MTP can be planned

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

There is no need to panic here. I understand that your wife is pregnant and that it was unintended, and you do not need the baby now.

Surely, your wife can opt for Both of you could consult a qualified gynecologist or an authorized physician, who can help you with the management plan.

If your wife is pregnant for less than 69 days, she could take oral medications in the form of Mifeprestone and Misoprostol oral tablets on 2 to 3 successive days. Your doctor can chart the actual management plan for your wife. It does not require any hospitalization. A couple of OPD visits to the doctor would suffice.

Both the tablets are prescription drugs. Please get them prescribed by her treating doctor.

I hope this helps you.

Regards,
