Once-a-month treatment with a combination of mifepristone and the prostaglandin analogue misoprostol. (2/1061)

In this two centre study, the efficacy of 200 mg mifepristone orally followed 48 h later by 0.4 mg misoprostol orally for menstrual regulation was investigated. The dose of mifepristone was taken the day before the expected day of menstruation. Each volunteer was planned to participate for up to 6 months. A plasma beta human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) was measured on the day of mifepristone intake. The study was disrupted prematurely due to low efficacy. In 125 treatment cycles the overall pregnancy rate was 17.6% (22 pregnancies) and the rate of continuing pregnancies (failure) was 4.0%. Eight women discontinued the study due to bleeding irregularities which were seen in 15 cycles (12%). These effects on bleeding pattern made the timing of treatment day difficult. Late luteal phase treatment with a combination of mifepristone and misoprostol is not adequately effective for menstrual regulation.  (+info)

Agreeing criteria for audit of the management of induced abortion: an approach by national consensus survey. (3/1061)

OBJECTIVE: To obtain a national consensus view of suggested criteria for good quality care in induced abortion to serve as a basis for standards for audit to assess current clinical practice. DESIGN: Postal, questionnaire survey assessing consensus agreement with criteria identified from a literature review and refined by an invited panel of four gynaecologists and the gynaecology audit project in Scotland (GAPS) committee. SETTING: Scotland. SUBJECTS: All 132 practising consultant gynaecologists. MAIN MEASURES: Overall level of agreement with each of 20 suggested audit criteria. RESULTS: 121 completed questionnaires were received (response rate 92%), of which 119 were returned in time for analysis; 107 came from consultants who practised abortion routinely and were included in the analysis. Nineteen of 20 suggested criteria were validated by an overall balance of agreement. The most strongly supported criterion (agreement score +93) was for ascertaining rhesus status of the woman and prophylaxis after abortion, if indicated. The only criterion to elicit a negative agreement score (-27) was that dilatation and evacuation is the best method of abortion at 12-15 weeks' gestation. The ranked and prioritised criteria resulting from this exercise are being used within a national audit project. CONCLUSIONS: A postal questionnaire survey among interested clinicians resulted in a good response rate and enabled the audit criteria to be validated and ranked more objectively and among more clinicians, than would have been possible by group discussion.  (+info)

Impact of a national audit project on gynaecologists in Scotland. (4/1061)

The objectives of the study were (a) to determine consultant gynaecologists' awareness of and views on a national audit project (the gynaecology audit project in Scotland) and (b) to measure changes in their reported practice in relation to 12 specific elements of care related to three audit topics (induced abortion, endometriosis, and vulvar carcinoma) for which recommendations for change had been made within the project. The study comprised a postal questionnaire survey of all 128 consultant gynaecologists in NHS practice in Scotland. The response rate was 90%. Of the respondents, 96% (109/113) recalled receiving feedback material from the audit project team and around 75% (range 66/89 to 84/105) had retained feedback reports for future reference. For the two more common clinical topics (induced abortion and endometriosis), over two thirds of the respondents indicated that they had been prompted to reconsider or change aspects of practice. Significant changes in reported practice, in line with project recommendations, were found for seven of the 12 specific elements of care examined. Thus, gynaecologists in Scotland showed a high level of awareness of and positive views towards a national audit project. Significant changes in reported practice, in accordance with circulated recommendations, were measurable in relation to several elements of clinical care.  (+info)

Complications of unsafe abortion in sub-Saharan Africa: a review. (5/1061)

The Commonwealth Regional Health Community Secretariat undertook a study in 1994 to document the magnitude of abortion complications in Commonwealth member countries. The results of the literature review component of that study, and research gaps identified as a result of the review, are presented in this article. The literature review findings indicate a significant public health problem in the region, as measured by a high proportion of incomplete abortion patients among all hospital gynaecology admissions. The most common complications of unsafe abortion seen at health facilities were haemorrhage and sepsis. Studies on the use of manual vacuum aspiration for treating abortion complications found shorter lengths of hospital stay (and thus, lower resource costs) and a reduced need for a repeat evacuation. Very few articles focused exclusively on the cost of treating abortion complications, but authors agreed that it consumes a disproportionate amount of hospital resources. Studies on the role of men in supporting a woman's decision to abort or use contraception were similarly lacking. Articles on contraceptive behaviour and abortion reported that almost all patients suffering from abortion complications had not used an effective, or any, method of contraception prior to becoming pregnant, especially among the adolescent population; studies on post-abortion contraception are virtually nonexistent. Almost all articles on the legal aspect of abortion recommended law reform to reflect a public health, rather than a criminal, orientation. Research needs that were identified include: community-based epidemiological studies; operations research on decentralization of post-abortion care and integration of treatment with post-abortion family planning services; studies on system-wide resource use for treatment of incomplete abortion; qualitative research on the role of males in the decision to terminate pregnancy and use contraception; clinical studies on pain control medications and procedures; and case studies on the provision of safe abortion services where legally allowed.  (+info)

A randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study to assess the effect of oral contraceptive pills on the outcome of medical abortion with mifepristone and misoprostol. (6/1061)

This was a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial to determine the effect of oral contraceptive (OC) pills taken immediately after medical abortion on the duration of bleeding and complete abortion rate. Two hundred women in the first 49 days of pregnancy were given 200 mg mifepristone orally followed by 400 microg misoprostol vaginally 48 h later. One day later, they were randomized to receive either OC pills (30 microg of ethinyl oestradiol and 0.15 mg of levonorgestrel per tablet) or placebo for 21 days. The complete abortion rates were 98% in the OC group and 99% in the placebo group. The median duration of bleeding was similar: 17 (range: 5-57) days in the OC group and 16 (range: 6-55) days in the placebo group. In the OC group there was a small but significant fall in the haemoglobin concentration by 14 days (5.3 g/dl) after administration of mifepristone. The incidence of side-effects was similar in the two groups. We conclude that the use of OC pills does not decrease the duration of bleeding after medical abortion nor does it affect the abortion rate.  (+info)

Contraceptive failure rates: new estimates from the 1995 National Survey of Family Growth. (7/1061)

CONTEXT: Unintended pregnancy remains a major public health concern in the United States. Information on pregnancy rates among contraceptive users is needed to guide medical professionals' recommendations and individuals' choices of contraceptive methods. METHODS: Data were taken from the 1995 National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) and the 1994-1995 Abortion Patient Survey (APS). Hazards models were used to estimate method-specific contraceptive failure rates during the first six months and during the first year of contraceptive use for all U.S. women. In addition, rates were corrected to take into account the underreporting of induced abortion in the NSFG. Corrected 12-month failure rates were also estimated for subgroups of women by age, union status, poverty level, race or ethnicity, and religion. RESULTS: When contraceptive methods are ranked by effectiveness over the first 12 months of use (corrected for abortion underreporting), the implant and injectables have the lowest failure rates (2-3%), followed by the pill (8%), the diaphragm and the cervical cap (12%), the male condom (14%), periodic abstinence (21%), withdrawal (24%) and spermicides (26%). In general, failure rates are highest among cohabiting and other unmarried women, among those with an annual family income below 200% of the federal poverty level, among black and Hispanic women, among adolescents and among women in their 20s. For example, adolescent women who are not married but are cohabiting experience a failure rate of about 31% in the first year of contraceptive use, while the 12-month failure rate among married women aged 30 and older is only 7%. Black women have a contraceptive failure rate of about 19%, and this rate does not vary by family income; in contrast, overall 12-month rates are lower among Hispanic women (15%) and white women (10%), but vary by income, with poorer women having substantially greater failure rates than more affluent women. CONCLUSIONS: Levels of contraceptive failure vary widely by method, as well as by personal and background characteristics. Income's strong influence on contraceptive failure suggests that access barriers and the general disadvantage associated with poverty seriously impede effective contraceptive practice in the United States.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Current medical abortion care. AU - Creinin, Mitchell D. PY - 2003/12. Y1 - 2003/12. N2 - Medical abortion using mifepristone and a prostaglandin analogue is a highly effective option for early abortion. Since the clinical introduction of mifepristone to the world in 1988, millions of women have had the opportunity to have a safe abortion without primary surgical intervention. The standard method of providing medical abortion has evolved through well-done studies to develop regimens that decrease cost and time to abortion. Currently, mifepristone with misoprostol is the most widely used medical abortion regimen. The most effective option available involves mifepristone 200 mg followed at least 24 hours later by misoprostol 800 μg vaginally. Women can self-administer the misoprostol, with complete abortion rates exceeding 95%. Researchers continue to refine the available regimens to improve outcomes and acceptability.. AB - Medical abortion using mifepristone and a prostaglandin ...
The research, which appears in the Aug. 16 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, found that abortions induced by medication dont increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, preterm birth or low birth weight babies in future pregnancies any more than surgical abortions do.. There are three different methods of medical abortion: a drug called misoprostol used alone; methotrexate followed by misoprostol; and mifepristone followed by misoprostol. The combination of mifepristone and misoprostol is the one most commonly used, according to the study. Mifepristone received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in medical abortion in 2000. By 2004, about 360,000 American women had undergone medical abortions, and the use of medical abortion is likely to increase, the study authors wrote.. While there have been many previous studies on the long-term safety of surgical abortion, most of the studies done on medical abortion have assessed only the short-term safety and ...
The International Planned Parenthood Federation today launched - the Medical Abortion Commodities Database, which houses information on the availability of quality misoprostol, mifepristone and co-packaged mifepristone and misoprostol (combipacks) at national level..

Five of the abortion emergencies involved abortions in the second trimester or later.. These 67 incidents are anecdotal and reflect only abortion-related medical emergencies reported to or uncovered by Operation Rescue. It is not an exhaustive accounting of abortion complications by any means. In fact, there is no true accounting of the actual number of women who suffered abortion-related complications due to chronic under-reporting and the failure of many states to mandate abortion complication reporting.. What we see is just the tip of a very nasty iceberg when it comes to the number of women who suffer serious complications from abortions, said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. But what our data does show is that abortion is not safe, that women suffer horribly on a regular basis from life-threatening abortion injuries, and that sometimes women even die from botched abortions. This is the ugly truth about abortion that Planned Parenthood and the rest of the Abortion Cartel does ...
Background Post abortion complications are the third leading cause of maternal death after hemorrhage and hypertension in Botswana where abortion is not legalized. This study aimed at assessing the management of post abortion complications in Botswana. Methods A retrospective study was conducted at four hospitals in Botswana in 2014. Socio-demographic, patient management and outcomes data were extracted from patients medical records. Descriptive statistics and chi-square test were used to analyze and present the data. Result A total of 619 patients medical records were reviewed. The duration of hospital stay prior to uterine evacuation ranged from less than an hour to 480 hours. All the patients received either prophylactic or therapeutic antibiotics. Use of parenteral antibiotics was significantly associated with severity of abortion, second trimester abortion, use of blood products and the interval between managements decision and uterine evacuation. Uterine evacuation for retained products ...

Abortion remains one of the most controversial sexual health topics and yet is a common experience for women around the world. Making sure that women are practicing safe abortions is integral to womens sexual and reproductive health as well as their sexual rights. South Africa has one of the most progressive and liberal abortion laws in the world, yet women still face major barriers in accessing these services. Introducing medical abortion as another termination of pregnancy option could potentially save womens lives, while reducing the number of unsafe abortions in South Africa. Medical abortion also contributes to fulfilling womens sexual and reproductive rights, providing more choices to best suit their needs. In 2001, the South African Medicines Control Council (MCC) approved the use of mifepristone in conjunction with misoprostol for termination of pregnancy. Currently there is no formal national policy that allows for the provision of medical abortion in public health facilities, and ...

Medication abortion is safe and effective and makes up about one in three abortion procedures in the United States. The most effective regimen for medication abortion involves two medications - mifepristone and misoprostol - taken in conjunction to terminate a pregnancy up to 10 weeks gestation. The nature of medication abortion gives it the potential to be accessible outside of the traditional healthcare setting - meaning people could have more control and autonomy over their abortion experience. However, abortion access is restricted in the US, including how medication abortion pills can be dispensed. In addition to state laws that restrict medication abortion, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that mifepristone be dispensed only at a doctors office, clinic, or hospital, and that clinicians who wants to provide medication abortion have to register with the drugs distributor and stock the medication in their offices. These rules restrict access to mifepristone. A group of ...

The abortion pill is usually safer than a medical abortion or surgical abortion but should only be considered up to 24 weeks (7months) of pregnancy. Medical Abortion pills can be ...
Background & aim: Recently, the use of mifepristone followed by misoprostol after 36-48 h has been demonstrated to be an effective and safe method for the second trimester medical abortion. However, this regimen entails long total abortion time, and consequently increases the financial burden and anxiety in the patients. We hypothesize that one day interval would be also effective and can be used to provide the abortion care. Regarding this, the present study aimed to compare the effectiveness and safety of 24- and 36-hour intervals between the administration of mifepristone and misoprstol for second trimester abortion. Methods: This prospective comparative study was conducted on 70 females who opted for second trimester medical abortion between 12-20 weeks. Mifepristone (200 mg) was followed by sublingual misoprostol (800 mcg) after one and two days in the first and second groups, respectively. Four hours after the administration of 800 mcg misoprostol, all patients received 400 mcg sublingual

When taken together as directed, these two medications will terminate a pregnancy and cause the body to expel it. Its a method of abortion for women in their first ten weeks of pregnancy. Another method of abortion available during the first trimester is aspiration abortion, which is also called surgical abortion.. How does medication abortion work?. Medication abortion works through a combination of two drugs: Mifeprex and Misoprostol. Mifeprex blocks the hormone progesterone, which plays an essential role in maintaining and supporting a pregnancy. When progesterone is blocked, the pregnancy will stop growing. Misoprostol is a drug that causes the uterus to contract, helping the body to expel the pregnancy.. Is medication abortion safe?. Both Mifeprex and Misoprostol are very safe, and have been used by thousands of women to end early ...
Unsafe abortions significant contribution to maternal mortality and morbidity was a critical factor leading to liberalization of Nepals restrictive abortion law in 2002. Careful, comprehensive planning among a range of multisectoral stakeholders, led by Nepals Ministry of Health and Population, enabled the country subsequently to introduce and scale up safe abortion services in a remarkably short timeframe. This paper examines factors that contributed to rapid, successful implementation of legal abortion in this mountainous republic, including deliberate attention to the key areas of policy, health system capacity, equipment and supplies, and information dissemination. Important elements of this successful model of scaling up safe legal abortion include: the pre-existence of postabortion care services, through which health-care providers were already familiar with the main clinical technique for safe abortion; government leadership in coordinating complementary contributions from a wide range of

Surgical abortions -- which are nearly always 100% effective -- can be performed from the time a pregnancy is confirmed until around the end of the second trimester, but second trimester abortions only account for less than around 10% of all abortions, and it is obviously ideal, for someone who wants to terminate, to do so earlier rather than later, physically and emotionally. What type of surgical abortion -- manual vacuum aspiration (MVA), dilation and curettage (D&C) or, more commonly now, dilation and evacuation (D&E) -- depends on the length of the pregnancy and the specific situation. All are currently legal in the U.S. and Canada.. • Manual and/or vacuum aspiration (MVA) or electric vacuum aspiration (EVA) can be done within the first trimester, up to about 13 weeks of pregnancy. It is what is most often used for abortions now, and manual aspiration can be used as soon as four weeks from the last menstrual period. During an aspiration, an injection first numbs the cervix [22] with a ...
A medical abortion uses drugs to empty the contents of the uterus. Medical abortions can be done only early in pregnancy. There are two types of medical abortions performed at the Bay Centre for Birth Control.. 1) Mifepristone and Misoprostol (the abortion pill). Mifepristone is a drug that blocks progesterone, a hormone that is needed to keep the pregnancy going. It causes the pregnancy to detach from the uterus and be expelled. Mifepristone also causes the misoprostol to be more effective.. Misoprostol is a medication that when used after Mifepristone causes the cervix to soften and open up. The uterus then contracts (cramps) to push the pregnancy out.. Mifepristone is given as one pill that is taken by mouth at the clinic visit. The Misoprostol tablets are then taken 1-2 days later and are held in the pouch between your cheek and lower teeth for 30 minutes, and then the remainder is swallowed. This will be done at home. In 90% of cases the uterus will be emptied within 24 hours. Pain ...
Abortion in Bangladesh is illegal under most situations, but menstrual regulation is often used as a substitute. Bangladesh is still governed by the penal code from 1860, where induced abortion is illegal unless the woman in danger. Historically, abortion has been prevalent, especially during the years following the Bangladesh Liberation War. For example, in 1972, the law allowed for abortion for those women who has been raped during the war. In 1976, the Bangladesh National Population Policy unsuccessfully attempted to legalize abortion in the first trimester. Since 1979, menstrual regulation has been the favored alternative to induced abortion, and it is legally permitted because pregnancy cannot be established. In 2012, the Drug Administration for Bangladesh legalised the combination of mifepristone and misoprotol for medical abortion. Part of the family planning program in Bangladesh since 1979, menstrual regulation is a procedure that uses manual vacuum aspiration to make it impossible to ...

Abortion Totals and Trends. Abortions increased in Nebraska from the previous year. There were 1,958 abortions performed in the Cornhusker State in 2017, up three percent from 1,907 in 2016. Chemical abortions rose by an even greater percentage, increasing by 14 percent from 956 in 2016 to 1,086 in 2017. Since 1980, total Nebraska abortions have fallen by 68 percent. From 2001, the first full year after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the use of mifepristone as an abortion drug, chemical abortions in Nebraska have increased by almost 800 percent. Chemical abortions made up 55 percent of all abortions performed in Nebraska during 2017. While Nebraska does not report the state abortion rate, CLI estimates that the rate increased from 5.18 abortions per 1,000 Nebraska women of childbearing age in 2016 to 5.32 in 2017.. State Report Summary. Most of the women getting abortions in Nebraska during 2017 were residents (89 percent). There were 207 women from out-of-state, including 158 ...
Total number of abortions in 2009 was 40 528 [2][3] of which 14 629 (i.e. 3.1%) were spontaneous abortions, 24 636 (60,79%) induced abortions (historically the lowest number ever) of which 77% were mini-interruptions (within 8 weeks of pregnancy). 1,300 ectopic pregnancies were aborted. Total abortions per woman is 0.53, induced abortions is 0.34. As of 2010[update], the abortion rate was 10.7 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44 years.[4] Regionally, the highest abortion ratio is in northern and north-western Bohemia due the structure of the population (in 2002 in Tachov District 31.3% of abortions were induced). The lowest ratios are in rural districts of southern Moravia and Bohemian-Moravian Highlands (in 2002 in Žďár nad Sázavou District 15.5% of abortions were induced).[5][6] Abortion ratios in large industrial cities are generally higher compared to small towns and the countryside. Married women form the largest segment but their ratio is decreasing in favour of unmarried young ...

Many obstetricians knew the law but pharmacists and midwives were less knowledgeable of the law. The law was perceived as liberal but full of gaps and inconsistencies making its interpretation and application a problem. Obstetricians exposure to international treaties and conventions (including WHO statements, ICPD, ICPD + 5, Beijing Conferences) influenced their attitudes towards provision of safe abortion services while midwives attitudes were largely affected by their religious inclinations and (local) social context. Lack of resources such as trained personnel who are willing to provide abortion services, unavailability of manual vacuum aspiration kits and the lack of support and cooperation of hospital administrations also influenced provider actions and hampered abortion care. Exposure of health personnel to trends in abortion care in other countries through conferences and treaties did appear to influence how they thought and acted concerning abortion care. Values clarification ...
However in some countries doctors are accustomed to performing a curettage even though it might not be needed for medical reasons.. You do NOT need a vacuum aspiration if the ultrasound shows that there are still some small remains in the uterus (incomplete abortion) or experience some bleeding after 3 weeks AND you do not have any complaints like pain, fever or heavy bleeding. Small remains in the uterus can be treated with an extra doses of Misoprostol (2 tablets) or you can just wait until your next menstruation. The uterus will most likely empty itself. Regular menstruation comes back 4 to 6 weeks after a medical abortion. After a normal menstruation you should not have any remaining tissue left over in the uterus.. However, in case you do have complaints like fever, persistent pain and heavy bleeding, a surgical intervention called vacuum aspiration is needed. Some doctors still only do a procedure called D&C or sharp curettage. This should not be done!! So ask the doctor what kind of ...
Since legal reform in 2005, health system and community interventions spearheaded by the Ethiopia Ministry of Health have made significant progress in increasing the reach, availability, utilization, and quality of safe abortion care throughout the country. The MoH has worked with a range of donors and development partners, including NGOs such as Ipas and EngenderHealth, in order to make high quality CAC services available at all levels of the public health system. Their efforts have included the development and dissemination of evidenced-based national standards and guidelines in 2006 [6] and a revision in 2014 to incorporate recent WHO recommendations [14]; training of health professionals at all levels of the health system with a particular focus on task-shifting to midlevel providers; integrating SAC and post-abortion contraception into existing reproductive health services; ensuring the sustainable supply of equipment and medications required for SAC; engaging with the private sector to ...
Results: A total of 765,651 abortions were reported to CDC for 2010. Of these abortions, 753,065 (98.4%) were from the 46 reporting areas that provided data every year during 2001-2010. Among these same 46 reporting areas, the abortion rate for 2010 was 14.6 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44 years, and the abortion ratio was 228 abortions per 1,000 live births. Compared with 2009, the total number and rate of reported abortions for 2010 decreased 3% and reached the lowest levels for the entire period of analysis (2001-2010); the abortion ratio was stable, changing only 0.4%. From 2001 to 2010, the total number, rate, and ratio of reported abortions decreased 9%, 10%, and 8%, respectively. Given the 3% decrease from 2009 to 2010 in the total number and rate of reported abortions, in combination with the 5% decrease that had occurred in the previous year from 2008 to 2009, the overall decrease for both measures was greater during 2006-2010 than during 2001-2005, despite the annual variations ...
The food and drug administration has approved long the use of Mifepristone and Misoprostol for medical abortion for a while now. What remains a debate is whether the accessibility is still on the books, as per the knowledge. Fact is there are several underlying facts that need to be seen in terms of awareness. This can very well be documented if the awareness is further explored with medical abortion being accessed by women through mobile. Consequently, buying abortion pills using mobile is just the same as purchasing online abortion pills. The only criteria served here is the online pharmacy sites who have just kept themselves to the desktop version would be less accessible.. Subsequently, the idea of buying abortion pills on the small screen can be a distinct version, still is reliable. Conversely, several countries are still on the verge of getting a permission for medical abortion and have stringent laws against them who breaks it. The US, along with many parts of Europe, UK, parts of ...

347-286-7277. ALBUQUERQUE - Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life have released a new video taken from an undercover phone call placed to Southwestern Womens Options late-term abortion facility that clearly explains how some second and third trimester abortions are performed in New Mexico.. A healthy woman posing as 25 weeks pregnant is given an overview by an abortion worker detailing how the 3-4 day labor and delivery procedure will take place. Late-term abortion is a grueling process that begins every Tuesday with the killing of a baby by a lethal injection of the medication digoxin and culminates at the end of the week when labor is induced and the mother delivers a stillborn child. Pre-born babies can survive outside the womb at 25 weeks, and sometimes earlier in pregnancy.. In a recent rare interview, Curtis Boyd, owner of Southwestern Womens Options claims that he provides abortions to women who are dying if they do not get the abortion, women who have severe congenital ...
This study, based on data from all 89 829 women in the DNBC, displayed a social pattern in the risk of spontaneous abortion. Educational level and income were inversely associated with the risk of spontaneous abortion.. Apart from maternal age, no lifestyle risk factors for spontaneous abortion are well established and few studies have examined the association between socioeconomic position and risk of spontaneous abortion. A few previous studies have reported an association between socioeconomic position and spontaneous abortion7-10 when socioeconomic position was measured by educational level and labour market attachment, and others found no such association.11-14 There are several possible explanations for this. Some studies are small with a diminished possibility of detecting a smaller association. Furthermore, two of these studies adjust for earlier spontaneous abortion in their analyses.11 ,12 Previous spontaneous abortion is associated with a 60% higher risk of spontaneous abortion,22 ...
Roughly a million abortions are performed each year in the United States alone (CDC 2015)[1][2]. This number may be underestimated since the reporting of the abortions is not mandatory in the USA. Although deemed safe, therapeutic abortions, as well as spontaneous miscarriages, can lead to a variety of complications. Most complications are considered minor such as pain, bleeding, infection, and post-anesthesia complications, while others are major, namely uterine atony and subsequent hemorrhage, uterine perforation, injuries to adjacent organs (bladder or bowels), cervical laceration, failed abortion, septic abortion, and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC)[3][4][5]

Media depictions and laws passed in state legislatures regulating abortion suggest abortion-related medical emergencies are common. An accurate understanding of abortion-related emergencies is important for informing policy and practice. We assessed the incidence of abortion-related emergency department (ED) visits in the United States (U.S.). We used a retrospective observational study design using 2009-2013 data from the Nationwide Emergency Department Sample, a nationally representative sample of U.S. ED visits from 947 to 964 hospitals across the U.S. per year. All ED visits among women of reproductive age (15-49) were included. We categorized ED visits by abortion relatedness and treatments received, and assessed whether the visit was for a major incident (defined as requiring blood transfusion, surgery, or overnight inpatient stay). We estimated the proportion of visits that were abortion-related and described the characteristics of patients making these visits, the diagnoses and subsequent
At your first full visit, which will last about two hours, your provider will perform an ultrasound exam to ensure that you are no more than 10 weeks pregnant, and will review the medication abortion process with you. While at the Clinic, you will swallow a tablet of Mifeprex. Your provider will then send you home with 4 tablets of Misoprostol and instructions for the next step.. Between 24 and 48 hours after you took Mifeprex at the Clinic, youll take four pills of Misoprostol at home, and you should expect to have cramping and bleeding. For most women, the abortion will be complete within 24 hours after taking Misoprostol. Between 6 and 16 days after your first appointment, youll come back to the Clinic one more time, so your provider can make sure the abortion is complete.. For more information about medication abortion, please take a look at our FAQ..

The number of abortion facilities in the United States has been declining, and many midwestern and southern states have few abortion clinics left. In response, supporters of legal abortion have advanced some medically risky proposals to expand abortion access. For instance, in 2013, the California state legislature passed a bill allowing nurses and midwives, in addition to doctors, to perform abortions. In 2008, Planned Parenthood in Iowa began offering telemed abortions - chemical abortions administered to patients who ingest abortion-inducing medication without a physician physically present. In 2016, abortion facilities in Maine also started offering telemed abortions.. Many people are concerned about the safety of this type of abortion procedure. In fact, 19 states have passed legislation banning the practice, putting supporters of legal abortion on the defensive. Last week, the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology published a study, which purports to show that telemed abortions taking place in ...
Study participants were asked if abortion should be generally available, allowed, but more limited, illegal, with few exceptions or never permitted. As expected, Republicans were more conservative than Democrats.. Nevertheless, 10 percent of liberal Democrats chose the most anti-abortion option and 13 percent said abortion should be illegal, except in cases of rape, incest or to save a mothers life. Then, 14 percent said abortion rights should be restricted with new laws, which … might include a partial-birth abortion ban, parental-notification laws, mandatory waiting periods and even a ban on late-term abortions. …. Meanwhile, 12 percent of moderate and conservative Democrats backed a complete abortion ban, while another 39 percent said abortion should be illegal, with few exceptions. … Another 20 percent backed legalized abortion, with more restrictions. Once again, church attendance seemed to influence these views.. In all, 37 percent of liberals and 71 percent of ...

Burkhart has no medical background. She once worked for George Tillers now defunct political action committee as a lobbyist. Later, her own Trust Women PAC was disbanded after Operation Rescue uncovered improper disbursements to South Wind to help finance the abortion clinics opening and other financial improprieties that earned the PAC multiple fines from the Federal Election Commission.. The abortionist believed to have been on duty at the time was Cheryl Chastine, who had little or no surgical abortion experience before going to work for Burkhart in 2013.. Accessing abortion-related 911 records in Wichita has been problematic since Operation Rescue made public a 911 recording placed on January 13, 2005, from what was then Tillers Womens Health Care Services abortion clinic. The patient who was the subject of that call was 19-year old Christin Gilbert, who died from a botched third-trimester abortion procedure.. In the 2005 recording, one of Tillers receptionists can be heard telling the ...
