About MTP

Medical abortion, as the name suggests, is abortion by medicine. It is one of the most popular methods to terminate an unwanted pregnancy until 8-9 weeks.

Typically, the process involves your OB-GYN suggesting you a combination of two drugs- mifepristone and misoprostol. The abortion starts within 24 hours of taking these medicines and takes roughly 7-10 days to complete.

However, please note that you consider MTP only under the strict guidance of an experienced and licensed OB-GYN. It must not be tried alone at home.

Abortion, when done unguided or at a shady unregistered quack, can result in multiple complications and side effects such as incomplete abortion, extensive bleeding, tearing of the cervix, pelvic and urinary infection, nausea, fever, and chills. Data reports more than 10 women die every day because of unsafe abortion in India.

Therefore, if you considering undergoing an abortion, please do not take a risk. We provide free and 100% confidential consultation. Call now to consult online or offline.

Abortion by medicine can only be done if the pregnancy is normal and the gestation period is less than 8-9 weeks. Therefore, to confirm if you can undertake a medical abortion, your OB-GYN suggests 2 kinds of tests:

  • Pelvic Ultrasound: This is done to diagnose the duration and type of pregnancy. That is, if the pregnancy is normal, ectopic or molar.
  • Blood and Urine Tests: These are done to check for any co-morbidities such as anemia, diabetes, low/high blood pressure, or any sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
  • Based on the results of both these tests, the OBGYN suggests the best method to abort.

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 to 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I get an abortion pill in Meerut?

However, even if you get free access to abortion medicine, please do not take it without doctor’s consultation. It could result in unwanted side effects and at times, incomplete abortion.

Who is the best private gynecologist for MTP in Meerut?

What is the cost of medical abortion in Meerut?

Medical abortion typically costs between INR 2500 to INR 7000 in Meerut. However, the specifics may increase or decrease a little depending on your weeks in pregnancy, doctor’s fee, choice of clinic, and any added medicine or procedure if required. To know more specifics, please call us directly.

What documents should I carry to my doctor for abortion?

While considering an abortion, we suggest you carry the following:

  • Your age proof
  • Prior medical health records (especially if you have any comorbidities such as diabetes/ high or low BP, etc.)

How long does it take to abort by medicine?

Abortion by medicine generally takes 7-10 days to complete. However, the duration may also vary a little depending on the type and duration of pregnancy along with the woman’s general health and body-to-body mechanism.

It is important that you stay in touch with your OBGYN throughout this time and report immediately in case of chills, fever, nausea or abnormally extensive bleeding.

Is medical abortion painful?

Yes, medical abortion is generally more painful than surgical abortion. This is simply because abortion by medicine makes your uterus contract and expel the pregnancy tissue more naturally. Based on your weeks in your pregnancy, and general health, you might have moderate to extensive cramping and bleeding for upto 5-7 days.

In contrast, surgical abortion expels the complete pregnancy under anesthesia, and the pain felt is only mild and recovery- quickest.

Would I need bed rest after medical abortion?

Yes. Since the passing of the pregnancy after medical abortion is generally painful and comes with a lot of cramping, nausea, and weakness, it is likely that you would need bed rest. We suggest you rest for at least 5-7 days post-abortion.

Do abortion pills have any side effects?

Yes, but the side effects are not long-term. Mild-moderate abdominal pain, a slight fever, and nausea are common after misoprostol. Soon, these symptoms slide away within 24 hours and the pain fades through after complete abortion.

Please note that, if these symptoms do not end within 24 hours, it is a sign of infection and you must contact your OBGYN immediately.

When can I resume work after medical abortion?

Recovery after medical abortion 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 5-7 days. Let your body heal and recover. Then, as you feel better with time, resume your work slowly and gradually.

When will I resume my periods after medical abortion?

You are likely to resume your periods within 1-1.5 months after medical abortion. However, it may take some time for your periods to stabilize and fall back to their regular cycle.

Can abortion pill affect future pregnancy?

No, unless complications are raised, the abortion pill has no effect on future pregnancy or fertility. It is a highly safe and trusted method of aborting early pregnancies throughout the world.

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 (normal, molar or ectopic pregnancy) 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, while surgical abortion can be done until 20 weeks*
  • Medical abortion cannot be done in ectopic or molar pregnancies, while surgical abortion can be done in either case.
  • Surgical abortion is a slightly invasive, 20-30 minutes procedure, whereas, abortion by medicine is a comparatively simple and non-invasive procedure very similar to a natural miscarriage.
  • While surgical abortion is immediate and complete, abortion by medicine is slower and longer way of passing the pregnancy. It may take 5-7/ 7-10 days to fully abort.
  • While surgical abortion induces only mild to minor bleeding and cramps, medical abortion is comparatively way more painful with intense cramping and bleeding.
  • Abortion by medicine requires an average rest period of 15-20 days before resuming office, while, you can resume office within 1 week post surgical expulsion.

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.

How to prepare for medical abortion?

As you prepare for your medical abortion, consider the following steps:

  • Think thoroughly. See if you are definite on your decision. Once you take the abortion medicine, there is no way to stop the expulsion. Inform your doctor about all your current medications, supplements and allergens. Based on the same, your doctor could decide the best course of action.
  • Carry your age proof. With your above 18 age proof, you would be legally eligible for terminating pregnancy at your own consent.
  • Apply for a leave for a few days from the office and see if someone could help you with house chores. Medical abortion comes with heavy cramping and bleeding. It would be better if you have help.

Precautions after medical abortion

  • Follow your doctor’s advice and prescribed medicines strictly and take a followup ultrasound within 15 days.
  • Use only soft sanitary pads for the passing of the pregnancy and change them every 4-6 hours.
  • You will return to your normal ovulation cycle within 30 days of the passing of pregnancy, that is, you will be fertile again. We advise you use protection as you resume sexual life to avoid any future unwanted pregnancy.

Recovery tips during and after medical abortion

  • Eat a simple, less spicy, and balanced diet for at least the next 2-3 weeks.
  • Drink a lot of water, especially warm water. It will ease the passing of the pregnancy.
  • Include a lot of iron, vitamins, and fiber in your diet to help recover smoothly. You can find these in spinach, beetroot, salad, milk, and dry fruits.
  • Use warm water bags to ease cramping and gently massage downward on your pelvic area to smoothen the expulsion.

When to visit the doctor after undergoing MTP?

Usually, a follow-up visit with your doctor is essential within 15 days of medical abortion. Your doctor performs a pelvic ultrasound to confirm whether the abortion is complete or incomplete during this visit.

Apart from this, you should visit a doctor immediately after medical abortion if you experience the following:-

  • Fainting attacks
  • Severe pain in the abdomen
  • Minimal or no bleeding after taking Misoprostol
  • No period six weeks after the MTP process
  • Excessive bleeding (soaking two thick pads in an hour or two consecutive hours)
  • Usually, the medical termination of pregnancy is a safe and successful procedure. However, in some cases, there may be some side effects. Therefore, you should visit the doctor immediately to avoid further complications in such a case.

Birth control methods to prevent further unwanted pregnancy

Though the abortion ends the present pregnancy, you are likely to ovulate very soon and become fertile again. Therefore, to avoid an unwanted pregnancy in the future, it is important you switch to birth control immediately. You can choose from a variety of birth control methods depending on the regularity of your sexual activities and the desire for future childbirth. Some of the options are:

  • Barrier methods- These are short-acting methods and include condoms and daily contraceptive pills. You can become pregnant again as soon as you stop using them.
  • Contraceptive implants- These refer to the use of Intrauterine Devices(IUD). These are long-acting but reversible options. Once you decide to become pregnant again, you can ask your doctor to remove them, and you will be ready for conception again.
  • Permanent methods- These are ideal for women who have no desire for more childbirth. If so, you can opt between female sterilization or a male vasectomy. These are permanent and mark complete infertility.
