When a female has unprotected sexual intercourse with a male during the reproductive age of her life then pregnancy may happen. The pregnancy may be desired or unwanted and untimely. If the pregnancy is unwanted then the female has all the rights to get it aborted as per the Indian laws. However in order to prevent the social evil of female foeticide, the government had enacted a law called the PNDT Act in the year 1994 which places some restrictions on the abortion of unwanted pregnancies. For pregnancies upto 12 weeks of gestational age, you can get the abortion done at any medical centre which is registered under the MTP Act and has the services of a qualified gynaecologist. For pregnancies between 12-20 weeks of gestational age, the consent of two gynaecologists would be required who would record the reasons for carrying out the abortion before the procedure can be carried out. As per the current laws, abortion beyond 20 weeks of gestational age is illegal in India even in extreme cases of pregnancy caused by rape.
Early pregnancy upto 10 weeks can be terminated with the use of some medications which should be taken only on the advice of a qualified gynaecologist as in some cases this medicine can cause severe side effects. You would experience cramps and heavy bleeding 1 to 4 hours after taking this medication. The foetus gets aborted within 5 hours but may take upto 2 days in some cases. You should get your periods back within 4-6 weeks of this type of abortion. For pregnancy which is beyond the 10 week period you would have to get admitted to the hospital and the gynaecologist will carry out either Vacuum Aspiration or a procedure called Dilation and Curettage (D&C). In Vacuum Aspiration, gentle suction is used to aspirate the foetus and the placenta out of the uterus. The procedure would last for 10-15 minutes and your stay at the hospital would be for few hours. D&C is carried out when the medicines fail to abort the foetus or in cases where the pregnancy is beyond 12 weeks. For D&C you would have to stay in the hospital for one day.
Dr Pushpa Sethi is not only hugely experienced in carrying out this procedure but is also registered under the MTP Act and so is Sethi Hospital. The cost of Medicines and Doctor Consultation for aborting early pregnancy is Rs. 4-5 thousand. For other procedure like Vacuum Aspiration or D&C for which hospital admission is required, the cost would be in the range of Rs. 12000 - 25000. One must never try to abort the foetus without the guidance and care of a gynaecologist as some of these medicines can affect your fertility in the long run. In some cases the abortion is not complete and some products of conception are retained inside which may cause infection in the body. The safe and approved medicines can only be procured on the prescription of a gynaecologist. Any medicines which are being sold illegally can have harmful effects on your health. At Sethi Hospital we offer complete privacy to the female who wants to get the abortion without the knowledge of anybody.
