Happy, healthy patients make American Hospital Bangalore the top choice for medical tourists. We offer excellent medical services, at international standards.
Our competent team of medical practitioners and aiding staff offer the following medical pregnancy termination services:
Abortion with Pills – This is the preferred method for most of the women coming to American Hospital. At the same time, it is the most used abortion procedure all around the world. The reason is that it eliminates the use of surgical instruments and is non-invasive.
Its simplicity is preferred by doctors as well. However, bear in mind that this procedure can be carried out only until the pregnancy reaches seven weeks. After that term, other abortion options are available.
The first step after checking in to the American Hospital Bangalore for an abortion procedure is for the doctors to carry out a series of tests. These are to ensure you are not allergic to any of the excipients or that you have no medical problems, like blood clotting.
The second step is the administration of mifepristone. This is a tablet, which you take orally. You are afterwards discharged and allowed to go home. The next day, bleeding similar to your menstrual cycle will begin, while feeling minimal discomfort or pain.
However, this is not the end of the procedure. The third step is to take a set of pills, previously given to you by your doctor. These are called prostaglandins. They induce cramping, allowing the body to eliminate the fetal remains in your uterus.
The bleeding is often similar to that of your normal menstrual cycle. However, do not disregard the possibility of higher blood quantities, or a higher frequency. Also, the bleeding period could last up to seven days. After it is over, the procedure is considered completed.
D&C Abortion – Another common procedure is the D&C abortion. This represents the dilation of the cervix and suction of the uterine content. It is normally chosen for pregnancies at least seven weeks old, but no more than twelve weeks old.
As for the pill abortion, a series of test will be conducted, in order for the doctors to make sure this is the best option for you, health-regarded.
The first advice you will receive from the gynecologist and doctors is not to eat anything a few hours prior to the procedure. It is important, in order to have an empty stomach during the abortion.
You will undergo a few important tests as well, which allow the doctors to perform the procedure. An anesthetic will be administered, to make everything painless. The next step is the dilation of the cervix, followed by the suction process of the uterine content. It is a short procedure, not taking too much time.
Once the suction process is over, the doctor will make sure there is no bleeding. You will be taken to your room, to rest for a few hours and receive fluid and solid food intake. There is one final test, which involves passing urine without any pain. If this is completed, you are eligible for discharge and allowed to go home.
Second Trimester Abortion Procedure – This procedure applies to pregnancies from twelve to twenty weeks old. Extensive care is required for this type of abortion, since the pregnancy is advanced and more developed than in the first trimester.
The first step taken after you check in at American Hospital Bangalore is a comprehensive series of medical tests. They are required to make sure you are in good health and the procedure can be carried out without risk.
This procedure involves the administration of medication that induces cramping and the expulsion of the fetus. It will be followed by the expulsion of the placenta.
Painkillers and antibiotics are administered after the procedure, to reduce the discomfort and prevent infection. However, there are cases in which the placenta is not expulsed, even if the fetus is.
This scenario involves risk, and this is why you need a certified medical team around you. If this occurs to you, you will be taken to the operating room, to have the placenta surgically removed.
Post Abortion Care – The team at American Hospital in Bangalore ensures you not only receive the best abortion procedure fitted for your needs and pregnancy age, but also that your recovery is done without any problems. This is why our doctors have conceived a post abortion care program, which ensures the safest and quickest recovery. It is done in order for you to resume your daily activities right the next morning.
The follow-up of the abortion implies our doctors checking your progress, being available to help you and solving any complications or situations that may occur.
