What is Abortion?


What is early pregnancy?

  • Early pregnancy is considered normally when you are in the first trimester or 12 weeks of your pregnancy days where we suggest is a good time to have an abortion which is the safest period. Normally women identify their pregnancy in the first month after they have missed their first period i.e. within 4 weeks.
  • And so your pregnancy days are counted from the first day of your last period.

 

Why do we suggest on getting an abortion done during early pregnancy days?

  • Generally early pregnancy is the time when you have just missed your first or your second period and your body is in the stage of developing your uterus to support the foetus for its proper formation and proper development. The embryo at this moment is not completely formed and it doesn’t have a firm hold on the uterus lining yet. This is the primary reason why most of the miscarriages occur during the first trimester.
  • During your first trimester, the only noticeable part of your pregnancy is the gestational sac which looks like a drop of water like the size of a grape and the embryo is still tiny and microscopic. Abortion if done during this period will not affect you emotionally and neither too much physically.
  •  

Is early pregnancy abortion easy?

  • Yes,  this time is the most suitable for an abortion as during this time the foetus has not formed, the condition of early pregnancy days is similar to the later menstrual days. During your menstrual cycle you happen to shed the uterine lining and during early pregnancy this lining thickens to be known as deciduas which is basically caused due to hormones required to maintain pregnancy and grow the foetus. If you abort during this time the deciduas breaks down and so it replicates miscarriage.

What are the different methods of abortion?

  • Generally there are two methods of abortion one is surgical abortion and second is medical abortion both the abortions are equally safe and secure during the first trimester however, medical abortion is cheaper and more discreet than surgical abortion. The efficacy levels are also the same in both the cases but surgical abortion includes physically scraping of the uterus using tools and administering of anesthesia which is not suggested as this may crop up issues later.
  • World Health Organisation has approved the method of using abortion pills and the procedure to be the safest non-surgical form of abortion.

What are the abortion pills?

Abortion pills are the pregnancy termination pills that help you to have a medical abortion by creating a condition in the body which replicates a natural miscarriage.

How do these abortion pills work?

  • Both the abortion pills can be consumed at home with a glass of water to terminate the pregnancy but on different days and with proper procedure. The mifepristone pill is an anti-progestin pill that stops the pregnancy hormones, progesterone and the estrogen necessary for the development of the fetus. And, misoprostol pills create contractions of the cervix and dilate the cervix so that the entire embryo is expelled out in the form of vaginal discharge. These misoprostol pills shed the uterine linine of decidua that has been formed during the first trimester.
