Unplanned pregnancy. Want to go with abortion. Advise? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
Need your advice
How many weeks pregnant is she?
Just missed her period by 3 days as of today
Was the pregnancy confirmed by a pregnancy test?
We did the urine pregnancy test today
Was it positive?
You will have to follow certain measures.
Yes Pls let me know
This is important because, if the foetus is in the fallopian tubes, an attempt to abort may result in life threatening complications.
Once the scan is done, get her to a Gynecologist to see if an abortion can be undertaken as it was an unplanned pregnancy.
It can be done with medication, under guidance as it is in the early stage of pregnancy.
We have two kids and both were through cesarian procedure
You need to tell these details to the gynecologist, so that prevention of further pregnancy can be undertaken.
Have you understood my suggestions?
we are based out of Ahmedabad. Would you be able to suggest a good gynecogist
One of our Customer care executive will give you a call and guide you to a Good Gynecologist in Ahmedabad.

Is there anything else I can assist you with?
If all is well and we can go for abortion, how long is procedure and what is the recovery time in a general scenario
At the present status, she will not have to go for any procedure. The abortion will be a medical abortion. It means, tablets would be given for getting the abortion done.
Within 2-4 days, usually the bleeding starts and then may stay for up to 7-10 days.
Is this a safe method
Yes. It is safe under the care of gynecologist, as pre-evaluation is required.
After what stage would a procedure be required
After around 6 weeks of Pregnancy, usually medical termination is avoided.
What is the probability of the foetus being in the fallopian tubes
It happens in many. So the probability cannot be said.
So an ultrasonography is done to confirm the pregnancy position before giving medication.
After 6 weeks, abortion should not be undertaken?
Abortion can be done up to 24 weeks of pregnancy. But between6-8 weeks and 24 weeks, D&C is the procedure opted.
How long does that procedure take and what would be the recovery time
M sorry for too many questions
D& C would take around 30 minutes to 1 hour. Post procedure, it may take 2-3 hours for complete recovery from anesthesia. And further 1-2 weeks rest would be required.
Is there anything else you would like to know?
When can I expect a call from the customer executive for a reference for gynecologists
You will get it as soon as they are able to locate a doctor for you.
If the foetus is in the fallopian tube, what would be the options
Probably surgery would be the option.
Of course, nothing is above her health
Would that be safe
Yes. Everything is safe if it is done under proper care.
You will be getting the call in the morning tomorrow.
How long would the surgery take and what would be the recovery time
It would be same as for D&C
