ABORTION SERVICES OFFERED AT BANGALORE GENESIS HOSPITAL
We do not need publicity. The happy, healthy patients American Hospital Bangalore has served are the only commercial we need. We have set international standards which we abide by, offering excellent medical services.
The following medical pregnancy termination services are available to you, thanks to our competent team of medical practitioners and technical staff:
Abortion with Pills – Chemical abortion or abortion with pills is the no.1 choice for women at the American Hospital in Bangalore. Also, it has the highest frequency in abortion all around the world. The main reason is that it isnot an invasive procedure since no surgical instruments are used.
Doctors prefer this abortion method as well. Remember, though, chemical abortion can only be performed if the pregnancy is younger than seven weeks. We do have alternatives if the pregnancy is older than that.
Carrying out a series of tests upon your arrival at the American Hospital Bangalore is the first step of the chemical abortion procedure. They will ensure your health allows the procedure to be performed and that no medical problems or allergies prevent it from being suited for you.
You will then be given a tablet of mifepristone. It is a pill you take orally. You are immediately discharged and allowed to return home. Bleeding will occur during the following day. It should be similar to your menstrual cycle, with minimum pain or discomfort.
On the third day, you will take a new set of pills. This is the third step of the procedure. They are called prostaglandins and they induce cramping and contractions, which help your uterus to eliminate any fetal remains.
The bleeding should continue to be similar to that which you experience during your normal menstrual cycle. However, some women can eliminate higher blood quantities or experience a higher frequency of hemorrhaging. It should be all finished in a maximum of seven days. At this point, the chemical abortion is considered complete.
D&C Abortion – The second abortion option you have at the American Hospital Bangalore is D&C abortion. It involves dilating the cervix and suctioning the uterine content. This procedure is used for pregnancies between seven and twelve weeks old.
A series of tests is required for this procedure as well. They are conducted so that doctors can clear you for the procedure and ensure it is the best option for you.
The gynecologist will advise you not to eat anything for a few hours prior to the abortion. One of the main conditions for D&C abortion to be conducted is for you to have an empty stomach.
You will take a series of tests, in order for the doctors to make sure you are suited for the abortion. After given the OK, an anesthetic will be administered. It eliminates pain and discomfort. The following step is to dilate the cervix, after which the doctors can begin the suctioning of the uterine content. It is a fairly short procedure.
After the suction process has ended, doctors will verify there is no bleeding. You will then head over to your room, in order to rest and recover for several hours. Fluid and solid intake will be administered gradually. You have to pass one final test, in order to be discharged. This consists of passing urine without any pain. If completed, you are allowed to go home.
Second Trimester Abortion Procedure – This procedure is applicable for pregnancies at least twelve weeks old, but not older than twenty weeks. The post-operative care for this type of abortion is more intense than that of the aforementioned abortion procedures. This is due to the advanced pregnancy you carry, it being more developed thanin the first trimester.
A comprehensive series of tests will be performed upon your arrival at American Hospital Bangalore. They ensure your overall health is good and you are eligible for this type of procedure, without any health risks.
Medication will be administered, as a first step, to induce cramping, aiding the expulsion of the fetus and of the placenta, afterward.
The gynecologist will give you antibiotics and painkillers after the procedure. They are necessary to prevent infection and reduce pain and discomfort. There are cases, though, in which the placenta is not eliminated, even if the fetus is.
This is the main scenario prone for risk, and the primary cause for which you need a medical team around you. If it occurs, you are taken to the operating room, where the placenta will be removed through surgery.
Post Abortion Care – The American Hospital Bangalore team makes sure they perform the most suited abortion procedure for you. Also, the post-operative care is mandatory to ensure you recover perfectly and fast, at the same time. Our doctors have conceived a custom post abortion care program, which does exactly that. You will be able to resume your daily activities the next morning.
There is also a follow-up program, which implies for you to maintain contact with our doctor after your discharge, in order to provide help if any complications appear.
