Surgical Abortion Procedure

Diagnosis

The OB-GYN recommends pelvic ultrasound to confirm the duration and type of pregnancy (such as normal, ectopic, or molar pregnancy.) In addition, the OB-GYN also recommends blood and urine tests to check if you are anemic or have any other medical conditions, such as diabetes, high/low blood pressure, or sexually transmitted diseases. This helps the doctor ensure there is no risk of complications during or after abortion.

This helps the doctor ensure there is no risk of complications during or after abortion.

When medical abortion fails, pregnancy exceeds nine weeks, or miscarriage becomes incomplete, the obstetrician-gynecologist uses surgical instruments to end the pregnancy.

First, the obstetrician-gynecologist gives anesthesia to the patient. Due to anesthesia, the patient doesn’t feel pain or discomfort during the entire surgical abortion process.

During the process, the OB-GYN dilates the cervix, places a small suction tube inside the uterus, and uses the suction to remove embryo and pregnancy tissue from the uterus altogether.

In Our Doctor's Word

Dr. Amrita Singh

"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.”

What Is The Need For Abortion?

Abortion is a safe method for abortions performed only by skilled gynecologists. Many women and couples choose to undergo abortion as a personal choice. Women may choose to undergo abortions if the pregnancy is unplanned, unsupported or if the family is unable to bear the financial and other responsibilities associated with bringing a child into the world.

In some cases, women decide to go for abortions if the pregnancy is harmful for their health. This happens if the woman has diabetes, hypertension, obesity or other medical conditions like ectopic pregnancy (a condition in which the fetus grows inside the fallopian tubes instead of the uterus). Continuing the pregnancy in such cases can have adverse effects on the woman’s reproductive health and can even threaten the woman’s life. Therefore, abortion becomes a necessity in such cases.

Preparation Before Surgical Abortion

Before a surgical abortion, your OB-GYN evaluates your past health, including the medicines you are taking. Apart from that, the OB-GYN may do the following:-

Physical exam, including a pelvic exam to evaluate your health, how long you have been pregnant, the location as well as the health of the embryo or fetus.

An ultrasound to confirm how far along and where the pregnancy is. Your OB-GYN will explain the procedure, possible complications, and when to call your doctor. You may also discuss your decision to have an abortion and your feelings about it. You could also discuss your plans for future pregnancies and birth control use.

Follow-up exam after a surgical abortion

A follow-up exam is done usually about 2 weeks after the surgical abortion. The exam may include the following:-

  • A blood test to check for anemia
  • A physical exam to check the condition of the cervix and the uterus
  • A test to check for human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) levels Apart from all the above, you may discuss the use of birth control. If birth control measures were started just after the abortion, the proper use of the method can be discussed again.

Also, you can ask all the questions that you have to your OB-GYN if you had an intrauterine device (IUD) inserted at the time of the surgical abortion.

Care After Undergoing Surgical Abortion

After the surgical abortion, the OB-GYN will check your vital signs such as heart rate, breathing, and blood pressure to make sure that everything is normal.

After that, the OB-GYN checks the bleeding is not excessive and uterine contractions are normal. The OB-GYN also checks that the side effects from anesthesia are not causing problems.

The OB-GYN may also prescribe you certain medicines. This may include the following:-

  • Antibiotics to prevent infection
  • Medicines that cause uterine contractions to empty the uterus and reduce bleeding.
  • The OB-GYN gives Rh immunoglobulin to all the women who have Rh-negative blood type as it prevents Rh sensitization after abortion.
  • Pain medicines for pain and cramping caused by uterine contractions.

Apart from all that, the OB-GYN may also prescribe certain medicines to treat nausea and vomiting.
