize the equipment like you should always do and it's not particularly painful because the cannula is very small, that's the point. They do say it's safer to learn from a woman who's done it before but when you need to abort and you're alone you don't have much choice.

>Why Menstrual Extraction (Regulation) or Medical Menstrual Extraction (Regulation)?
>In many parts of the world, countries have significant restrictions on who can have abortions (women whose life is in danger, rape or incest) or having an abortion is outright illegal.
>Menstrual Extractions / Regulation Clinics are legal in thousands of countries where abortion is illegal. They reduce the incidence of side effects, complications and death in thousands of women who have illegal and botched abortions.
>Since 1974 for example, Nepal legalized Menstrual Extraction (Regulation) Clinics. Abortion remains illegal there. Women routinely have the procedure performed either medically or surgically up to 8 weeks from their last menstrual period and in many cases up to 10 weeks.
>There are multiple reasons why a woman would not want her menses to happen during a certain period of time or event such as a wedding, going on vacation, taking a business trip, going swimming, going hiking or on a camping trip, etc.
I for example would do it when I am in a particularly bad mood and I really don't want to deal with my period.
>Menstrual Extraction (Regulation) Is The Answer For Women Who Are Experiencing A Delay In Their Menses Or Want Their Menses To Be Postponed And Return In 4 to 6 weeks.
>What Are The Advantages Of Menstrual Extraction / Regulation or Medical Menstrual Extraction Regulation?
>No driver or escort required>Patient privacy assure>Bleeding generally stops within 12 hours or less after procedure>No anesthesia required>No dilatation of cervix usually necessary>No antibiotics required>No pain medication necessary>Little to no discomfort during procedure>No recovery required>Discharged immediately after procedure>May continue normal work schedule and other activities>May have sex immediately after procedure
>It does not involve the use of dilating the cervix opening the womb) with serial dilators that can cause uterine cramps and discomfort >The use of local anesthesia to numb the cervix is not necessary, and 3) does not cause pain and discomfort during the procedure.
>Some consider the Medical or Surgical Menstrual Extraction process to be an intentional method of terminating a pregnancy. It is clearly not. There is no pregnancy test performed to diagnose if the woman is pregnant.
>Without confirmation of pregnancy, menstrual extraction / regulation allows a woman’s menses to return to normal in 4 to 6 weeks.
In other words it can't be made illegal because it has plausible deniability. You can't force a woman to have her period.
The same can apply to abortion with the abortion pill. A woman can take mifepristone and misoprostol to kickstart her period when it's late. Drastic, but if she really wants to get over waiting her period who are you to stop her?
>>51000>It would seem, however, that the primary reason for this excellent safety record is the rigorous selection process any group doing menstrual extraction follows…
Anon they literally talk about a rigorous selection process, literally telling you it doesn't necessarily apply to regular women.
>Women who have a tendency toward infection probably should not elect to have menstrual extraction.
What is even considered "a tendency toward infection" in this case? We don't even know, because we don't know anything about this "rigorous selection process".
>Sometimes a woman who is highly motivated but has a very sensitive cervix chooses to tolerate the additional discomfort in order to have an extraction.
Doesn't sound very painless. Anyone that has ever accidentally poked their cervix can tell you about it too.
As an abortion method in places where it's illegal? Sure! But as a period extractor it definitely sounds too good to be true. It's not like there is no way to stop your periods anon, it's called hormonal contraception, and although it's not without risks, it seems to be a lot less risky and way better than this.
>>51143>regular women can't pass a rigorous selection process
This is misogyny. You think women are so inferior they can't pass an arbitrary standard in your mind.
>We don't even know
You don't know you mean. Ask a doctor.
>Doesn't sound very painless
Tons of things aren't. Waxing, periods, dieting, none of those are painless. Women do it all the same when they consider the benefit greater than the pain.
>But as a period extractor it definitely sounds too good to be true
Why? It does what it says, extract the period in one go instead of waiting for a whole week. Abortion is only a side effect of the unborn being a parasite on the uterus.
>It's not like there is no way to stop your periods anon, it's called hormonal contraception
If you were a woman, you'd know the pill doesn't stop periods, only makes them lighter at best.
This is such terrible bait, menstrual suppression is widely known, I do it myself because of pcos and there's so many ways it can be done, including the pill (by simply skipping the placebo pills and taking the active ones without pause).
Also taking the bait but "rigurous selection process" literally means these are not just random people, you're assuming it's an "arbitrary standard" with no basis, and YOU don't know the tests performed because there is no public record of the studies. I doubt you yourself have asked any doctor anything since you don't even seem to know how hormonal contraception works.
Replied to your bait just for the sake of any young uninformed woman reading that bs because you're just straight up spreading misinformation at this point.
Any random people can pass the rigorous process, there's no predefined quality that says a random woman can't do things rigorously. Plus they do say the tests performed: observe and repeat without mistake. It's a self-help procedure any woman is supposed to be able to perform alone, stupid.
So I quicky googled "menstrual extraction" and apparently once in a while women end up in the ER after trying this at home.
>Okay, but could it actually work?>No, it wouldn’t. Menstrual blood comes from the womb lining, so hoovering or putting anything in the vagina wouldn’t change the length of your period. The amount of blood that comes out would be the same as what you’d get on a tampon or pad. You can’t speed it up.
(Dr Shazia Malik, an obstetrician and gynaecologist at The Portland Hospital for Women and Children in London)https://www.vice.com/amp/en_in/article/xwn537/period-hoover-menstrual-extraction
>“It’s a terrible, unsafe idea that can lead to severe vaginal injuries and infections,” says Dr. Gupta. “Menstrual bleeding is an active and natural process. It’s not just sitting in the uterus in a pool that can be sucked out. Please don’t even think about it.”
(Adeeti Gupta, MD, a board-certified ob-gyn and founder of Walk In GYN Care)
>Also, for what it’s worth, you can’t “suck out” the uterine lining that naturally sheds when you have your period. “It’s shed due to carefully controlled declines in hormone levels (estrogen, progesterone), which causes a controlled bleed (menses) that the body can tolerate much more effectively than trying to suck it out with a vacuum.https://www.cosmopolitan.com/sex-love/amp27789287/vacuum-period-tweet/
I don't seem to find any actual medical professional supporting this stuff, like with their actual name and clinic.
Same, the first line in >>51144
is especially obvioous.>This is misogyny. You think women are so inferior they can't pass an arbitrary standard in your mind.
What woman talks like this? This is how a retarded moid thinks feminists talk. For being so obsessed with us, they're still too low-IQ and inattentive to figure out how to blend in.
