What is Abortion?

Abortion refers to the termination of pregnancy involving the removal of the fetus or the embryo from the uterus before it is born. Unplanned pregnancy or medical complications in the mother and/or baby may require you to get an abortion.

Abortion is carried out by a gynecologist or abortionist in multiple ways involving medicinal abortion, vacuum aspiration, dilation and curettage, dilation and evacuation, and induction abortion.

Abortion is done after evaluating the patient's medical history, undergoing a physical examination, ultrasound, blood or urine testing, and measuring the levels of beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (beta-hCG) hormones in the blood. Abortion is only advisable until the second trimester. However, if there is a need for abortion in the later stages of pregnancy, you must consult a doctor.

What are the causes of an Abortion?

Abortion is done due to various causes including medical issues and personal preferences. Some of the causes of abortion are as follows:

  • Suspected pregnancy outside the uterus, namely ectopic pregnancy, requires abortion. 

  • Also, if severe medical conditions, including gene mutation, hemophilia, polycystic kidney disease, thalassemia, sickle cell, or Tay-Sachs disease are diagnosed in the fetus or embryo, then in that case, abortion is preferred. 

  • A pregnant woman suffering from medical conditions including uterine fibroids, disabling cervix to carry a fetus

  • Unintended pregnancy or need for a child

  • Reproductive infections

What are the methods of Abortion?

Depending upon the condition of the pregnant woman and fetus, abortion is categorized into the following:

  • Medicinal Abortion: A procedure involving oral and injecting medicines for the termination of pregnancy is termed medicinal abortion.

  • Vacuum Aspiration (VA): It involves gentle suction through small tube insertion into the uterus to remove pregnancy tissues. This is usually done in the first trimester of pregnancy.

  • Dilation and Curettage (D & C): It is cervix dilation with surgical instruments for pregnancy tissue removal. This method is performed during pregnancy's first trimester.

  • Dilation and Evacuation (D & E): During this, the cervix is dilated with surgical instruments, and then applies suction for fetus or embryo removal. This procedure is used during the second trimester of pregnancy.

  • Induction Abortion: The method involving medicine-induced labor leading to fetus delivery is induction abortion, performed during the second trimester of pregnancy.

How to Minimize the Need for Abortion?

The primary reason for abortion is an unplanned pregnancy, and to avoid it, follows these:

  • Use contraception, including condoms, birth control pills, and intrauterine devices, correctly and consistently

  • Must learn sexual and reproductive health education

  • Must have access to reproductive healthcare services for sexual education

  • Follow regular medical checkups to avoid pregnancy and fetus-related problems

What are the Cautions Regarding Abortion?

There are certain risk factors associated with an abortion, and hence, you should avoid undergoing an abortion if:

  • You are in the third trimester of pregnancy

  • You are anemic or have blood-clotting issues

  • Prone to adrenal insufficiency 

  • You use corticosteroids

  • You are allergic to certain medication

What are the Complications of Abortion?

Depending upon the abortion technique and pregnancy stage, abortion may result in the following complications: 

  • Vaginal discharge comprising light or heavy vaginal bleeding occurring intermittently or consistently for a few days to several weeks. Although bleeding is quite common, heavy bleeding is health-hazardous.

  • Mild or severe abdominal cramping is similar to period cramps occurring persistently or irregularly for a longer period.

  • Digestive issues lead to nausea and vomiting, especially before or during an abortion.

  • Women suffer from psychological symptoms, including fear, anxiety, depression, and emotional distress like sadness-cum-guilt before an abortion. 

  • Fever, reproductive tract infection, and tender breasts

  • Circulatory collapse due to uninterrupted blood flow or cardiovascular problem

  • Medical procedure

  • Chances of contracting viral or bacterial infection increase through the instruments used during abortion

  • Perforation of the uterine wall 

  • Allergic reactions and breathing issues may arise due to anesthetic complications

  • Future pregnancy complications such as miscarriage, premature birth, or delivering a weak baby.
