Considering an Abortion

Unwanted pregnancy can put a lot of stress on the physical and mental health of a woman. In such situation, Termination of Pregnancy (TOP) or abortion can be a blessing for her. The termination can be safely performed till the end of second trimester as per state Law. There are two types of procedures available for Termination of Pregnancy.

  • Medical Abortion: Use of medicines for termination of pregnancy up to 10 weeks or 70 days.
  • Surgical Abortion: Use of surgical methods for termination of pregnancy.

Q & A Abortion

A: According to guidelines by Food and Drug Administration, these regimens are highly effective and can be used for termination of pregnancy of less than 70 days.
A: Pain associated with medical abortion varies from mild to moderate abdominal pain depending on a person’s pain threshold and the gestational age of the pregnancy.
A: The price of a medical abortion depends on the center where the termination is carried out, the type of abortion that is done and the gestational age of the pregnancy.
A: Most insurance companies do cover medical abortion but it is always important to check with your insurance provider to confirm.
A: Minors generally require parent’s consent, but it’s important to find out abortion laws relevant to your state of residence. California allows minors to have a termination of pregnancy without parental approval.
A: Women who are rhesus negative would need to receive this anti-D immunoglobulin after a medical abortion to prevent miscarriages in subsequent pregnancies.
A: After taking the second tablet, you may feel abdominal cramps and the product of pregnancy starts coming out with blood. This is the normal process. Normally you can take a pain killer and let the pill do its work.
A: Consult your doctor. You may be advised not to take a bath immediately. This is to prevent infection due to water entering the exposed area.
A: You may choose to do so, but remember that it can take 40-60 days before the pregnancy test becomes negative. If you take a test immediately afterwards, you will still get a positive result.
pregnancy test after abortion

A: If you are doing abortion with qualified doctors and nurses, they will always maintain their patients’ confidentiality. There is no need of worry about your information being leaked out.
A: Medical abortion is generally more effective than surgical abortion in early pregnancy.
For pregnancy of less then 7 weeks old, this method will be 98% effective. After that the effectiveness decreases, but still remains as high as 95%.
A: Yes. Mifepristone and methotrexate need some time for their work. Only after that the misoprostol will be effective in expelling all the content. So you need to keep some distance between two pills.
A: Alternative regimens are available, but less used. Sometimes single pills are used but studies have shown them to be 70-85% less effective than the combination.
A: For mild to moderate pain, you can take Tylenol (500-1000 mg). If pain is more you may take ibuprofen (200-600 mg). In very severe cases, codeine may be prescribed. Consult with your doctor.

A: If you have fever, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, lower abdominal pain after medical abortion, you can suspect infection. You should immediately contact a doctor as this is could be a serious condition.
A: If medical abortion fails, it can be followed by repeat medical or surgical abortion.

How this regimen is used (FDA regimen)

It requires 3 days and at least 2 visits to a clinic are required for this method.

Day 1

During initial visit, history is taken and examination of the woman is done followed by pre- abortion counselling and investigations. Once the consent is obtained and contraindications are excluded, a tablet containing 200 mg of Mifepristone (RU-486) is given orally to the woman and advised to re-visit on day 2-or 3

Day 2 or 3

She is given the second tablet containing misoprostol (800 microgram) on day 2 or 3 at clinic. Usually following consumption of second tablet, there will be bleeding from vagina and cramps will be felt in the abdomen. This is due to contraction of uterus and expulsion of aborted products of pregnancy. Antibiotics may also be given to prevent the infection. A pain killer medicine can be given to alleviate the pain.

Follow Up Visit

She is advised to visit on day 15 for re-examination and to ascertain that the abortion is complete. It also gives an opportunity for a doctor to check the health status of the woman. Just like in the earlier regimen the woman is asked for a follow up visit on the 15th day. Call us to find out contraindications of regiment.
