About Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP)

Medical Termination of Pregnancy — popularly known as medical abortion and MTP, is a method to terminate an unwanted pregnancy until 7-9 weeks, using medications or a combination of drugs. MTP doesn't involve the usage of anesthesia or surgical procedures and can be done at any registered MTP clinic or hospital.

When MTP fails, miscarriage turns out to be incomplete, pregnancy exceeds nine weeks, or it’s a molar or ectopic pregnancy — surgical procedures are used to remove the embryo and pregnancy tissue from the uterus. Mainly, abortion is done in two ways known as medical abortion and surgical abortion. Which method of abortion is best for you depends on several factors such as the duration and type of pregnancy.

Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) - Diagnosis and Procedure

Diagnosis

To understand the safest and most feasible abortion method for you, the OBGYN suggests 2 kinds of tests:

  • Pelvic Ultrasound: To understand the type of pregnancy and weeks in gestation.
  • Blood and Urine Tests: To check for any co-morbidities such as anemia, diabetes, low/high blood pressure, and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Based on the results of both these tests and your own needs and comfort, the OBGYN suggests the best method to abort.

Procedure

Medical abortion is done using a combination of two medicines- Mifepristone and Misoprostol. They are commonly known as abortion pills/ RU486/ MTP kit.

The first medicine- ‘Mifepristone’ is taken at the clinic. It blocks the necessary hormone for pregnancy and detaches the embryo from the uterine wall. After that, another medicine- ‘Misoprostol’ is taken within 48 hours to cause uterine contractions and slightly open the cervix and help expulsion. It can be taken both- at home or at the clinic.

The passing of the pregnancy starts within 24 hours of taking the second medicine and takes around 7-10 days to complete.

Right after you pass the pregnancy, please arrange for a follow-up. An ultrasound exam must be taken within 15 days to ensure complete abortion. In case the abortion fails or turns uncomplete, surgical intervention is employed.

How long does a medical abortion take?

When can I resume work after medical abortion?

Recovery after medical abortion (MTP) is a very personal affair and differs from woman to woman and case to case. While you can continue your basic routine, even as you pass your pregnancy, you are likely to feel extensive bleeding and cramping as you do so. Therefore, we suggest you restrict your work for some time and rather rest for a minimum of 10-15 days. Let your body heal and recover. Then, as you feel better with time, resume your work slowly and gradually.

When is medical abortion not an option?

Medical abortion is not an option if:

  • You do not have regular/emergency access to your doctor and cannot do follow-ups.
  • Your weeks in pregnancy are more than 8-9 weeks.
  • You have an ectopic pregnancy (a type of pregnancy where the fetus develops outside the uterus).
  • You have molar pregnancy (a type of pregnancy where the male and female eggs fertilize incorrectly and develop into a non-cancerous tumor instead of a healthy baby).
  • You have an intrauterine device (IUD).
  • You have a blood clotting disorder (coagulation disorder)
  • You are allergic to the medicines used.

Which is better- abortion by medicine or abortion by surgery?

Both medical and surgical abortions are safe ways to terminate an unwanted pregnancy. However, which is best for who, varies from case to case and primarily on your type and weeks in pregnancy, general health, and personal choices. Therefore, to know what would work best for you, discuss individually with your OBGYN.

However, standard differences between both are as follows:

Medical Abortion

    • Can only be done until 8-9 weeks
    • Cannot be done in ectopic or molar pregnancies
    • Simple, non-invasive, and very similar to a natural miscarriage.
    • Slower and longer way of passing the pregnancy. May take 5-7/ 7-10 days to fully abort.
    • May require 15-20 days of rest before resuming office
    • More painful and intense cramping and bleeding

Surgical Abortion

    • Can be done until 20 weeks* [consult our doctors to know more]
    • Can be done in either case
    • Slightly invasive 20-30 minutes surgical procedure
    • Terminates pregnancy immediately.
    • Mild bleeding and cramping
    • May resume work within 1 week.
