Safe abortion procedure options according to World Health Organization (WHO)
Abortion is considered safe when it is performed by a team of licensed and trained medical professionals following the standard operating procedures (SOPs) and guidelines for medications, equipment, methods and related facilities issued by the World Health Organization (WHO).
At American Hospital, Bangalore, all these prescribed guidelines are followed. The WHO has prescribed three safe methods for abortion according to the gestation length, i.e., the period of pregnancy.
Safe and legal abortions at AHB are conducted by these three methods following the length of your pregnancy and other medical conditions:
1. Medical abortion:
It is a non-invasive method of abortion prescribed safely only for early-stage abortions, as early as 6 weeks of gestation.
It involves the oral (sometimes, vaginal) administration of safe abortion pills that trigger an abortion and empty the uterine contents naturally.
Abortion pills that are prescribed for safe abortions are Mifepristone and Misoprostol.
In pregnant females, the hormone progesterone is released which is essential for the growth of the fetus.
Mifepristone is an anti-progestin medicine that blocks the action of progesterone stopping the growth of the fetus.
Misoprostol, the second pill is administered after Mifepristone to bring the uterine contractions that can lead to the expulsion of all uterine contents.
Abortion pills can be administered for you at AHB after the required medical tests. It is advised to take abortion pills only as and when prescribed by the gynecologist specific to your case.
Abortion pills taken without the supervision of the gynecologist at an MTP Certified Hospital carries serious risks, including excessive bleeding and incomplete abortion.
2. Vacuum aspiration (VA):
It is a safe abortion method prescribed for pregnancy terminations between the gestation age of 6 to 14 weeks.
When suction is applied to evacuate the uterus of unwanted gestation products, the abortion method is known as vacuum aspiration.
In case the aspiration is done manually using a hand-held aspirator, the method followed is known as Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA) or Manual Suction Evacuation. It can also be done by Menstrual Regulation (MR).
If the suction apparatus is used to create suction utilizing an electric pump, the method applied is called Electrical Vacuum aspiration (EVA).
At AHB, all surgical abortions involving vacuum aspiration are performed using sterile equipment in hygienic premises.
At AHB, surgical abortion through vacuum aspiration is a short-duration procedure and usually takes between 3 to 10 minutes for completion.
The advantage of using vacuum aspiration method of abortion at AHB over the medical method of abortion using pills is minimal bleeding and there is no incomplete abortion, which is a possibility with pills.
3. Dilatation and Evacuation (D & E):
D & E is a simple surgical abortion procedure performed for terminating the pregnancies that have progressed beyond 14 weeks but are still legal, i.e., up to 20 weeks in normal cases and up to 24 weeks in prescribed cases under special circumstances.
The procedure is carried out under anaesthesia and takes less than 30 minutes for completion.
Since the procedure involves surgical intervention, safety concerns are most with these procedures and shall be performed with great caution and precision.
It is necessary to get such procedures conducted only at certified MTP centres by trained and experienced gynaecologists.

Abortion Patient Review and Experience
In India, pregnancy terminations are governed by a set of laws
The laws are framed by the Indian government, commonly known as the MTP Act, 1971. The clauses under this law have been updated time and again, the latest being MTP Act, 2020.
As a part of the MTP Act, in India, any unwanted pregnancy can be terminated only by a trained and registered medical practitioner only at a government-approved and certified facility for abortion known as Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) centre.
The legal framework intends to provide Comprehensive Abortion Care (CAC) services making all abortions safe and legal abortions.
Any woman, married or unmarried can get an abortion in India under several circumstances, such as:
- The pregnancy was unplanned and has resulted due to the failure of contraceptives, either devices or methods.
- In events when the ongoing pregnancy poses a threat to a woman‘s life or has the potential to hamper her physical and/or mental well-being.
- There is a substantial risk that the to-be-born child is born with physical or mental abnormalities.
- If the resultant pregnancy is an outcome of rape or unwanted sexual intercourse.
- In events where the mother is mentally incapable of childbearing.

Avoid the risks, side effects and complications of unsafe abortions
Safe abortions can save lives. Most abortions when performed following the safety terms are safe. Yet there can be a variety of complications that vary from woman to woman. Only experienced professionals can deal with such situations to ensure a safe recovery post-abortion.
At American Hospital, Bangalore, rather than dealing with treatment for abortion complications, we strive to prevent the occurrence of any such critical situations. Unsafe abortions can occasionally face complications leading to morbidity and can even be fatal.
Some risks, complications and side effects with unsafe abortions are:
- Incomplete abortion
Abortion risks and complications are avoidable and can be prevented by Safe Hands
The most important thing is that all these complications are avoidable with complete medical check-up before the abortion procedure.
Most of the complications arise due to the wrong choice of abortion methods.
For instance, if late-term abortions are performed by the medical method of abortion using pills, i.e., when the gestation age has progressed far from the prescribed length of pregnancy, the chances for incomplete abortions get accelerated. And finally, a surgical abortion will have to be performed.
There can be complications due to unhygienic pieces of equipment used during the procedure or unhygienic facility, laundry, etc.
All these can be prevented by having an abortion in a completely sterile facility with properly sanitized equipment and taking care of antibiotic medications both during as well as after the abortion procedure.
In events where surgical abortion is to be performed, if the uterine perforation is done by an untrained professional, the loss can be permanent. There can be a complete loss of fertility or even life.
At AHB, we believe, “Every abortion should be a completely safe abortion.”
As far as surgical abortions are concerned, we have the best abortion team in India with extensive experience and expertise in the domain.
Our safety procedures, world-class facilities and the best technically qualified medical professionals make us the top rated and best abortion centre in India.
We also keep our team ready for any emergencies like that of blood loss and hence, we are closely associated with various reputed pharmacies and blood banks to ensure there is no delay in treating any medical emergency.
Besides avoiding abortion complications during the procedure, there are several abortion risks and side effects that can be prevented entirely only if you:
- Do NOT perform self-diagnosis and try performing an abortion at home. No abortion cost is above your life.
- Do NOT buy abortion pills or MTP kits from any pharmacy or online pharmacy without prior consultation with the doctor/gynaecologist. It is illegal as well as you may face unwanted consequences.
- Do NOT visit a quack or an uncertified abortion centre. You are exposing yourself to an unsafe abortion the abortion cost of an unsafe abortion may never be recovered.
- Do NOT visit an uncertified abortion centre due to privacy concerns. American Hospital, Bangalore ensures completely safe and confidential abortions.
- Do NOT obtain a procedure from any doctor who is not MTP Certified.

Step by Step abortion care starts before an abortion and lasts post-abortion
Women seek abortion options as soon as they receive the news of an unwanted pregnancy.
It is the responsibility of the consulting doctor to ensure the woman’s optimal health starting before the abortion and lasting until complete recovery.
At American Hospital, Bangalore, we follow specific step by step guidelines to ensure that you have a safe and speedy recovery after abortion.
We take notes of the medical history of the woman to prevent the use of any medicines she is allergic to or the ones that may be contraindicated along with co-prescription if any.
Certain tests and scans to ensure the exact length of pregnancy and its location are determined before an abortion that avoids complications like that of ectopic pregnancies.
Any pregnancy that does not get planted in the uterus is called an ectopic pregnancy and it can be life-threatening. Hence, ectopic pregnancies need immediate surgical abortions.
Ascertaining the subtle method for abortion also falls under the pre-abortion care
At AHB, before prescribing any method of abortion, the ultrasound scan is done to precisely calculate the gestation length which may be miscalculated otherwise and confirm whether the pregnancy is intrauterine or ectopic.
At AHB, ectopic pregnancy abortions are performed by surgical methods without any delay to avoid any risk to patients’ lives.
During an abortion procedure regardless of the chosen method, some medicines to avoid any infections are administered.
Complete monitoring of the vitals is done throughout the procedure so that necessary action be taken in case of any emergency.
After the abortion, medicines for pain management, restoring urogenital flora and avoiding infections are administered.
