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:
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.
Certified Female Gynecologists
A surgical abortion is the procedure that ends a pregnancy by removing the pregnancy tissue (the fetus and placenta) from the uterus. There are two types of surgical abortions, namely Dilation and Evacuation [D&E] and Dilation and Curettage [D&C].
You can get in touch with Pristyn Care and consult our Gynecologists in Visakhapatnam for a safe and risk-free abortion.
In Our Doctor's Word
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.”

Yes, when performed by a specialized OB-Gyn and under strict medical supervision, abortion is one of the most common, safe, and minimal risk procedures. However, it is equally or more dangerous when done by non-verified methods/ untrained doctors or under unhygienic spaces. Reports state, more than 10 women die each day because of unsafe abortion methods in India. Therefore, it is essential you realize the risks of unsafe abortion and seek only professional medical support for termination.
An 8-week pregnancy is safest aborted by surgical termination.
We understand the fear and hesitation around abortion. But we also understand its need. Therefore, Pristyn Care hospitals provide you with a safe space to get abortions done privately in Visakhapatnam. Our doctors are specialized female OB-GYN registered under the MTP act and we are licensed to perform abortion until 20 weeks. We offer you 100% privacy and confidentiality through and through. Rest assured, no information concerning you/ the surgery shall ever be divulged to anyone else except you or your authorized friend/ relative.
No abortion itself leaves no scar. It is done through a suction-like effect across the vaginal route which naturally contracts post a few weeks, thereby leaving no scar.
No, surgical abortion is a painless procedure as it is performed under anesthesia. However, as the effects of abortion slowly end, you might experience a little pull, emptiness, and moderate pain around your lower pelvic area. However, this is absolutely normal and shall subside within a few days with your doctor’s prescribed post-care medicines.
A surgical abortion is typically a very quick procedure performed in under less than 60 minutes. However, counting the additional time for a few formalities, anesthesia, the procedure itself, and a little rest, your total time in the hospital may run around 3-4 hours.
No, a hospital stay is not needed after surgical abortion. You can leave home the same day. However, in some rare cases/ complications, your doctor may recommend a 1 day stay to observe any post-procedural health fluctuations.
Because surgical abortion involves way less post-surgical bleeding and marks quicker recovery, you can most possibly rejoin work within 1 week. However, since every person is different, and so is the body’s reaction to pain/ recovery, it also depends on case to case and the kind of work you do. (Desk job/ sedentary work may be rejoined within 1-2 weeks, however, physically strenuous work may take longer).
Yes, absolutely! Abortion does not affect your fertility at all. Right after your doctor surgically expels the fetus and the uterus cleanses itself of its lining, you will start to ovulate again soon and become fertile. Therefore, rest assured, there will be no complications in your second pregnancy. However, to avoid any unwanted pregnancy, we suggest the use of birth control such as condoms, IUD, or tubectomy. Depending on your needs and personal preferences, your doctor can suggest the best method.
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:-
A follow-up exam is done usually about 2 weeks after the surgical abortion. The exam may include the following:-
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.
Surgical abortion is considered the best method to terminate an unwanted pregnancy when MTP fails or pregnancy exceeds 9 weeks. Following are the best USPs if choosing surgical abortion:-
Also, to recover quickly, you should avoid sexual intercourse for at least 1 week, or longer as advised by your doctor. When you start having sexual intercourse again, make sure you use birth control and condom to prevent infection.
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:-
Apart from all that, the OB-GYN may also prescribe certain medicines to treat nausea and vomiting.
After undergoing a surgical abortion, you should follow all the instructions given by your OB-GYN.
Also, you should talk to your doctor about what to expect at home after undergoing a surgical abortion.
You can follow these instructions:-
You may experience certain symptoms after undergoing a surgical abortion, including irregular bleeding, spotting, and/or cramping for the first 1-2 weeks. Some women may have cramping such as menstrual cramping for as long as 6 weeks.
