Good morning ,
Lets start to discuss about your problem.
You are 23yrs old and have a child.You dont want another child.
You want to stop pregnancy
after 3 months and I think it is late decision for ABORTION
if you are carrying 3 months pregnancy.
So I explain you about basic things of MEDICAL TERMINATION OF PREGNANCY including procedures.I think that it will help most.
A) IF A UNWANTED PREGNANCY: what to do??
Terminating a pregnancy is a major decision and an extremely difficult one to make. It is advisable that the woman discusses her concerns with someone close who she can trust.
Termination to be carried out up to 24 weeks of pregnancy, but most hospitals and clinics will not consider termination beyond 18 to 20 weeks. For this reason alone, if a woman is considering termination, then she should discuss the situation with her GP sooner rather than later.
The law states that two doctors need to agree that the abortion can be carried out. They will reach this decision if they believe there is a greater risk to the woman's mental or physical health if she continues with the pregnancy than if she has an abortion. The doctor can also take social circumstances into account when making this decision.
The doctor will then usually examine the woman to determine how long she has been pregnant, and also tell her about the options for termination and the risks involved. The doctor will send this request to the nearest hospital or clinic, which will then make an appointment for the termination to be performed. Many hospitals now have early pregnancy clinics for this reason, staffed by nurses and doctors who will deal with the problems sensitively.
B)METHODS OF MTP: Two methods as follows
1. An abortion pill. This is for pregnancies up to nine weeks old and involves taking two drugs Ã¢ÂÂ called mifepristone and prostaglandin
Ã¢ÂÂ 48 hours apart. These have the effect of causing the womb to contract and shed its lining so that the embryo is lost through the vagina. This can be painful and some women feel sick or have vomiting
with these drugs.
2. A surgical termination can be performed up to 13 weeks. This may be performed under local or a general anaesthetic
. A sterile tube is introduced into the uterus through the cervix. Suction is applied through the tube and the pregnancy terminated. Most women leave hospital on the same day(SUCTION &EVACUATION).
From 14 to 19 weeks the technique is slightly different in that it is known as a surgical dilation and evacuation
where the neck of the womb is stretched open to allow forceps to remove the foetus(DILATION & EVACUATION)
A medical termination can be performed up to 24 weeks. This involves giving the patient a course of two different types of medicine.
The first medicine (mifepristone) is taken by mouth at the hospital or clinic, with the woman returning 48 hours later. She will then be given a medicine called a prostaglandin, either by mouth or as a vaginal pessary.
The termination usually occurs within 12 hours of this when the woman passes the pregnancy vaginally. Pain, is often experienced but pain relief will always be available.
(Surgical termination is also available at the 20-24 week stage although this is more complicated and requires a two-stage process. The first stage involves stopping the heart of the foetus and softening the neck of the womb, and the second stage occurs the next day by surgical evacuation.)
C) COMPLICATION: As Follows
1)BLEEDING for couple of days
2)Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
4)Puncture of Uterus
So you have to decide again and your option is only SURGICAL MTP.
All the best.
