What is the Medical Termination of Pregnancy?

Medical Termination of Pregnancy or MTP is the legal procedure for terminating pregnancy using medicines or surgical procedures. Abortion using oral medication is feasible only up to 9 weeks of pregnancy.

The decision to end a pregnancy is completely personal. If a woman chooses to have an abortion, our gynecologists would firstly advise counseling. But if the woman still decides to go for MTP, our gynecologists are licensed to perform the surgery.

In medical terms, the set of pills given is known as “Abortion Pills” or “RU 486”. First, the pregnant woman shall be asked to take a pill called mifepristone. Mifepristone blocks the development of the progesterone hormone, which stops the pregnancy from growing further. The second pill, misoprostol, needs to be taken after some time. The second pill should be taken within 48 hours of taking the first pill. Misoprostol causes uterus cramping and bleeding and empties the uterus. The feeling is very similar to heavy and crampy periods. If no bleeding takes place within 24 hours of taking the second pill, you should call your doctor without delay.

Types of Abortion

There are primarily two types of abortion, medical and surgical. Both these types of abortion are safe and a woman can choose one of them depending on the convenience or how far she is in terms of her pregnancy. There are many women who prefer having medical abortion whereas others prefer having a surgical abortion.

Medical Abortion

Medical Abortion is done using medicines or pills. This method is only available for a woman up to 10 weeks of pregnancy. It involves using two different medicines, i.e., mifepristone and misoprostol. The first pill is given by the doctor in the clinic whereas the second one is taken at home by the patient herself. Mifepristone blocks the necessary hormone for pregnancy and detaches the embryo from the uterine wall. Misoprostol will cause the uterus to contract and the cervix will open slightly to expel the pregnancy. The expulsion will be a painful time as you will experience heavy bleeding with cramps.

Surgical Abortion

Surgical Abortion is done on an outpatient basis and involves the removal of the embryo using specialized instruments like a suction cannula. It can be done at any time until the 24th week. Depending on the time that has passed, the doctor may utilize other methods like dilation and evacuation to remove the embryo.

The surgical procedure of abortion is carried out under the influence of general anesthesia. The patient is then asked to lie in a lithotomy position. In lithotomy position, the patient is required to lie down on their back with the legs flexed 90 degrees to the hips. This position allows the surgeon to extract the fetus from the uterus through the birth canal.

The vaginal area is then cleaned with the antiseptic solution i.e Betadine. The gynecologist then inserts a speculum into the vagina to stretch it wide. The doctor then passes a hollow tube i.e. cannula into the uterus. The cannula is attached by a tube to a bottle and a pump that provides a gentle vacuum to remove the fetus from the uterus. A curved instrument called a curette is then used to gently pull out the lining of the uterus and remove tissues from the uterus. The uterine tissues are removed during the D&E (Dilation and Evacuation) procedure. After D&E, the surgeon thoroughly examines the uterus to ensure that all the tissues are removed completely and safely. The examination is necessary to prevent the chances of the remnant fetus getting stuck in the uterus and creating complications.

Both these methods are completely safe. But it is important that you make an informed decision. You can get in touch with Pristyn Care and consult our gynecologists in Chennai to learn more about the types of abortion and they will help you to make the right choice.

Meet expert female gynecologists at Pristyn Care in Lucknow for safe and legal medical termination of pregnancy

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. Pristyn Care 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.

How can you take care of yourself after an abortion?

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:

  • Eat healthy food and stay hydrated to retain the lost energy. Consume a lot of green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits, and dry fruits and nuts. Avoid junk, sugar-based drinks.
  • Take body massages to reduce pain and cramps. Pure sesame or mustard oil is considered to be highly effective for post-abortion body massage.
  • Use hot water bags if you have abdominal cramps. It can help provide temporary relief.
  • The body gets dehydrated post-abortion. Make sure you drink enough water and healthy fluids to keep yourself hydrated. Drinking lukewarm water may work best for you.
  • Avoid heavy-duty works. Do not indulge yourself in works that require lifting heavy weights, or tasks like squatting to wash utensils and clothes, etc.
  • Surround yourself with people who can help you deal with your emotional stress and post-abortion depression.
  • Take multi-vitamins as per your doctor's advice. This can help you in restoring your lost energy.
  • DO not indulge in sexual intercourse until you completely recover. There might be post-abortion vaginal bleeding
  • Do not panic if you do not get periods on time. After an abortion, the next few periods might be irregular.
