If you are pregnant and unmarried, and are wanting a termination of your pregnancy, then it is best to consult with an experienced medical professional at an approved and certified MTP (Medical Termination of Pregnancy) hospital about the best type of abortion option for you, based on your specific circumstances.
It can be quite a scary place to be in and you may be unsure of where to turn for help and guidance about terminating your pregnancy – but if you can seek advice from a reputable and experienced health professional, they can guide you to a safe decision for you.
The abortion pill, or medical abortion is a non-surgical option for abortion. It is available to most women up to 63 days’ gestation.
The abortion pill treatment combines two medications – mifepristone and misoprostol. The first step is to take the mifepristone. Mifepristone works to block your body’s own production of progesterone. Progesterone is important to grow the pregnancy, and without the progesterone the body will stop the pregnancy from growing. Mifepristone works by stopping the pregnancy from growing any further.
As with any other law, the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act has conditions that should be satisfied or met by the pregnant woman so as to permit an abortion procedure.
