Present trend of going for Abortions in young couples by Dr. Anjana Ramesh
The present trend of going for abortions in a first pregnancy should be discouraged. It results in complications which can affect future pregnancy. Over counter MTP kits should not be used without the supervision of the gynaecologists, it may sometimes bleed heavily which can be life threatening.
The MTP tablets can sometimes fail, this could be end up as a D&C procedure which can cause scarring of uterus. The best way to avoid all this is to use contraception whichever method as guided by your gynaecologists. Termination of pregnancy should be due only in genuine conditions.
Contraception in the form of pills, IVCDs available which are safe, incidence of infertility is increasing so think before you leap into a termination.
