What are The Different Methods of Performing an Abortion?
The different methods available for medical termination of pregnancy are related to each other. The methods can be suggested by the doctor as a standalone procedure or combination according to requirement. The most common methods used for abortion are explained below:
D&E stands for dilation and evacuation. This procedure is done for medical termination of pregnancy in the second trimester, i.e., after the 14th week of pregnancy. This method of abortion is chosen when a woman has to terminate the pregnancy due to severe abnormality in the fetus or some medical problem.
It is done through a combination of two techniques, i.e., vacuum aspiration and D&C. At first, the doctor dilates the cervix and then forceps are used to remove the fetus and placenta with the help of suction. Then a scoop-like instrument called a curette is used to scrape out the uterus lining.
It stands for dilation and curettage. It is a minor surgical procedure in which the cervix is dilated and a curette is used to remove the inner lining of the uterus.
RPOC stands for retained products of conception. It refers to the fetal or placental tissues that remain in the uterus after pregnancy is terminated. It usually happens when the pregnancy ends in the first few weeks. Most commonly, RPOC is required when abortion is done using medicines or pills. If the contents of the uterus are not emptied properly, then RPOC is done using the dilation and curettage (D&C) technique.
Along with these methods, there are other techniques available that can be used for medical termination of pregnancy, such as labor induction abortion and late-term abortions. No matter what method is used for the procedure, there are always some risks associated with it. Therefore, it is crucial that you contact a reliable daycare provider like Pristyn Care and get personalized care under dedicated and professional gynecologists.

Choose the Right Type of Abortion After Consulting A Specialist
There are two types of abortion, medical and surgical. Choosing the right type of abortion procedure depends on the circumstances in which you are terminating the pregnancy.
Surgical abortion involves removing the embryo surgically and it can be done any time until 24 weeks. In the first trimester, the aspiration method is used whereas the D & E (Dilation & Evacuation) method is used after the first trimester till 24 weeks.
Medical abortion involves using two different medicines. The first medicine is mifepristone that breaks down the uterus lining and detaches the embryo. The second medicine is misoprostol which causes uterus contraction and helps in emptying it out. Medical abortion can only be done till 10 weeks of pregnancy.
You will get to know which type is ideal for you after consulting a gynecologist. You can find the best gynecologist with Pristyn Care and visit our clinic in Visakhapatnam to terminate the pregnancy safely.
Surgical Methods Available for Abortion at Pristyn Care
There are several methods available for abortion and each of them has its own specific advantages and disadvantages. The doctor usually makes the decision after evaluating the overall health of the patient and ensuring that the method chosen is safe and effective.
This surgical method involves using a suction device that can safely remove the embryo. This method is preferably done during the first trimester (first 12 weeks) of pregnancy. A speculum is inserted into the vaginal opening and medicine or injection is used to numb the area. Then thin rods called dilators are used to open the cervix and a tube is inserted into the uterus. A manual or mechanical suction device is used to empty the uterus, thereby terminating the pregnancy.
Dilation & Evacuation
This method is used by the doctor for MTP during the second trimester of pregnancy. Anesthesia is used to numb the patient’s body and a speculum is inserted into the woman’s vagina. Dilators are used to expand the cervix. Then forceps are used to remove the pregnancy tissues safely. After this, the rest of the content is removed through suction.
Sometimes, the dilation and curettage (D&C) technique is also used to perform abortion over a two-day period. In the D&C technique, the vagina is dilated in a similar way and a special device called a curette is used to remove the uterine tissue safely.
Many people think that emergency contraception, such as morning-after pills can be used to abort a pregnancy. But these medicines are not meant for abortion. If you are already pregnant, these pills won’t end the pregnancy. The ideal thing to do is to get in touch with an experienced and reliable doctor who understands your situation and recommends the most suitable method for MTP.
