Abortion is the right of the pregnant woman in India unlike many countries like Ireland where abortion is not legal. Many states in America also do not allow aborting the foetus. Due to the adverse sex ratio, India implemented the Preconception and Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques Act in the year 1994 to prevent female foeticide. Checks and balances have been created under this act between the right of a woman to abort the unwanted pregnancy and the practice of selective abortion of the female foetus. Pregnancy upto 12 weeks can be aborted by the choice of the pregnant woman at any registered centre under the MTP Act. Pregnancy of 12 weeks and more but less than 20 weeks can be aborted at special MTP Centres where 2 or more gynaecologists would certify the reasons for aborting the pregnancy. Pregnancy of more than 20 weeks cannot be aborted in India.
Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) or Abortion as it is more commonly known can be carried out through the use of medicines which can be prescribed only by a registered gynaecologist in cases of early pregnancy. However if the pregnancy exceeds 8-9 weeks as established by an ultrasound study then the pregnancy can be aborted by a surgical procedure called Dilatation and Curettage (D&C). In this procedure the patient is admitted in day care and the foetus is aborted using medicines. The gynaecologist then clears the uterus of any products of conception by dialating the cervix and using a curette to clear the uterus. The procedure is carried out under anesthesia and the patient is discharged from the hospital on the same day.
Dr Subhash Singh is one of the best doctor whom you can trust when you decide to discontinue your pregnancy. She will not only perform the procedure but will counsel you about the physical and emotional consequences of this decision. The cost of MTP is Rs. 4000-5000 which includes the cost of the medicines and the ultrasound which is needed to determine the gestational age of the foetus. The cost of D&C would be Rs. 15000 in daycare which includes the cost of the surgeon and the anesthetist. In many cases where abortion has been attempted at home a followup D&C might have to be carried out if the ultrasound reveals that products of conception remain in the uterus. Brightstar hospital is registered under the MTP Act and the PNDT Act to carry out Abortions till the 20th week.
