Introduction:Unsafe abortions are a serious public health issue in India, involving the expulsion or extraction of the product of conception and causing controversy.Unmet demand exists for a simple, effective early pregnancy termination method that is both accessible and safe. Medical abortion using mifeprostone and misoprostol and surgical abortion using manual vacuum aspiration are two procedures that meet this need.
Materials and Methods:All requirements outlined in the MTP Act of 1972 by the Government of India were followed in this study. On the first day of the medical abortion, the patient was given 200 mg of mifepristone orally. After 48 hours at home, the patient was told to keep using Tab. Misoprostol 800ug vaginally.A 60ml double-valved manual vacuum aspiration syringe was used for MVA. Following the MVA syringe's attachment, the contents were aspirated. Villi on fresh tissue served as proof that the procedure was successful.The aspirated uterine contents were placed on a piece of gauze and examined to determine the gestational sac. Each woman was under observation for at least four hours following the procedure. The vital signs were examined before discharge. Inj. Women with Rh negative blood groups received 300ug of anti-D within 72 hours of the abortion.
