Unwanted pregnancy: what to do?
The reasons that prompt a woman to decide on the termination of pregnancy can be very different. The most common factors influencing the choice are: a partner’s unwillingness to have a child, the socio-economic conditions of a woman’s life, pregnancy before reaching adulthood, and contra-health. The personal right of every woman to make this or that choice.
In our country, an unwanted pregnancy can be terminated for medical reasons, deprivation of parental rights, death of the child’s father or rape. Abortion can be made in a gynecological consultation. Before the procedure, the doctor will confirm the presence of pregnancy and prescribe the necessary tests. In order to protect the woman’s health from undesirable consequences, the specialist will choose the most optimal method of abortion.
The purpose of this or that method of abortion depends not only on the patient’s health indicators, but also important is the period of development of the fetus. For example, the non-surgical method, which is carried out with the help of medicines, is prescribed only up to the 8th embryonic development week.
In the early stages of development, the fetal egg is loosely connected to the uterine wall, so it is easily torn from the uterine cavity. This is the most cleansing way for the patient’s health. An alternative to such an abortion can be folk remedies, which, just as drugs act on the muscles of the uterus, causing their contraction. However, it is worth remembering that the use of folk remedies is possible only in the first weeks of prenatal development.
