- Medical MTP & Surgical MTP: For 0 to 7 weeks of gestation period, pregnancy can be terminated with the use of oral medication.
- Surgical MTP: For a woman who is in 7 to 12 weeks of gestation period, abortion by surgical procedure is the only option. It is a completely safe procedure performed by gynecologist with several years of practise in the same. It is very essential for a female to choose a certified and registered clinic and an experienced gynecologist for MTP.
- Mini Delivery: Women who are 12 to 21 weeks pregnant have to undergo an abortion procedure called “Mini Delivery”.
The female is given a general anesthesia before the surgery. The female is then asked to stay in a lithotomy position. The doctor then cleans the vaginal area with an antiseptic solution such as Betadine. The gynecologist then positions a speculum into the vagina in order to widely open it up. A hollow tube i.e. cannula is then passed into the uterus. A hollow tube attaches the cannula to a bottle and a pump which provides a gentle vacuum inside the uterus to remove tissues from the inside. A curved surgical instrument called curette is used to gently pull out the lining of the uterus and remove tissues from the uterus during the D&E procedure. The gynecologist then examines to make sure that all of the tissues have been removed and then the procedure is successful.
