Menstrual Extraction is similar to the surgical D&C; with the following exceptions: 1) it does not involve the use of dilating the cervix opening the womb) with serial dilators that can cause uterine cramps and discomfort, 2) the use of local anesthesia to numb the cervix is not necessary, and 3) does not cause pain and discomfort during the procedure.
