Surgical Abortion Procedure
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 practice in the same. It is very essential for a female to choose a certified and registered clinic and an experienced gynecologist for abortion.
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.
In Our Doctor's Word
15 Years Experience
"Please remember it is your legal right to abort. Do not struggle alone or try aborting at home. It is completely unsafe and the third leading cause of maternal deaths in India. In Fact, traditional methods or home remedies most often result in incomplete abortion and cause serious infections and risk to both- your health and eventual pregnancies. This is also why WHO reports that at least 13 women die everyday in India because of unsafe abortions. So please understand the risks and complications of unsafe abortion and approach a good doctor on time. It is both- your medical and legal right.”
