Welcome to Manasvi Maternity Center , a centre of love & care
Manasvi Maternity Centre is a Government approved M.T.P. centre.
If you have an unwanted pregnancy, you can opt for the abortion pill or you may go for a surgical procedure (D&C) in a legalised abortion clinic (Govt. Approved M.T.P. Centre)
The abortion pill has a success rate of about 95% for up to 7 week pregnancy (49 days from the date of the last menstrual period). D&C with an experienced gynaecologist is a safe and reliable procedure. You can go back home in about 4 hours (day care procedure). There is no waiting or anxiety about whether the abortion is successful or not. You feel no pain (the procedure is performed under anaesthesia).
You may undergo D&C up to 12 weeks of pregnancy (from date of last menstrual period). Up to 9 weeks, you may take the abortion pill (although they work best up to 7 weeks). After 9 weeks, D&C is your only option for termination of a pregnancy.
You have to be on an empty stomach (no fluids or food) for 4 hours before the D&C. Please carry all your blood and test reports as well as your doctor’s notes with you on the day of the procedure. Make sure you have an adult companion along with you. Inform your gynaecologist about any allergies or medical condition that you may have. If you are on thyroid, BP, TB or diabetes medicine, please inform your doctor.
Most women would expect something like a normal menstrual period for up to a week. However, the amount of bleeding varies from woman to woman. Some may not bleed at all or bleed very little. If you bleed heavily or for more than 7 days, you should contact your gynaecologist.
On the same day –
You should be on your feet on the same day. If you are very nauseated or giddy, due to anaesthesia (rare), your gynaecologist may give you IV fluids. You can take light meals about 4-6 hours after D&C. You can take a bath and resume your normal activities. However, you should avoid travel and exertion. Try and take as much rest as you can.
The following week –
You may feel weak and may experience some lower abdominal discomfort or heaviness for the next few days. You may bleed for up to a week. You may choose to take rest from work for a week or two to recover your physical and emotional self. You can resume your normal chores. Avoid intercourse till you stop bleeding completely or up to a week, whichever comes later.
• Heavy bleeding
• Prolonged bleeding (more than 7 days)
• Persistent lower abdominal pain
• Foul smelling vaginal discharge
• Fever within 3 days of the procedure
• Missed period (no period for a month after D&C)
Complications from a surgical abortion are very rare in good hands. However, the possible complications are:
• Injury to the uterus or internal organs like the intestines
• Haemorrhage (heavy bleeding)
• Incomplete abortion (some bits left inside the uterus)
• Delayed resumption of periods
• Adhesions in the uterus
Most women can expect a normal period about a month after the D&C or after stopping the pack of birth control pills. However, this may vary from woman to woman. If you have missed your period or got your period too soon, do see your gynaecologist.
You need to abstain for about 7 days after the D&C or after you stop bleeding completely, whichever comes later.
Yes, you should start a new pack of birth control pills in the same cycle, within 3-5 days after the D&C.
Yes, that is a good idea. Speak to your gynaecologist about it. You can have the insertion pain-free under anaesthesia at the same sitting!
