Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP), commonly known as abortion, is a medical procedure that allows women to end a pregnancy safely and legally under specific circumstances. Dr. Shilpi Singh, a highly respected gynecologist in South Delhi, is here to provide a comprehensive guide on MTP, including its reasons, procedures, and considerations.

What is Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP)?
Medical Termination of Pregnancy refers to the deliberate termination of a pregnancy before the fetus can survive outside the uterus. It can be done using medications or, in some cases, a surgical procedure. MTP is a legal and essential reproductive healthcare option available to women when:

The pregnancy poses a risk to the physical or mental health of the woman.
The pregnancy is a result of rape or incest.
There are fetal abnormalities or congenital disorders.
The pregnancy is unwanted for various personal reasons.
Understanding the MTP Procedure:
Dr. Shilpi Singh can provide detailed information about the MTP procedure:

Counseling: Before undergoing MTP, a woman will receive counseling and a thorough medical evaluation to determine the gestational age and suitability for the procedure.

Medical Abortion: In the early stages of pregnancy (typically up to 10 weeks), a medical abortion involves taking medication (e.g., Mifepristone and Misoprostol) under medical supervision to induce a miscarriage.

Surgical Abortion: In later stages or under specific circumstances, a surgical abortion may be performed. This involves a minor surgical procedure to remove the pregnancy.

Considerations and Aftercare:
Dr. Shilpi Singh emphasizes the importance of:

Informed Decision-Making: It’s crucial for women to make informed decisions about MTP, considering their physical and emotional well-being and seeking support from healthcare providers and loved ones.

Follow-up Care: After the procedure, follow-up care and monitoring are essential to ensure there are no complications and to address any physical or emotional concerns.

Contraception: Discussing contraception options with Dr. Shilpi Singh is vital to prevent unintended pregnancies in the future.
