Our experience makes American Hospital Bangalore a premier destination for medical tourism, offering exceptional medical services.
Having a complete and competent medical team of doctors, you can benefit from the following abortion procedure services:
• Abortion with Pills – Being one of the most common procedures, abortion with pills is preferred by the majority of women, since it does not involve invasive procedures or surgery. One thing you need to remember though is that abortion pills are effective only if the pregnancy is younger than seven weeks.
Upon your arrival at the hospital, the team of doctors assigned to take care of you will run a series of tests in order to make sure that abortion with pills is safe for you. If the results are favorable, you will be given a pill, called Mifepristone, one of the abortion pills in Bahrain, which you can find over the counter (although not recommended without medical supervision) to be taken orally. You are then discharged and allowed to go home.
What is important with pill abortion is the education and guidance you are given by your doctors. Depending on patient needs and requirements, you may be taken through the entire process: the second day after taking the pill is when bleeding similar to your menstrual cycle will appear, and you will may also experience minor pain and discomfort.
Also, depending on your needs as ascertained by the gynecologist, during the third day, you may need to take pills called prostaglandins, which induce the cramping that helps the body eliminate the remains of the foetus.
• D&C Abortion – Another common procedure used at American Hospital Bangalore is the D&C abortion. Applicable for pregnancies between 7 and 12 weeks old, the D&C abortion procedure consists of dilating the uterine cervix and suctioning the content of the uterus. As long as you have discussed with your doctors and booked an early appointment, you will be taken to complete the required medical tests, upon your arrival at the hospital.
Our gynecologists will advise you not to eat anything for a few hours before this procedure, in order to have an empty stomach. You will undergo anesthesia, helping you not to feel any pain during the abortion.
Even if this procedure is fairly short, you will have to remain under medical observation for a few hours, to allow your body to rest, recover and for the doctors to verify that there aren’t any complications or hemorrhages. The final test, which clears you to return home, is passing urine without any pain. Once you are able to do so, you will be checked out and free to take your flight.
• Second Trimester Abortion Procedure – The second trimester abortion procedure can be performed when the pregnancy is between 12 and 20 weeks.
The gynecologists and doctors at the American Hospital Bangalore will run an enhanced series of tests, in order to assess any eventual issue which may arise while performing this procedure.
The American Hospital second trimester abortion procedure involves administrating medication which induces cramping, creating the conditions for expulsion of the fetus. After the fetus and the placenta have been expelled, you will be given antibiotics to prevent any type of infection. Also, painkillers will be prescribed, to reduce pain. The dosage is set according to your experience and pain resistance.
• Post Abortion Care – The American Hospital Bangalore provides not only top quality medical care for surgical and medical abortion procedures, but also for the abortion recovery process, ensuring everything goes smoothly, without any complications. You will receive post abortion care, that helps you heal at a fast pace, being in perfect shape before you check out from our facility. Remember that your relationship with our doctors does not end once you exit the doors of the hospital, follow-up calls being not only available, but also recommended. Make sure you contact your doctor if there is any doubt that you are not ok. The medical staff is always available to help and solve any problem which might occur.
