FAQ

1. What is legal abortion?

It’s the end of pregnancy. According to the World Health Organization, abortion is the termination of a pregnancy that does not exceed 22 weeks of gestation.

At Clínica Ginecológica Sants we understand that abortion is a failure to the desire to properly control and/or assume motherhood. And it’s the ultimate step to take, that no woman wants to take, unless she has no other choice.

For us, as for anyone, it is very difficult or almost impossible to comment on this issue. The only thing we firmly believe in is that in the face of an unwanted pregnancy situation, “you get to decide”.

2. Methods to terminate pregnancy at Clínica Médica Sants

1) Medical abortion

This method can only be used in patients who are up to 7 weeks gestation at most. It consists in the administration of 2 drugs:

– Mifepristone drug (MYFEGINE 200 mg): Its function is to stop the implantation and continuity of pregnancy. A single dose is given orally at the clinic.

– Misoprostol drug (CYTOTEC 200 mg): Its function is to induce uterine contractions and softening of the cervix that cause the expulsion of pregnancy. In this case 4 doses of this drug are administered vaginally and the patient herself can do it at home.

2) Surgical method

A) Method by aspiration or Method of Karman

It is the preferred method for performing abortions during the first trimester of gestation, i.e. in all pregnancies not exceeding 12 weeks.

It’s a quick and safe method. It allows the woman to get back almost immediately to her usual activity after the intervention.

The gynecologist will perform a vaginal touch to check the position of the uterus, then insert a speculum into the vagina to visualize the uterine cervix, after preparation of the area will enter through the cervical canal to the uterine cavity to suck its contents using flexible and harmless cannulas, selected by the specialist according to the gestation time.

It can be performed with Local Anesthesia or EV Sedation depending on the patient’s choice and physician’s criteria.

B) Method by Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) or Finks method (>12 weeks up to 22 weeks gestation)

It is the method of choice for termination of pregnancy between 12 weeks and 22 weeks gestation.

It is based on the four basic principles of surgery: working sterile, easy access to the operating field, adequate instrumentation and absence of blood.

– Absence of blood: it is achieved by not using drugs (vasodilator anesthetics) such as Halothane or Fluothane. Ethereal drugs (Methergin or Syntocinon) are used.

– For access: dilated with conical dilators (Model Ambler-Hawkins), up to 18mm depending on gestational age.

– For fragmentation and evacuation: It has a special forceps, strong and thin with which it is possible to maneuver easily with an expansion of 14 mm in gestations up to 18 weeks. And another special forceps that maneuver with an expansion of 18 mm in gestations from 18 weeks to 22 weeks.

Considerations:

1. Depending on the physician’s criteria and patient profile, pre-dilation preparation of the cervix may be required with the administration of anti-ulcerative drugs.

2. Anesthesia: in all cases E.V. Sedation is preferable. This way there will be no pain during the intervention.

Price: from 300 euros, For other gestation weeks consult our rates and contact the Clínica Ginecológica Sants.

E. What if you have a negative RH blood group? (Anti-D vaccine)

Women with a negative blood group who have an induced or spontaneous abortion or delivery are prescribed an injection of anti-D immunoglobulin because if the fetus is a positive blood group and there are blood exchanges between the fetus and the woman, it can develop antibodies in their blood that can affect the next baby you wish to have. This vaccine has a separate cost between 60-90 euros.

4. How long does the entire surgical abortion process take?

Depending on the gestation time and the method chosen: method by aspiration (Karman method) or method by D&E (Finks method).

5. Is the surgical abortion painful?

Surgical abortion with local anesthesia: Clínica Ginecológica Sants cares that during the procedure with local anesthesia the patient feels as little discomfort as possible, but this also depends on their sensitivity. Patients usually consider it painless, most of them tolerate it very well.

Surgical IVE with intravenous: In this case there is no pain and in addition you can quickly get back to your daily routine.

6. Description of the procedures to follow before, during and after the medical abortion

A. Before the intervention:

1) Documentation required

  • Patients over 18: must bring an ID (D.N.I, N.I.E, passport, etc.)
  • Underage patients: you must bring your own ID, be accompanied by a parent (who must bring their ID as well), and a document that confirms that you are family, like the family register book or your birth certificate.

2) First gynecological visit:

The patient will first be seen by a doctor who will perform an ultrasound and give you all the information necessary to choose the right method. If the requirements are met, the intervention can be performed the same day.

B. Intervention:

Steps to follow:

1. First visit: Administration of a single oral dose of MYFEGINE 200 mg at the clinic.
In 40-50% of cases, taking this pill already occurs the expulsion of gestation in pregnancies not exceeding 49 days. If this is the case, it will be accompanied by heavy bleeding (in 70% of cases it is higher than the usual menstruation) and abdominal pain. Diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, chills, fever, etc. may also occur.

2. 48 hours after step 1, administration of 4 doses, vaginally, of CYTOTEC 200 mg at the patient’s home.

48 hours after administration of MYFEGINE 200 mg, the patient, at home, have to administer 4 CYTOTEC 200 mg tablets vaginally. It is important that 30 minutes before administration, the patient takes PARACETAMOL and CODEIN.

Expulsion, in the vast majority of cases, may occur in the first 6 hours after administration of this drug. In other cases, it may occur later, and during the entire period you may have more pain and bleeding than during periods. We RECOMMEND in this period to take NOLOTIL in vial, with some water, one vial every 4 hours.
Once complete ejection occurs, bleeding and pain will stop.

C. Confirmation and Control:

1. Second visit: confirmation of the termination of pregnancy
After approximately one week a second visit has to be conducted during which the Doctor will confirm the expulsion of the pregnancy with an abdominal ultrasound. If the expulsion has not been completed, a new appointment will be arranged 48 hours after the same day. It should be noted that this method has an effectiveness of 99% and only 0.5-1% should undergo aspiration due to the failure of medical abortion.

2. Third visit: control
14-15 days after the completion of the abortion process, a control ultrasound will be performed to ensure that the process has completed successfully and without prejudice to the patient.

7. What side effects expect from an abortion?

 1) After intervention (both medical and surgical abortion) a number of normal side effects may occur that should NOT worry patients because they are part of the recovery process:

  • Have blood loss that can be: null, scarce, or similar as during menstruation.
  • Menstruation takes 30 to 60 days to come back.
  • Having pain less than or similar as during menstruation.

2) In some cases, after abortion side effects may also occur that are NOT considered normal so, if any of the following occurs, the patient will require medical attention:

  • More abundant blood loss than during menstruation.
  • Fever (>38°C)
  • Pain more intense than during menstruation.
