Surgical abortion is usually a minor operation. Depending upon the duration of the pregnancy, the following types of surgical abortions are performed:
Dilation & Curettage
Before your surgical abortion, your gynecologist is likely to explain you everything about the procedure during the consultation. After analyzing your health and the status of your pregnancy, the doctor may also give you some instructions on how to prepare for the abortion.
Few things that you need to take care of while preparing for the day of your surgical abortion may include:
Lastly, but most importantly, be mentally prepared for the abortion. It is important to take it easy!
The post-surgery situation is different for every woman; while someone might return to daily work life within a day or two, others might take a longer time.
In the days following an abortion, a woman may feel drained and tired, physically and mentally. Hence, both physical and mental care is necessary post-abortion.
After having an abortion, a person’s progesterone and estrogen levels gradually drop down, which causes low moods. Anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders are common mental issues during the post-abortion phase.
To settle down with the emotional changes, take adequate time off work. Speak to family members and friends who you trust. Don’t carry the feeling only within yourself.
Recovery after a surgical abortion is not tough but might not be easy too. But, it is different from person to person. Recovery may take longer for late-term abortions. If complications develop, recovery can take several weeks.
As per the Indian Abortion Act, abortion is determined as permissible until the woman is in 20 weeks of pregnancy under the following situations:
Surgical abortion or in-clinic abortion is permitted at a licensed clinic under the following conditions:
According to medical reports, surgical abortion is successful in more than 98 percent of cases, while only in 2 percent of the cases, women may need another intervention or a repeated surgical procedure. Advantages of surgical abortion may include:
The disadvantages of surgical abortion weigh much lesser than medical abortion, some of which are:
The answer to this shall be different for all. Usually, surgical abortion does not cause any pain since the whole procedure is conducted under the influence of anesthesia. But after the effects of anesthesia wear off, women may feel abdominal cramping and pain, the intensity of which may differ from one to another. No one can definitely tell how intense the pain would be.
The fetus does not feel any pain during an abortion because neither the nervous system nor the external wall of the brain of the fetus is completely grown until the stage where abortion is legally permitted.
Surgical abortion is a one-day procedure which means you can head home after taking a few hours of rest after the surgery. You should aim to take 1-2 days of rest and allow the body to heal from the surgery and the bodily changes that take place. You can resume light work by the second day and gradually move on to doing regular work.
After a surgical abortion, you may have cramps and light bleeding for up to 2 weeks. Most women can return to normal activities 1 to 2 days after the procedure. But mild spotting can occur anytime within this duration.
Surgical abortion is an effective procedure that completely removes the fetus from the uterine lining. Once any of the surgical abortion methods is performed, you shall no longer remain pregnant as the fetus gets completely detached and destroyed. But in rare cases, if any remnants of the fetus still remain within the uterus, the gynecologist shall repeat the D&E procedure to evacuate all the remaining tissues.
An incomplete abortion is the partial expulsion of the components of pregnancy within the first 20 weeks. An incomplete abortion may be identified by vaginal bleeding accompanied by abdominal or pelvic pain.
The risks and complications in surgical abortion are very low with not more than 3 percent, which depends on how far the woman has been through in her pregnancy. However, reported complications of surgical abortion may include:
The effectiveness of surgical abortion is much higher when compared to medical abortion. Surgical abortion is performed under the complete supervision of a trained gynecologist and medical staff. However, if cost is to be considered, medical termination of pregnancy is much less expensive than surgical abortion.
In India, as per the Abortion Act, the pregnancy of a woman who is above 18 years of age can be terminated with only her consent. If she is below 18 years of age or mentally ill, written consent of the guardian is required.
You can abort a pregnancy with surgery once you are at least 7 weeks through.
Abortion may have distinctive social, psychological and mental side effects on a woman. Guilt and regret of killing a life, depression, worrying about not being able to conceive again, eating disorders, and self-destructive behaviors are some of the commonly reported psychological side effects of abortion.
You can conceive again really quickly after an abortion. An egg can be released from the ovary as soon as 8 days after the surgical abortion which means you could become pregnant again before your next period.
No, most general health insurance plans in India do not cover the expenses of an abortion. However, several maternity health insurance plans cover the cost of abortion in India.
Having a surgical abortion does not usually affect or lower the chances of getting pregnant in the future. But if the uterus is injured or if the surgical abortion causes any kind of infection in the womb is not treated properly, it may cause some risk to future pregnancies.
For a safe surgical abortion, the first and the most important thing is to choose a safe and licensed clinic for abortion. A clinic is considered safe for abortion if it complies on the following medical, ethical and social grounds:
On medical grounds, abortion is considered safe, if:
On ethical grounds, abortion is considered safe, if:
A certified healthcare centre that meets the above-mentioned criteria can be deemed fit for having a safe abortion. Though a short-termed procedure, if not conducted safely, it can adversely affect the reproductive health of the female and impact her future pregnancies. Hence, choosing a safe clinic for abortion is crucial not just for the procedure but also for a healthy future.
The Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act (MTP), 1971, allowed medical abortion up to 9 weeks of pregnancy and surgical abortions up to 20 weeks of pregnancy. But, the Medical Termination of Pregnancy (Amendment) Bill, 2020, increased the time within which a woman can undergo an abortion and also regulated the conditions under which the surgical procedure could be carried out. While the MTP Act, 1971 required the opinion of one doctor if the abortion was done within 12 weeks of pregnancy and two doctors for abortion within 12-20 weeks, the amended bill allows advice of one doctor if abortion is done within 20 weeks of pregnancy and advice of two doctors in certain cases between 20-24 weeks of pregnancy.
The amendment in the bill also recognizes that unmarried women are entitled to seek a legal abortion.
Unmarried Indian women are legally entitled to receive a medical abortion. However, those below the age group of 18 years require consent from their guardians. Unmarried women can seek legal termination of pregnancy under the following circumstances.
If the woman is unmarried and 18 years or older, the doctor needs only her consent in writing. If the unmarried woman is below 18, the doctor needs written consent from a guardian before proceeding with the abortion.
