Legal Medical Abortion Services in India

Legal Medical Abortion Services in India

Getting an abortion done and coping with an unwanted pregnancy is a physical and mental agony for the woman. This problem is aggravated in countries like India, where the women are scared. The social taboos prevent the woman from taking timely help. She sometimes does not want to disclose her problem to the doctor, a friend, or a family member. She might also resort to illegal ways of termination of pregnancy and feel scared of revealing the pregnancy and in that process the duration of pregnancy increases, and procedure may become difficult.

Every year, more than 25 million avoidable unsafe abortions occur. Legal restrictions and lack of safe options mean that women and adolescent girls unnecessarily risk their health and lives every day. We believe that everyone has a right to safe and legal abortion in India, products and information, as well as post-abortion care and contraception.

Medical abortion in India is one of the safest and legal abortion options which is performed by well- trained doctors and nurses in our hospital..

Our primary objective is to educate women about legal abortion in India and help reduce the stigma surrounding it. We disseminate information directly to women about legal and safe abortion options, post-abortion care, contraceptive methods and when and where to seek follow-up care. We use multiple media channels, creative technology solutions (like smartphone apps, chatbots and hotlines) and interpersonal communication to educate, connect and combat stigma.

Unwanted pregnancy might happen out of wedlock and the partners might not be ready to continue. It might also happen in a married couple; they might want to discontinue pregnancy because children might be small or there can be financial issues or work issues.

The pressure of having an unplanned pregnancy is not easy to handle, causing mental and physical stress. If she does not make a decision soon then it also leads to a longer procedure for termination:

At our hospital we provide safe and legal abortion options in India.

Medical Abortion in India

Medical abortion in India is the most preferred abortion option that is recommended for the pregnancy of not more than 6-week duration. In general, it is the method for one-month pregnancy abortion.

The procedure involves only medication which must be taken under the guidance of an experienced medical professional. The procedure is surgery-free and hence no anaesthesia is required.

Medical abortion in India is an outdoor procedure. It is a quick procedure and does not require hospitalisation, instrumentation, and anaesthesia. The patient needs to be in touch with the doctor. At our hospital, the procedure is performed in a very professional and systemic way:

  • The duration of pregnancy is confirmed by ultrasound.
  • Detailed medical history is taken.
  • The procedure is fully explained.
  • The medication is provided under medical guidance.

Some important point includes:

  • Opting for the procedure also depends upon the history and medical condition of the person.
  • After the whole process, the patient must visit the doctor for confirmation of the termination.
  • The process is known to give 98% positive results.
  • The person will experience bleeding for a couple of days which is completely normal.

Surgical Abortion

Surgical abortion is another way of terminating the pregnancy.

The products of conception are sucked out by an atraumatic plastic suction cannula under local or general anaesthesia. Post-procedure recovery is quick. Generally, it is a safe procedure and the success rate is very high.

Some important points to keep in mind are:

  • After the procedure, the women may face light pain and discomfort.
  • Nausea.
  • Dizziness and sleepiness because of anaesthesia.

Out of several abortion clinics in Delhi, but undoubtably our abortion clinic is one of the best for legal abortion in India. All procedures are carried out in medically sound conditions and a well-equipped operation theatre. The doctors have years of experience in this field and are one of the profession’s finest. We provides a number of services pre-and post-abortion, such as:

  • Thorough clinical check-up before abortion
  • Proper care of the patient after analysis of their medical history
  • Maintaining confidentiality of the process.
  • Post-abortion counselling, which includes oral medication in case of nausea and vomiting due to the effect of general anaesthesia.

After the abortion, it is normal to feel uneasy for a few days due to medication. If complications arise after a successful abortion, proper guidance and medical care are provided to the patient. In case of any abnormalities in the menstrual cycle and general health, the patient must consult a doctor again after the procedure.
