What is Medical Termination of Pregnancy?

Medical Termination Pregnancy or MTP is the legal procedure for terminating pregnancy using medicines or surgical procedures. MTP in common terms is known as abortion. Abortion using oral medication is feasible only up to 7 weeks of pregnancy.

The decision to end a pregnancy is completely personal. If a female is considering having an abortion, our gynecologists would firstly advise counselling. But if the female still decides to go for MTP, our gynecologists are licensed to perform the surgery.

Abortion (MTP) Faq's

It is not, as per law. However, if necessary, you may approach the courts. Such a request must have solid grounds though. Last year, the SC allowed abortions after the 20-week period because of health risks to the women or serious deformities to the foetus. SC has declined other requests too where it did not find any risk to the life of the woman and the foetus.

By medicines

Typically within 7 weeks: A MTP kit is used which contains one tablet for oral consumption and four tablets for vaginal insertion.

A medical abortion uses a combination of two hormonal drugs – an anti-progesterone and prostaglandin, which can be used through various routes namely by mouth, by injection intramuscularly/intravenously or vaginally.

By surgical means

Typically within 12 weeks: The pregnancy is terminated using a method called suction curettage, which involves the insertion of a small tube in the vagina which is connected to a suction machine. The pregnancy is sucked out in this method.

Typically between 12 weeks and 20 weeks: The method deployed at this time is called dilation and evacuation (D&E). A cervix dilator is inserted in the cervix in order to open it up gently. Once it is dilated, the pregnancy is removed using a suction tube and other surgical instruments.

Junk foods, sugary foods and beverages, should be avoided as these can aggravate the hormonal imbalance in the body after abortion. Also, gynecologists recommend to refrain from eating potatoes, bottle gourd, raw bananas as they have a cooling effect on the body that can lead to fever and chills. For more diet related related queries after abortion, you can contact one of The life Plus Hospital experienced gynecologists.

Yes, usually the bleeding after medical abortion is heavier than normal period and also consists of blood clots to clear out the conception completey. The heavy bleeding can occur upto 2 weeks along with mild cramps. If the heavy bleeding prolongs even after 14 days, immediately reach out to your gynecologist.

After abortion, a new menstrual cycle begins. For the hormone levels and the periods to become normal, it may take 4-8 weeks in total.

If the abortion is carried out in a medically safe way, there are nill chances of adverse effects on the fertility. Therefore, the woman can conceive without any complications in the future.

How does the abortion pill work?

‘Abortion pill’ common includes two medicines – mifepristone and misoprostol, that are used to end or terminate a pregnancy.

The pill called mifepristone needs to be taken first. Mifepristone blocks the production of progesterone, the hormone that is necessary for the development of pregnancy. The second abortion pill, misoprostol needs to be taken either immediately or can be taken within 48 hours of taking the first pill. Misoprostol causes bleeding and cramping and clears the uterus.

The woman is likely to experience severe cramps and heavy bleeding after taking the second pill. Many women consider the pain similar to having a miscarriage. In case the woman does not experience any bleeding or cramping after taking the second pill, consulting with the doctor is very important. The gynecologist will give both the pills at the clinic along with detailed directions on how to take the abortion pills.

Is the abortion pill effective?

Yes, the abortion pill is very effective. But the effectiveness of the pills depends on how far you have come through in your pregnancy when you take the medicine.

  • For women who are less than 8 weeks pregnant, the effectiveness of the abortion pill is 94-98 percent.
  • For women who are 8-9 weeks pregnant, the effectiveness of the abortion is 94-96 percent.
  • For women who are 9-10 weeks pregnant, the effectiveness of the abortion pill is 91-93 percent.
  • For women who are 10-11 weeks pregnant, the effectiveness of the abortion pill is 87 percent.

In most cases, the abortion pill offers effective results. But if it does not, surgical procedures may help in terminating the pregnancy.

What to expect after taking the abortion pill?

The effects of abortion pills are not the same for all. After taking the medicine, you may feel dizzy and fatigued, hence taking proper rest for the next two days is important. In case you feel okay the very next day, there are no restrictions and you can get back to your daily work. But, you should refrain from indulging in heavy work on lifting any weight at all costs.

Bleeding for the initial few hours will be heavy after taking the abortion pill, but that should lighten as the hours pass by. You may experience emotional disturbances and severe mood swings during this time. Additionally, you may experience tender breasts and milky discharge from the breasts.

Other common side effects of taking abortion pills include – nausea, vomiting, fever and chills, which are likely to go away on their own in a few days time. Consult with the doctor if the side effects continue for more than two days.

Who can undergo Abortion?

Women who have conceived accidentally, or are not in a mental and financial position to raise a child can opt for a medically safe way of aborting the pregnancy. Abortion is legal up to 20 weeks of pregnancy. Unmarried adult women can also go for abortion if the pregnancy is unsupported or is a result of sexual assault.

Is abortion legal in India?

Yes, abortion has been legalised in India by the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1971 up to 20 weeks of conception.

In India, abortion is legal only under the following circumstances:

  1. If the continuation of the pregnancy poses major risks to the life of the mother
  2. If the pregnancy is a result of rape or sexual assault.
  3. If the fetus has severe abnormalities.
  4. If the pregnancy is a result of contraception failure. However, this condition does not include married women.

The decision to undergo an abortion lies solely at the discretion of the doctor. An adult woman does not require the consent of her husband or family member to have an abortion.

What happens in D&E abortion?

Dilation and evacuation (D&E) is done to terminate pregnancy of 7 to 12 weeks. The process includes a combination of vacuum aspiration, dilation and curettage using surgical instruments.

  • The gyenolocogist begins the procedure with an ultrasound to determine the duration of the pregnancy.
  • The gyenecologist then inserts a dilator to dilate the cervix. This reduces the risk of injury during the procedure.
  • The doctor will give you a dose of antibiotics and lay you down on a table in a lithotomy position.
  • The doctor will insert a speculum in your vagina and clean the area with an antiseptic solution.
  • You may also be given pain medicine and a sedative.
  • A cannula will be passed into the uterus. You might suffer mild cramps and discomfort at this stage.
  • A pair of forceps will be passed into the uterus to grasp the larger pieces of tissue.
  • Using a curette, the doctor will gently scrape the uterine lining and remove the pregnancy tissues.
  • The suction will then be used to make sure all the uterine contents are removed from the uterus.

D&E is a daycare procedure, completed within 30-45 minutes and is done in hospitals. The patient will be given some medications and shall be allowed to go home after taking a rest for some time.
