What is Medical Termination of Pregnancy?

Medical termination of pregnancy or medical abortion is a procedure to terminate or end a pregnancy using medicines. Medical abortion involves two different medications instead or surgery to end a pregnancy. Pregnancy requires a very high level of progesterone hormone. The medicines involved in this procedure black the action of progesterone and stop the pregnancy from progressing further. A medical abortion can be carried out as soon a pregnancy is detected and carried out until the 8th or 9th week of pregnancy.

Medical abortion is a low-risk, non-invasive method to terminate a pregnancy that is effective almost in 99 percent of pregnancy cases. According to a report published by Science Direct, 3,90,928 MTP were reported in India (April 2018–March 2019), giving an estimated abortion (spontaneous + MTP) rate of 2.84 per 1000 women of reproductive years (15–49 years).

What happens in MTP?

The process of having a medication abortion involves the following steps:

The gynecologist begins the whole procedure by conducting a consultation wherein a clinical assessment of your health is done. The doctor will also conduct a few blood tests and ultrasounds to determine if you are fit to get the MTP done.

Since abortion is very sensitive decision, before conducting the medical abortion, the gynceologist shall give you all the information about the procedure and how it can impact your life, to help you make you make an informed decision. The doctor will also guide you about the pain involved in the procedure to prepare you better.

Once you are ready for the abortion, the doctor will ask you to sign a consent form that will have all the relevant information about what to expect after the abortion and how to take care thereafter.

After the formalities are done, the doctor shall give you a Mifepristone tablet, which is the first pill of the two abortion pills used for medical abortion. The tablet can be taken either at home or at the doctor’s clinic. Mifepristone works by blocking the action of progesterone to cause the pregnancy to stop progressing.

After 24 to 48 hours of taking the first pill, the second tablet, Misoprostol. Misoprostol softens the cervix and helps to push out the pregnancy.

The abortion is completed within the next few hours of taking the second tablet. After the second pill, you will experience heavy painful bleeding that is likely to last from a few days to 1 or 2 weeks. You may see large blood clots (up to the size of a lemon) or clumps of tissue along with bleeding. The cramps and the bleeding is usually very heavy and the process is very similar to an early miscarriage.

Note: If you don’t have any bleeding within 24 hours after taking the second medicine, misoprostol, call your nurse or doctor.

How to prepare for medical termination of pregnancy?

If you have decided to end your pregnancy, many things and questions are ahead of you. You need to consider a lot of considerations before you decide. According to medical experts, the following tips can help you prepare for a medical abortion emotionally and physically:

  1. Educate yourself about medical abortion – Knowing about medical abortion and how it can terminate your pregnancy is the first step towards getting prepared for it. Speak with your doctor about the procedure and how it can impact you physically, emotionally and mentally. Discuss the changes your body will likely go through during and after the medical abortion.
  2. Find the best doctor for abortion and a licensed clinic – Although abortion is one of the safest routine medical procedures, not everyone is allowed to perform it, and neither it can be done at any random clinic. If you have decided to end your pregnancy, it is important for you to find a gynecologist certified to carry out the abortion and a clinic licensed for the same. The CDC reports that fewer than one woman for every 100,000 dies if professional performs legal abortions. The same toll can massively increase if abortion is not performed by a trained doctor.
  3. Don’t expect to have any right feeling about the decision – “There is no right way to feel about it. It is a different experience for every different person,” says Gillin Dean, M.D, Senior Director of Medical Services at Planned Parenthood of America to SELF. Terminating an abortion leads to a gamut of emotional outbursts in women; most of the times, they are different from one another.
  4. Open up to people you want to – Keeping a baby or ending a pregnancy should be your decision alone. You may sometimes feel like shouting from the rooftops in guilt but the best thing to do is confront only a very few people. Too much advice can often lead to making a wrong decision. As with any other major medical decision, this information is entirely your business, and only you should get to decide who to share that with.

After taking the second tablet, you may experience the following:

  1. Nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fever, and headache
  2. Severe abdominal pain along with bleeding that is usually stronger than regular
  3. After two to six hours, the bleeding usually settles to the level of your normal period
  4. The bleeding and the cramps are likely to stop on its own after 4-10 days
  5. Spotting in between your cycles for the next few weeks
  6. The medications and the feeling of ending the pregnancy may give rise to strong emotional outbursts in you.
  7. After the procedure, a person’s usual menstrual period should return in 4–8 weeks. However, they may have irregular spotting or bleeding initially.

How to recover after MTP?

In the days following an abortion, a woman may feel drained, physically and mentally. Hence, both physical and mental care is necessary post an abortion.

Physical Care

  1. Get someone (a friend or a family member) to care for you after the procedure. Do not indulge yourself in any strenuous work.
  2. Try these to reduce the abdominal cramps:
  3. Use a heat pad
  4. Gently massage the stomach and the lower back
  5. Over-the-counter pills to relieve pain (seek doctor consultation before)
  6. Attend the follow-up consultations to make sure you are doing fine

Emotional Care

After 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 yourself with the emotional changes:

  1. Take adequate time off work.
  2. Speak to family members and friends who you trust.
  3. Don’t carry the feeling only within yourself.

Recovery after a medical abortion is not very complicated. But, it is different from person to person. Recovery may take longer for late-term abortions. If complications develop, recovery can take several weeks.

Being new to Hyderabad, luckily came to know about Doctor Puneet (Vascular Surgeon - Diabetic Foot care) through Google (Good) Reviews.Hospital was good with multi specialist doctors. Clean environment with seating facilities, restroom, drinking water. Receptionist, nurses, pharmacy staffs were so kind & helpful. As far as i know, it is Walk - In to meet any Doctor (First cum first served). Hospital is equipped with latest technology medical machine.Met Dr. Puneet Joopali for Diabetic Vascular issue for my elderly MIL. We were very happy & satisfied after consulting Doc. He speaks well, highly knowledgeable, easy to converse, explains well. Met him again to clear a doubt even without an appointment. He was kind enough to explain. I got his number & consulted him for general medical advice. He instantly replied over message. Very difficult to find doctors of this type who are easy to approach & get best advice.For Diabetics, Dr. Puneeth directed us to Dr. SVP Reddy. He was also easy to talk with, consulted well & with his medication sugar level is under control.Only one disadvantage we felt was that the prescribed tablets were Hyderabad manufactured & they were available only in hospital pharmacy. We couldn't get it in outside big pharmacy in Hyderabad city. Thanks to both doctors and also Max health Staffs.

It was my first ever dental treatment. I have multiple problems of yellowish teeth, swollen gums and cavities. I got my teeth cleaned, gum surgery was done and cavities were filled with high quality cement. It was quite a great experience being treated by Dr Manjusha madam. She made me feel comfortable. The treatment was painless. I would recommend this clinic if you have any kind of dental problems.
