MTP, which stands for Medical Termination of Pregnancy, is a method of terminating a pregnancy by the use of medications. It is possible to terminate a pregnancy with medication in the early stages of pregnancy (7-9 weeks); otherwise, surgery is required. Medical termination of pregnancy is permissible in India if the pregnancy does not last more than 20 weeks. Legally, only the consent of a significant pregnant woman is required to terminate the pregnancy; no other person’s consent is required.
MTP is only conducted by trained specialists and gynaecologists since, while the process is minor, the risk associated is significant. It is important to see a gynaecologist because there might be several issues with the abortion, and before proceeding, one must consider all of the risks connected with medical termination of pregnancy. The pregnancy test will be performed initially by the gynaecologist. This test validates the pregnant period. An ultrasound exam is performed to determine the age of the pregnancy and to ensure that the pregnancy is not outside the uterus (ectopic pregnancy) or that it is not a tumour that has developed in the uterus (molar pregnancy). You will also get tested for anaemia, sexually transmitted illnesses, and overall wellness.
If MTP must be performed non-surgically, doctors commonly recommend a medication called Mifepristone (Mifeprex). This pill can be administered orally or intravenously. Antibiotics are also given to prevent infection. Mifepristone obstructs progesterone, and a lack of it damages the uterine lining. This decrease in progesterone inhibits the pregnancy from progressing further. This process, which may take a few hours or days, causes contractions and the foetus to be evacuated. A medical examination is also performed a week later to ensure the complete termination of the pregnancy and to rule out any complications.
