User :   not ready financially
User :   my husband is in business and its in initial stages
Doctor :  
please provide your occupation details
User :   my or my husband's
Doctor :  
because as per Indian Govt rules having abortion of a child that is normal and the mother being healthy is illegal and not permitted
Doctor :  
both your occupation details
Doctor :  
there are certain set rules and regulations for this abortion laid in MTP ACT (Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act)
Doctor :  
and not abiding by that will lead to problems for the patient and the doctor performing it
Doctor :  
this is your first pregnancy and you are healthy then its better you continue it
Doctor :  
i deal with infertility cases also, and in my experience, i have seen almost 85% of cases coming to me who have had a history of aborting the first child
User :   bt its an early pregancy and the child is not developed yet
Doctor :  
having abortion leads to scarring of uterus and other pelvic problems which leads to problems in conception later
Doctor :  
who said child is not developed yet?
Doctor :  
it is already a miniature human
Doctor :  
with nervous system and heart developed
Doctor :  
and very much beating and pumping blood
User :   wat are the symptoms to feel this?
Doctor :   do you want to see how developed your baby is?
User :   no
User :   i m just not ready for it mentally as well financilly
User :   so help me out
Doctor :   you will have general symtoms of pregnancy like nausea, backpain due to enlarging uterus, lower abdomen pain

Doctor :  
needing to pee a lot of times due to pressure on the bladder from the growing uterus
Doctor :   i am just giving yu advise to help prevent further complications in life
Doctor :  
as when you really want to have a child and not able to have it then you will remember this day when you chose to kill the baby inside you.
Doctor :   i feel you and your husband both should go for a counselling and continue the pregnancy
Doctor :  
however if you both are very much decided not to continue
User :   yes we have decided not to continue
Doctor :  
then i suggest you to take scan first to see the correct gestation age of baby
Doctor :  
and then meet a gynecologist in your area to get the prescription for medicines for termination
Doctor :  
which will be at your own risk going against the Act
Doctor :  
the pregnancy is to be terminated in these cases: Doctor :  
1)the continued pregnancy would pose a risk of injury to the womanâ??s physical or mental health; or
Doctor :   2)There exists a substantial risk that the foetus would suffer from a severe physical or mental abnormality; or
Doctor :   3)the pregnancy resulted from rape or incest; or
Doctor :   4) would endanger the womanâ??s life;
Doctor :   5)Would result in a severe malformation of the foetus; or
Doctor :   6)Would pose a risk of injury to the foetus.
Doctor :  
As long as the above conditions are fulfilled, a doctor can terminate a pregnancy
Doctor :   A pregnancy can be terminated only with the informed consent of the pregnant woman and her husband if married
Doctor :   and the abortion should be done at a hospital established or maintained by the government and any place temporarily approved for the purpose by the government.
Doctor :   since it is almost 5 weeks old it should be done will be done under general anaesthesia
Doctor :   tablets are available for termination of pregnancy too, but they have their own advantages as well as disadvantages.
Doctor :   disadvantages outweigh the advantages
Doctor :  
and these tablets too should be taken under close observation and supervision
Doctor :  
as they may lead to other complications which may pose a threat to your life also
Doctor :  
in case of termination/abortion in hospital it will require only 1 day admission or a stay upto 6-8 hours until you become stable condition after the procedure to be discharged home
Doctor :  
You will have bleeding for between 3-7days or sometimes more following a MTP
Doctor :  
have you followed what i have said?
User :   yes
User :   as per my calculation its not more then 3 weeks
Doctor :   Report back to your doctor immediately if you develop these symptoms following the procedure. Heavy bleeding, Pain, Fever, Foul smelling discharge, Giddiness, Urinary problems
Doctor :  
you cannot calculate like that
Doctor :  
it has to be calculated based on your period dates, cycle length and ovulation time
Doctor :  
which gives a correct calculation of dates
User :   ok
User :   i m having back ach and leg pain only
Doctor :

Doctor :  
it could be related to your pregnancy itself.
