Surgical Abortion - Diagnosis and Procedure
The obstetrician-gynecologist recommends specific diagnostic tests to ensure that the woman is ready to undergo the abortion. The following tests are done before the abortion.
After performing all the required diagnostic tests, the doctor chooses the best method of abortion and moves ahead with the abortion process.
There are primarily two types of abortion: medical abortion and surgical abortion. The obstetrician-gynecologist chooses the best method of abortion based on diagnostic tests. A medical abortion can terminate an unwanted pregnancy only until 8-9 weeks. It involves using two different medicines called mifepristone and misoprostol.
The doctor gives the first abortion pill (mifepristone) at the clinic, whereas the second can be taken home by the patient herself. Mifepristone blocks the necessary hormone for pregnancy and detaches the embryo from the uterine wall. However, Misoprostol causes the uterus to contract, and the cervix opens slightly to expel the pregnancy.
However, when medical abortion fails, an abortion turns out to be incomplete, miscarriage turns out to be incomplete, pregnancy exceeds nine weeks, or woman has molar or ectopic pregnancy, the obstetrician-gynecologist recommends surgical termination of pregnancy. Surgical abortion is done on an outpatient basis.
Surgical abortion involves dilating the cervix and placing a small suction tube into the uterus. The doctor uses suction to remove the embryo and related pregnancy tissue from the uterus. The doctor first injects anesthesia to the woman to feel minimal or almost no pain or discomfort during the entire procedure.
After that, the doctor removes the embryo from the uterus very smoothly. The entire procedure of surgical abortion takes less than 30 minutes to complete. After a few hours of the process, the doctor discharges the woman from the clinic. The recovery is also quick and comfortable after undergoing the surgical abortion.
The woman can resume her daily life routine within two days of surgical abortion, and complete recovery may take around 7-10 days. However, the recovery time may vary from case to case.
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.”

The womb or the uterus is where the fetus grows. The abortion pill does not cause any damage to the womb. It only destroys the fetus. Abortion pills are safe and effective to terminate a pregnancy. Unless there is a rare complication, there’s no harm to the womb or your future pregnancies from the abortion pill.

To ensure the safety of your abortion, you should keep the following points in mind:-
When you choose to end your pregnancy by either medical or surgical procedure, it is known as medical termination of pregnancy or abortion. Most people in India (especially in rural India) are not even of the fact that abortion is legally permitted in India under certain circumstances. According to the Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) Act of 1971, a female can undergo an abortion from a certified doctor at a licensed clinic until 20 weeks of pregnancy. But at Pristyn Care Lucknow, a female can have medical abortion till 7 weeks of her pregnancy and surgical abortion till the 14th week of the pregnancy.
Irrespective of being married or unmarried, a woman who is above 18 years of age, can undergo medical termination of pregnancy with her own consent in writing. However, if the female is below 18 years of age, the doctor would need written consent from her parents or guardians.
Abortion is a tough decision for every woman. The event hampers the female emotionally, mentally, and physically at different levels. Getting the abortion done at the hands of a doctor who is certified is important. But, what’s equally important is that the doctor is empathetic towards the patient. It is crucial that every female who wants to get an abortion done finds a doctor who can provide emotional care and support to the woman who is looking forward to terminating her pregnancy.
The gynecologists at Pristyn Care ensure complete emotional support and assistance and guide the females for the best possible recovery. Proper counseling is given to make sure the female remains both physically and mentally fit. Our abortion doctors offer the best possible assistance for the female to cope emotionally and physically and help them deal with their situation. Because, we understand that if the mental and emotional state of the female is avoided, there can be serious long-term emotional consequences such as depression, anxiety, stress, insomnia, etc.
Self-care after abortion is very important for both your mental and physical well-being. While the side effects slow down and the surgical scars vanish with the help of medications, the emotional turmoil takes time to settle. Immediately after an abortion, almost all women feel exhausted and unwell. Here are a few things that women can do at their homes, themselves, or with the help of someone to be at their better self:
