What is a Medical Abortion?
A pregnancy that is terminated through the use of medicines or pills is known as a medical abortion. It sounds simple, but it is important to know that abortion pills are not 100% effective, that you will need to know exactly how far along you are, that you will need to suffer a miscarriage - which may not always end well. Some 10% to 15% of such miscarriages may end up with complications – necessitating more traumatic womb surgery to clean retained pieces of the pregnancy.
How Does a Medical Abortion Work?
In Thokoza, a medical abortion has been possible for decades with the use of a medication called misoprostol (Cytotec). This medicine has been approved for use to treat and prevent stomach ulcers – not for abortions. It has a side effect of causing spasms of the womb – which proves to be useful for pregnant women wanting abortions – so please note that it is an ‘off label’ use of the drug. When used alone for abortion, it is a much more painful method of causing a miscarriage since it essentially causes the womb to go into contraction to literally ‘squeeze’ the pregnancy out of your womb. Since it is low cost, it is widely used around our region for abortion purposes.
More recently, a much more specific abortion medication which can directly target pregnancy cells has been made available. However, it is much more costly. It is called Mifepristone, but also known as RU-486 or Mifegyne.
Can I buy the tablets for Medical Abortion without seeing the doctor?
Those who think that one can just go to any doctor to buy these tablets have completely the wrong concept of abortion in Thokoza. It's not a matter of buying the medicines and then taking the medication by yourself without any consultation, examination or counselling. You need to be properly assessed by qualified specialists who are licensed to practice abortions, and go through the same counselling process with the mandatory two-day waiting period. Next the entire process needs to be properly supervised - otherwise you could end up with many more problems and complications.
Cramping and vaginal bleeding are the most common side effects after having a medical abortion. These are normal and should stop after a few days or weeks. However, do not assume that having these two symptoms means that a miscarriage has occurred. Many women with ongoing pregnancies can also experience such symptoms. If symptoms such as a fever, vomiting, diarrheas persistent headaches, heavy bleeding, and abdominal and back pain are present, immediate medical attention should be sought.
What happens after I take the tablets for Medical Abortion?
Compared to a surgical aspiration of your womb which can be performed painlessly, after which you can go home confident that the doctor has cleansed your womb, a medical abortion requires you to come back repeatedly to see the doctor to (1) ensure that the abortion pills has been successful, (2) that assess that your miscarriage has been successful, and (3) that you do not suffer from complications like incomplete miscarriage, retained placental tissues or infections.
Why is Medical Abortion Performed?
Some patients prefer a medical abortion because the process can be done in the comfort of their home, and without having to undergo surgery. Some may also prefer how it feels more “natural”, as the experience is akin to a miscarriage. It is also less expensive as it does not require surgery or anaesthesia.
However, the above are ideal outcomes. The truth is that medical abortions are not without their downsides, which your doctor will explain to you and help you come to an informed decision. Miscarriages seldom end quickly and may result in many days and nights of pain and heavy bleeding. Trying to achieve such natural outcome in a miscarriage can often lead to more stress, more pain and more complications.
The best comparison is with childbirth – natural childbirth in a home setting versus a surgical birth in a hospital. Pain and stress are obviously much more at home, and a normal birth may not result with complications if they occur being much more dangerous. In comparison, a Caesarean birth is usually painless and complications better managed in the hospital.
