Methods of Abortion- Planned Pregnancy

There are two kinds of abortion — clinical abortion and the abortion pill.

Abortions are very common in India. In fact, 1 out of 3 women in the India goes through an abortion by the time she is 45 years old. The reasons could be medical or social. If you are pregnant, you have options to go ahead with your pregnancy or abort it.

In case you are trying to decide if abortion is the right choice for you, you probably have many things to think and learn. Learning the facts about abortion may help you in making your decision. You may also want to learn more about parenting and adoption policies in case you go ahead with your pregnancy.

If you are under 18, your state may require one or both of your parents to give permission for your abortion or be told of your decision prior to the abortion. However, in most cases you can ask an elder family member to help you decide and make the right decision. There is still a lot of social stigma attached in the Indian society and many girls have to go for illegal abortions in conducted by inexperienced doctors under dismal hygienic conditions.

Only you can decide what is best for you. Once the decision is taken and you have decided to go ahead with abortion, you need to talk to a counsellor or a health care worker who can explain to you the two forms of abortion and which will be suitable to you based on your health. You may be offered the option to have an in-clinic abortion procedure. Or you may be offered the option to have a medication abortion by taking the abortion pill.
