Real Women-Real Experiences-10

Real Women-Real Experiences-10

A 32 year old married women ,resident of Kharghar,Navi Mumbai came looking for prescription of abortion pills. Her elder child was of 2 years old and she was unwilling to continue with the present pregnancy.
On examination her UPT- urine pregnancy test was positive.
Though ultra-sonography did not reveal any pregnancy . We denied giving abortion tablets and asked her to do repeat Ultrasound after a week. She agreed to our advise albeit reluctantly.
Repeat USG showed an abnormal right tubal pregnancy -ectopic pregnancy later on.
A woman with ectopic pregnancy should not be given abortion tablets as the treatment for this condition is entirely different and mainly surgical.

The discussion here is about precautions before giving abortion tablets by the Gynaecologists.
Though the Ultrasound test is not mandatory, in our opinion it should be offered to all those who can avail this facility and can afford it too.

We the team of Gynaecologists at 'My Gynaec World ' make sincere efforts to make treatment safer for all our patients.
