Welcome to Manasvi Maternity Center , a centre of love & care
Manasvi Maternity Centre is a Government approved abortion centre.
Do you have an unwanted pregnancy? Looking for a safe abortion? Indian abortion laws permit abortion (surgical or using pills) only in legalised abortion centres by a registered qualified gynaecologist.
No. You have to first get a pregnancy test done to confirm that you are pregnant. The abortion pill does not work if you are not pregnant and have missed your period due to any other cause.
For early pregnancy (first trimester) up to 7 weeks (49 days from the date of the last menstrual period), the abortion pill is quite effective with a success rate of about 95%. Or you may choose to undergo a surgical abortion (D&C).
The abortion pill is now permitted for use up to 9 weeks (63 days from the date of the last menstrual period). However, the success rate drops after 7 weeks. Also, the risk of heavy bleeding increases as pregnancy advances.
It is better to confirm the size of pregnancy and also make sure that you do not have an ‘ectopic’ pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus - usually in the fallopian tube), before prescribing the abortion pill.
The abortion pill has to be dispensed by or prescribed by a gynaecologist. It is given as two courses – one pill to be taken orally immediately and the other 4 pills about 48 hours later orally or vaginally. After the course of medication, you would start to bleed within about 24-72 hours. The bleeding may last from 3-10 days for most women. The flow could be medium to heavy, and may rarely become severe. Pain is usually quite bearable. Ask your gynaecologist to prescribe a pain-killer or you could take any OTC brand that agrees with you.
You need to do ultrasound of the pelvis after about 2 weeks of taking the abortion pill to make sure that the abortion is complete.
Yes, you do. Even if you have had heavy bleeding, that does not ensure that the abortion is complete. Ultrasound can pick up very small retained bits of tissue that may cause infection or bleeding if left behind.
If the abortion pill has failed (no bleeding or incomplete abortion), your gynaecologist would advise you to get a D&C done or give you another course of the abortion pill. That decision would be your doctor’s only.
The abortion pill is generally very safe. Very rare cases of allergy can happen as with any other drug. You may feel giddy or nauseated after taking the first or second course of the abortion pills. Some of you may get acidity or loose motions. Heavy bleeding is somewhat common. Be prepared in case you are going to be at work. Rarely, the bleeding may be severe enough to rush you to the hospital. Infection is possible, but is again rare. Your gynaecologist would decide if you need antibiotics along with the abortion pill, or later.
No. If taken as prescribed, and under supervision of a gynaecologist, you are very safe. Make sure you do your ultrasound after 2 weeks to confirm an empty uterus.
It is best if you do not indulge in intercourse after taking the abortion pill, till the abortion process is complete. There is a small risk of infection. After you have stopped bleeding and the gynaecologist has confirmed on ultrasound that your uterus is empty, you may resume your sexual life with proper birth control!
You may start the birth control pill pack immediately after the abortion process is confirmed complete.
