What is abortion?

Abortion, in the simplest term, is the medical procedure to end an unwanted pregnancy mid-gestation. It is a legally sanctioned option in India for both married and unmarried adult women (18+ years), and you do not need your parent’s/ partner’s permission for it. However, it is permissible only under 4 conditions:

  • Physical and mental health danger to the mother 
  • Chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus 
  • Failure of Contraception 
  • When the pregnancy is the result of sexual assault such as rape or incest

Aborting a pregnancy is a very personal decision. This is why our doctors advise counseling first. However, if the woman still decides to terminate her pregnancy, our gynecologists are medically trained and legally licensed to perform the abortion procedure.

Surgical Abortion - Diagnosis and Procedure

Diagnosis

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.

  • Pelvic Ultrasound:- The doctor recommends this to confirm the duration and type of the pregnancy (normal pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, or molar pregnancy).
  • Blood & Urine Tests:- With the help of blood and urine tests, the doctor detects if the woman has any medical conditions such as anemia, diabetes, low/high blood pressure, or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

After performing all the required diagnostic tests, the doctor chooses the best method of abortion and moves ahead with the abortion process.

Procedure

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

What-Dr. Amrita Singh-Say-About-Abortion-Treatment

Dr. Amrita Singh

MBBS

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.”

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.

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.
