Urination & Vinegar

Frequent Urination & Vinegar

Dealing with frequent urination can inhibit your lifestyle, since needing to be near a bathroom all the time is inconvenient. Though vinegar is a home remedy for many conditions, including bladder infections and urinary incontinence, drinking vinegar may cause more harm than good when it comes to treating frequent urination.

Causes of Frequent Urination

Frequent urination is caused by a myriad of conditions, including urinary incontinence, bladder infection or cystitis, according to Medline Plus. Likewise, taking certain medications such as diuretics can cause frequent urination, as well.

Antibacterial Effects of Vinegar

Vinegar tastes highly acidic but it becomes alkaline once it enters the body. According to Earl Mindell, M.D., author of “Dr. Earl Mindell’s Amazing Apple Cider Vinegar,” vinegar can kill bacteria because of its alkalinity. Bacteria typically thrive in acidic environments. Mindell suggests drinking vinegar and water to treat bladder infections — a prime cause of frequent urination — to create an environment that is inhospitable to bacteria.

Vinegar as Diuretic

Unfortunately, vinegar may actually cause frequent urination in some cases. According to Health Services at Columbia, vinegar can act as a diuretic in the body, meaning it flushes out accumulated water and makes you need to urinate more often. If you currently take diuretics, it is best not to drink vinegar as you may experience an increase in this symptom.

Bladder Irritation

If you have an overactive bladder, a condition that causes chronic bladder irritation and an increased need to urinate, drinking vinegar could worsen your condition. According to the Cleveland Clinic, vinegar may irritate the bladder, causing you to feel like you need to urinate more often. If you have an overactive bladder, eliminate vinegar from your diet, Cleveland Clinic advises.

Can Drinking Vinegar Kill an Unborn Baby?

Some popular health sources and practitioners of alternative medicine recommend consuming vinegar to help regulate blood sugar, among other purported benefits. However, the increased sensitivity of your body to ingested foods during pregnancy means that you may want to avoid drinking vinegar if you’re pregnant.

Vinegar

There are several health claims that appear in popular media regarding vinegar. For instance, you may have heard that vinegar helps you lose weight, prevents diabetes or helps regulate your blood sugar. The evidence to support these claims is all quite preliminary, however, which means you shouldn’t use vinegar to treat a medical condition, and you should talk to your doctor before consuming vinegar as a dietary supplement.

Vinegar And Pregnancy

There are a few reported side effects of drinking vinegar that could be even more problematic during pregnancy. First, vinegar is very acidic. As such, it can increase the likelihood that you’ll experience heartburn, which is quite prevalent during pregnancy, explain Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel in their book “What To Expect When You’re Expecting.” Vinegar has also been known to cause burns to the esophagus, notes Dr. Carol Johnston in the book “Complementary and Alternative Therapies in the Aging Population.”

Electrolytes

One of the most distressing adverse effects reported as a result of drinking vinegar is hypokalemia or low potassium. Potassium is an electrolyte that you need to maintain at normal levels for purposes of cellular communication and function, as well as fluid balance. While hypokalemia isn’t a common side effect of drinking vinegar, pregnancy can put you at increased risk of electrolyte imbalance, so you should talk to your doctor before using vinegar.

Alternatives

If you’re using vinegar to help stabilize blood sugar, which is one of the most common alternative uses of the substance, you may wish to try consuming a balanced, healthy diet instead. Eating a mixture of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein, whole grains, and plant-based fats will help stabilize your blood sugar naturally, without having to rely upon consumption of a substance that could increase your likelihood of discomfort or complication during pregnancy.

The long road to legal abortion in Italy – and why many women are still denied it

Italy marks 40 years of legalized abortion this month, but many women are still unable to access the procedure due to a rising rate of conscientious objection among doctors.

The anniversary of Italy’s abortion law, first passed in May 1978, is a chance to reflect on the long road to legal abortion in Italy, and on the many obstacles, women continue to face.

Before the 1978 referendum, causing the abortion of a consenting woman could result in a prison sentence of between one and five years for both the woman and the person who carried out the procedure.

But in the 1970s, as in other European countries, Italy saw a wave of feminist activism. Their achievements included changes to family law that made men and women equal partners in a marriage, legalization of divorce, and the law allowing abortion.

In 1973, the Centre for Information on Sterilization and Abortion (CISA) was founded in Milan by political activists including Emma Bonino, who has since gone on to hold prominent roles including that of Foreign Minister, and Adele Faccio. The organization gave advice on contraception, sterilization, and abortion to Italian women, including helping women experiencing crisis pregnancies travel to countries including England and the Netherlands to undergo an abortion.

Two years later, Bonino, Faccio, and Radical Party secretary Gianfranco Spadaccia reported themselves to police and were arrested for carrying out abortions.

This marked the start of a huge campaign for a new abortion law. This law, known as Legge 194, was passed by a narrow margin in both of Italy’s houses of parliament and is still in place today. A 1981 referendum of repealing the law was rejected by two-thirds of voters.

Under Legge 194, women have the right to an abortion in the first 90 days of pregnancy. The procedure is free for women who have the Italian health insurance card (tessera sanitaria) under the state healthcare system, but women without the card need to pay. Under-18’s require permission from parents or guardians, or a judge might make the decision.

Within these first 12 weeks, the cause for abortion may be due to health, economic, social or family reasons, while between the 12th and 20th week, either a significant fetal abnormality must be present, posing a serious risk to the woman’s mental or physical health, or there must be a danger to the woman’s life if she continues with the pregnancy.

But in practice, these are rights that not all women are able to benefit from.

The legislation also includes a recognition of the “social value of motherhood”, and allows medical professionals to refuse to carry out abortions on the grounds of conscientious objection, often linked to their personal religious beliefs. Doctors applying for jobs at Vatican-run hospitals must object to the procedure, while by contrast, when a Rome hospital advertised for two specifically non-objecting doctors last year, there was a huge backlash.

And the number of objecting doctors is growing.

According to health ministry figures, just over 70 percent of gynecologists in Italy refuse to carry out the procedure, and the proportion is far from even across the country, soaring as high as 90 percent in some areas. These figures from 2016 were up from 58.7 percent in 2005.

All medics involved in the procedure, including anesthetists and nurses, have the right to object, with the result that only around 60 percent of all hospitals and clinics can actually offer abortions, and women often have to travel far from home and wait days or weeks in order to access the service. One woman in Padua was turned away from 23 hospitals and only able to undergo the procedure when a trade union, CGIL, intervened on her behalf.

At the time, CGIL described the waiting lists for abortions in Italy as “dangerously long, forcing women to turn to private structures or, worse, to resort to clandestine abortions, a social shame which Law 194 was created to prevent.”

“It is inconceivable to force women to undertake actual odysseys in order to see the state law respected,” the union said.

Another factor making safe, legal abortions hard to access in Italy is the resistance to medical abortion or abortion pills.

The Ru486 (mifepristone) pill was only approved in Italy in 2009, following strong opposition from the Vatican and conservative politicians. By contrast, it was approved in France over 20 years earlier, and in the UK and Sweden in 1991 and 1992 respectively; in each of these countries, the majority of abortions are now medical rather than surgical.

Despite being legal, regional governments are allowed to issue their own protocol for use of the drug.

Medical abortion is only considered an outpatient procedure in five of Italy’s 20 regions. In others, patients are hospitalized for three days while they take the pills, though surgical abortion is usually a one-day procedure, meaning Ru486 is rarely used. The problem is exacerbated by long waiting lists at hospitals and the fact the pill is only effective if taken in the first 50 days of pregnancy.

Things are changing on that front, albeit slowly. In 2017, Lazio became the first region to offer the abortion pill at family-planning clinics — removing the need for a hospital stay — as part of a trial period that’s still underway.

The latest data from statistics agency Istat shows a steady decline in the number of legal abortions in Italy since 1982, and in the EU Italy has one of the lowest rates of abortion. In 2016, Health Ministry data shows there were around 82,000 abortions, compared to around 235,000 in 1982, when the number reached its peak.

While the Health Ministry has argued that the decline in abortions means the rise in conscientious objectors isn’t affecting women in crisis pregnancies, many campaigners say it’s the opposite, and that the increased difficulty in accessing abortion is pushing more women to illegal, unsafe abortions or to travel abroad for the procedure. The number of miscarriages has risen over the past 20 years, and CGIL estimates the number of illegal abortions at 50,000 each year — far higher than the government estimate of 15,000.

Women found to have had illegal abortions face hefty fines. These penalties, which range between €5,000 and €10,000, were introduced in 2016 to replace a ‘symbolic’ fine of €51. The former fine was aimed at encouraging them to denounce doctors who performed it as well as encourage them to use the state healthcare system in case any complications arose.

The anti-abortion movement is significantly stronger in Italy than in much of northern Europe, due in part to the strong influence of the Catholic Church.

Pope Francis, who was hailed as a reformer when he first took on the role, has repeatedly spoken out against abortion, despite having made the small progressive step to authorize priests to absolve women who have had terminations. The pontiff last year called on Catholics to “promote a culture of life as a response to the logic of throwing away”. Just a month earlier, he claimed to have met a woman in Buenos Aires who said she had chosen abortion to “save her looks”, in a speech in which he called physical beauty and even health “false idols” which “drive us towards death”.

Last winter, a priest in the university city of Bologna compared politician and longtime campaigner for women’s rights Emma Bonino to one of Italy’s most notorious mafia killers, saying there was “morally” no difference between brutal mafia murder and abortion.

According to a 2015 Ipsos survey, 17 percent of Italians surveyed said abortion should either never be permitted, or only in cases where the mother’s life was in danger. That was higher than the figure of 15 percent in Ireland, though there was slightly stronger support for abortion to be permitted in any circumstances (47 percent in Italy compared to 37 percent in Ireland).

As the 40-year anniversary of the abortion law drew near, anti-abortion groups stuck up campaign posters around Rome, describing abortion as femicide — a term for gender-based murder of a woman. Monica Cirinnà, the Democratic Party senator who drafted Italy’s civil union’s bill called on Roman mayor Virginia Raggi to remove the “shameful” posters.

Of course, there is campaigning on the other side too. Trade union CGIL and LAIGA (an organization for gynecologists who support the right to abortion) are two of the groups speaking out for women’s right to bodily autonomy to be safeguarded in Italy.

There has also been international intervention: Italy has been criticized by both the Council of Europe and the UN for the serious obstacles to accessing safe abortion.

Emma Bonino called on Italian women not to “take their rights for granted”, speaking on the 40th anniversary of the law she helped introduce.

“40 years on from the passing of Legge 194, there is still a long road ahead of us,” she said.

Abortion is legal in Italy

Abortion is illegal in Italy

Abortion is legal in Italy — so why are women being refused?

Women’s abortion rights in Italy are the worst they have been since the 1970s as a civil war rages on the issue, campaigners claim.

They say increasing numbers of gynecologists are refusing to carry out terminations, forcing women into unsafe, illegal abortions.

It comes amid a publicity drive from anti-abortion organizations that are attempting to demonize women who terminate, according to Silvana Agatone, president of LAIGA, an association of gynecologists that supports abortion rights.

Anti-abortion groups say they hope the number of conscientious objectors increases and that women’s choice should end when another life is involved.

Why is getting an abortion tougher?

Italy legalized abortion on May 22, 1978 — exactly forty years ago today — allowing women to terminate in the first three months of pregnancy or after if the mother’s life is at risk or there is an abnormal fetus.

But the legislation contained a clause allowing doctors, nurses, anesthetists, and others to declare themselves conscientious objectors and refuse to perform abortions.

Figures compiled by the Italian government show the percentage of gynecologists objecting has jumped from 58.7% in 2005 to 70.9% in 2016.

It’s not just gynecologists who professionally object to carry out terminations, nearly half of anesthetists refuse to get involved, according to official data.

Agatone claims other staff use more subtle means to disrupt abortions, such as nurses who don’t wash the utensils needed to carry out the operation, or hospital porters that refuse to wheel in patients for terminations.

“They don’t use the conscientious objection, they abuse the objection,” Agatone told Euronews.

“The environment around you is very negative because if you provide abortions you are treated like a criminal.

“It’s very difficult to work in an environment that is so against you and makes so many problems for you.”

What are the consequences?

Agatone says the higher number of objectors often means desperate women — either by choice or by necessity — having to go from town-to-town searching for someone who will carry out the operation. If they don’t find someone, they are forced into hidden, illegal and unsafe abortions.

Government figures show around 60% of medical establishments provide abortions; Agatone says all should by law.

Agatone’s claims come amid a publicity drive by anti-abortion organizations such as ProVita Onlus and CitizenGo.

Agatone said the increasing number of conscientious objectors and the prominence of anti-abortion groups means abortion rights for women are at the worst level since terminations were legalized 40 years ago.

“It’s becoming much worse,” she added. “This month I’m seeing stuff I’ve never seen before — there’s a civil war on abortion.”

Why is this happening?

Experts say conscientious objectors are rising because gynecologists who are against abortion find it easier to advance in Italian hospitals.

“The system in the hospitals favor the career of the objectors, while non-objecting doctors are often mobbed and discriminated and have to carry the responsibility alone to ensure that the law is implemented,” said Irene Donadio, spokeswoman for the International Planned Parenthood Federation European Network.

“Some are forced to travel to different hospitals to ensure that women receive care in regions in which there is a huge percentage of hospitals that are not ensuring the service via their permanent staff.

“Of course even this is not enough and many women are forced to move to hospitals in other parts of the country to try to get the care they are entitled to.”

Donadio said the rise of populism has also helped foster the growing influence of anti-abortion groups.

“These groups can enjoy a much bigger political influence now that the League has won the elections and is about to enter the new government,” she added.

“The League is close to Russia and Trump and shares a very oppressive agenda around women’s reproductive autonomy.

“The populist Five-Star Movement is flirting with the far-right wingers and from their programme, it seems they care more about stopping children getting vaccines than women’s right to health or how they are treated in hospitals.”

What do anti-abortion groups say?

Alessandro Fiore, son of fascist Italian politician Roberto Fiore and spokesman for ProVita Onlus, said posters put up in Rome and Genoa recently were part of a large anti-abortion communication campaign that will see publicity in 100 provinces.

“It is not true that legislation of abortion leads to a reduction in the number of abortions,” Fiore told Euronews.

“By making it more accessible and by normalizing it in the common conscience leads to an increase in the number of abortions.

“It happened in all countries that have legalized abortion and an increase occurred in Italy in the years that followed legalization.

“We hope that conscientious objection will increase further, this is not a cause for concern.

“The freedom of choice by women is a great misunderstanding: not only about one’s own body but also about the child in the womb, whose right to life is denied.

“We support those who object and invite reflection on why some gynecologists and scholars refuse to practice abortion: as gynecologists, they realize what abortion is, it is a matter of destroying the body of that child.”

Italy’s anniversary comes as another historically Catholic country, Ireland holds a referendum on Friday on whether to relax strict abortion laws.

      ! If the delivery or taking care of the child would be a substantial burden. The burden can be of any kind.
      ! If a disease, mental disturbance or other comparable cause, affecting one or both parents, seriously limits their capacity to care for the child

    • Germany
      The legal situation: up to 12 weeks from conception if the woman declares to be in a state of distress (in practice: on request after counseling) rape or other sexual crime. Counselling compulsory for abortion on request! Counseling not compulsory for medical cases and in case of rape or other sexual crime! The compulsory waiting period after counseling (3 days; for abortion on request)! Second written a medical opinion, in addition to one of the doctors performing the abortion
      (medical reasons, rape or other sexual crime)! “The counseling serves to protect unborn life”
      While the law explicitly requires a network of abortion counseling facilities with different ideological orientation, in some areas women can in practice only choose between a church-related facility and another one run by local or state authorities (which are legally obliged to be ideologically neutral) Details [pdf]

    • Italy
      The legal situation: up to 90 days (between 12 and 13 weeks) if continuing the pregnancy, childbirth or motherhood would seriously endanger the woman’s physical or mental health, the woman’s state of health, economic, social or family circumstances. Circumstances in which conception occurred, the probability that the child would be born with abnormalities or malformations. A certificate from a fully authorized medico-social agency, a public counseling center or a physician of the woman’s choice is needed.! A compulsory waiting period of at least 7 days (if abortion is found not to be urgently required). In some Regions (mainly in Southern Italy) and in rural areas, there may be disparities between the law and its application. Free of charge for all women, including immigrant women, foreigners, and women without legal resident’s permit. Details [pdf]

    • Portugal
      The legal situation: up to 12 weeks if abortion is one of the ways to avert the risk of death or grave and irreversible damage to the physical or mental health of the woman. Up to 16 weeks: Rape or other sexual crime. Up to 24 weeks: if there are substantial grounds for believing that the child would be born with a serious or incurable disease or malformation. The woman must give her written consent not less than three days prior to the abortion. There is thus a compulsory waiting period (up to 3 days). In case of emergency, the prescribed time limit may be waived. Prior to the abortion, a physician other than the one performing the procedure must sign a medical certificate attesting to the existence of circumstances that render an abortion permissible.
      In cases of rape, the verification of circumstances depends upon evidence of criminal.
      The law is not fully implemented in public hospitals, due to a large number of conscientious objections and to the lack of further regulations.! As a consequence, the majority of abortions are performed illegally by doctors, midwives, and nurses in private clinics and cabinets. Details [pdf]

    • Spain
      The legal situation: up to 12 weeks: Rape. Up to 22 weeks if the fetus, if carried to term, will suffer from severe physical or mental defects. No limit if the abortion is necessary to avert a serious risk to the physical or mental health of the pregnant woman. The lack of the conscientious objection regulation and its generalization in public health means that in general women have to refer themselves to private structures and that there are important differences between regions in terms of availability of service, especially in public structures. An abortion must be performed by or under the supervision of a physician in an approved public or private health center or the establishment, provided the pregnant woman gives her express consent and one of the legal indications for abortion is met. A pregnant woman is penalized if the abortion is not performed in an approved public or private health center or the establishment, or if the prescribed medical opinions have not been expressed. Details [pdf]

Non-Surgical Abortions

Safe Abortion Pills

Medical, Non-Surgical Abortions with the Abortion Pill (Mifeprex)
Up to 10 weeks of pregnancy

Non-surgical abortions sometimes called “medical abortions,” are performed in the first 9-10 weeks in the first trimester. Non-surgical abortion can be administered in pill form (otherwise known as Mifeprex or RU-486). Mifeprex is approved by the FDA for non-surgical abortion.

This non-surgical method of abortion will stop your pregnancy from growing and vaginal suppositories will help expel your pregnancy. There is a small statistical chance of failure with this method, so you must be physically healthy enough and willing to undergo a surgical abortion in the unlikely event that this non-surgical method fails. In addition, you must be able to commit to 2 or more visits to the office.
You must agree to the following requirements:

  • You must agree to have a surgical abortion if the non-surgical abortion fails
  • You must be able to receive phone calls from the office
  • You must have immediate, reliable access to transportation in the event of an emergency
  • You must agree to return to the office for a check-up afterward
  • Commonly Asked Questions about Mifeprex

How does Mifeprex Work

Mifeprex blocks a hormone needed for your pregnancy to continue. When used together with another medicine called misoprostol, Mifeprex ends your pregnancy.

How effective is Mifeprex

Mifeprex followed by the vaginal insertions is approximately 98% effective.

What are the advantages of Mifeprex

Because Mifeprex comes in pill form and is taken by mouth, you can usually avoid surgery. Also, because it works very early in your pregnancy, Mifeprex allows you to take early action to end your pregnancy.

What are the effects of Mifeprex

Bleeding and cramping are a normal part of the process. The bleeding can be heavier than a normal period and usually lasts from 9-16 days. In some cases, women may have severe bleeding and then would need to contact the clinic or their doctor immediately. Your provider will instruct you on how to handle any pain, nausea, headache, vomiting, or diarrhea that could also occur.

How safe is Mifeprex

The FDA, which has tested it for both safety and effectiveness, has approved Mifeprex. In the past decade, almost 700,000 women in Europe have safely used Mifeprex to end their pregnancies. It is now approved for use in more than 23 countries.

Sonogram Guided Abortion

Sonogram Guided Abortion

At All Women’s Medical, we do more because we care more

Why Settle for a blind procedure when your doctor can see?

Your safety is our #1 priority. For that reason, 100% of our procedures are performed under COMPLETE SONOGRAM GUIDANCE. Unlike a “blind” procedure in which a doctor goes solely on his sense of feel, we use Sonography to give the additional benefit of sight for a gentler and safer procedure. The use of sonography guides our surgeons directly to the pregnancy so the risk of injury or retained tissue is kept at a minimum. Sonography also lowers the amount of time the procedure takes thereby helping the doctors to decrease the amount of time you spend under anesthesia.

No two women are created the same and neither is their uterus. Previous medical conditions such as fibroids, prior cesareans and the number of pregnancies all contribute to the uniqueness of each uterus. With the use of sonography, we are able to see the uterus in three dimensions assuring us that the uterus is clean.

 

Safe Individualized Anesthesia Care

Two doctors are better than one!

Every patient who enters our operating room is greeted by two doctors, a surgeon, and an anesthesiologist. Just as no two patients are the same, neither are their individual needs for anesthesia. Our team of physicians discusses the specific needs of each patient before her procedure for maximum safety and comfort. Should you choose to be asleep for your procedure, you may take comfort in the fact that your individualized anesthesia options are tailored specifically for YOU.

Early Pregnancy Test

What is the abortion pill?

Medication abortion — also called the abortion pill — is a safe and effective way to end an early pregnancy.

How does abortion pill work?

The abortion pill is the common name for using two different medicines to end a pregnancy: mifepristone and misoprostol.

First, you take a pill called mifepristone. Pregnancy needs a hormone called progesterone to grow normally. Mifepristone blocks your body’s own progesterone, stopping the pregnancy from growing.

Then you take the second medicine, misoprostol, either right away or up to 48 hours later. This medicine causes cramping and bleeding to empty your uterus. It’s kind of like having a really heavy, cramping period, and the process is very similar to an early miscarriage. If you don’t have any bleeding within 24 hours after taking the second medicine, call your nurse or doctor.

How effective is the abortion pill?

The abortion pill is very effective. The effectiveness depends on how far along you are in your pregnancy when you take the medicine.

  • For people who are 8 weeks pregnant or less, it works about 94-98 out of 100 times.
  • For people who are 8-9 weeks pregnant, it works about 94-96 out of 100 times.
  • For people who are 9-10 weeks pregnant, it works about 91-93 out of 100 times.

Abortion pill usually works, but if it doesn’t, you can take more medicine or have an in-clinic abortion to complete the abortion.

In-clinic abortions

In-clinic abortion works by using suction to take pregnancy out of your uterus. There are a couple of kinds of in-clinic abortion procedures. Your doctor or nurse will know which type is right for you, depending on how far you are into your pregnancy.

Suction abortion (also called vacuum aspiration) is the most common type of in-clinic abortion. It uses gentle suction to empty your uterus. It’s usually used until about 14-16 weeks after your last period.

How effective are in-clinic abortions?

In-clinic abortions are extremely effective. They work more than 99 out of every 100 times. Needing to get a repeat procedure because the abortion didn’t work is really rare.

Womb Cleaning after a safe Abortion

The womb is the center of a woman’s power, creativity, and life force. Not only does the womb create babies, but it also energetically holds the space of the life force. Therefore after every abortion procedure, we shall provide you with pain tablets and antibiotics that will prevent you from getting any infections during the healing process.

You may also need to have a pap smear to make sure that the cervix (mouth of the womb) is normal.

Should you feel continuous pains that do not stop or bleeding that is heavily for almost a week after an abortion that is a possible sign of small tissue that might have remained inside the womb during the medical abortion procedure.

We shall perform some test and if we confirm that there is a sign of infection, the clinic will perform a small medical procedure to gently scoop or remove any remaining tissue inside the womb.

Abortion

Whatever your circumstances, it’s your right to terminate up to 24 weeks into the pregnancy. It’s entirely your decision, and if it’s something you want to do, rest assured that’s it’s legal in South Africa to have an abortion

Remember: abortion is legal in South Africa, so there is no reason to ever visit an illegal service provider. If you have passed the 24-weeks mark, there are other options available to you, which we’ll talk you through and help you to understand.

We’re here to support you, whatever choice you make about your pregnancy, so you never have to feel alone. We offer safe abortion (also called Termination of Pregnancy or TOP) for women who are up to 24 weeks pregnant. Depending on the gestation (stage of the pregnancy), we have two services available: the Medical Process (often called the abortion pill) and the surgical Procedure (a minor, same day surgical treatment).

Our nurses and doctors are accredited professionals and experts in reproductive healthcare. Our work has strictly governed the Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act (amended 2008) and we adhere to World Health Organization Guidelines.

Safe abortion or Termination of pregnancy (TOP) is when a pregnancy is terminated in its early stage before it results in the birth of a child.

Abortion may be performed in two different ways.

Medical Abortion.

This is when abortion pills will be swallowed to end the pregnancy.

Surgical Abortion.

This is when instruments will be used to remove the fetus.

If both abortion procedures are done by a qualified abortion doctor with proper medical guidance, there is no way it will affect your fertility.

How is a Safe Abortion Done

On your first visit to our clinic, counseling will be provided and this is optional.

Safe abortion

The doctor will perform a pregnancy test to confirm the weeks and also explain to you in detailed how the safe abortion procedure will done and how to take care of yourself after the abortion.

Safe Abortion Procedure

You will swallow one abortion pill that is meant to block the hormone called progesterone.

Progesterone is the hormone that supports pregnancy and without it, the pregnancy can not continue.

Step 2.

A few hours later after the first pill, the lining of the uterus will begin to shed and this will soften the os of the cervix.

You will then be requested to swallow another set of abortion pills or they may be inserted inside your vagina.

RU-486 Pill Pretoria

Where to get Abortion Pills in Pretoria

RU-486 is the former name of mifepristone — one of the medications that you take to have a medication abortion. RU-486 is now called “the abortion pill” or “Mifeprex” (the brand name for mifepristone).

RU-486 was developed in the 1980s. It’s been safely used in Europe since 1987, and in the US since 2000.

RU-486 blocks a hormone that your body needs to continue a pregnancy. It works best when you use it with another medication called misoprostol, which causes bleeding to empty your uterus.

The RU-486 abortion pill is a safe and effective way to end an early pregnancy.

Pregnancy Termination Windhoek

Abortion

Pregnancy Termination-Abortion Pills in Windhoek

pregnancy termination the process of ending a pregnancy so it does not result in the birth of a baby. Depending on how many weeks you have been pregnant, the pregnancy is ended either by taking medication or by having a surgical procedure.

It is always a hard decision to make, but if you have weighed your options and ready to have the procedure done, you should arrange to have a termination sooner rather than later.

Often many teens under the age of 16 fall pregnant and get scared to tell their guardians about the mistake they did. In such situations, they keep on hiding the pregnancy by wearing big clothing so that their parents don’t realize but soon or later it starts to show and by the time they contact an abortion provider, often its too late.

whatever your age and situation, you can still have a legal termination of pregnancy performed but it must be approved by your guardian and the doctor who will counsel you about the current situation of raising a baby while your still young because most of the times,  it would be more harmful to your mental or physical health to continue with the pregnancy than it would be to terminate it.

Termination of pregnancy in Pretoria is legal up to 20 weeks but most abortion clinics will not perform an abortion after the 18-20 week mark unless either there is a serious threat to the woman’s life or the unborn child.
