Side effects of pregnancy termination

According to the best record based study of deaths following pregnancy and abortion, a 1997 government funded study in Finland, women who abort are approximately four times more likely to die in the following year than women who carry their pregnancies to term.
The leading causes of abortion related maternal deaths within a week of the surgery are hemorrhage, infection, embolism, anesthesia, and undiagnosed ectopic pregnancies. Abortion increases the risk of placenta previa in later pregnancies (a life threatening condition for both the mother and her wanted pregnancy) by seven to fifteen fold.
Abortion is associated with cervical and uterine damage which may increase the risk of premature delivery, complications of labor and abnormal development of the placenta in later pregnancies. PID is a potentially life threatening disease which can lead to an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy and reduced fertility.
In a survey of 1428 women researchers found that pregnancy loss, and particularly losses due to induced abortion, was significantly associated with an overall lower health.
Abortion is linked with increased depression, violent behavior, alcohol and drug abuse, replacement pregnancies, and reduced maternal bonding with children born subsequently. This increased risk is associated with the prior abortion due to lowered self esteem, a conscious or unconscious desire for a replacement pregnancy, and increased sexual activity post-abortion.
Im strongly against abortions, BUT, i am a mother of a 2 yr old and 5wks pregnant with another baby. Please check out our pregnancy help page to find resources to help you with friendship, good advise, financial support, and more. In either event, whether he becomes supportive or continues to encourage the idea of having an abortion, you need to expand your support network by contacting a pregnancy help center and reaching out to friends and family members who will give you emotional support and who will reinforce your decision to protect your child and yourself from an unwanted abortion.
Emergency contraception does not interrupt an on-going pregnancy - it is not a form of abortion. Side effects from emergency contraception do occur in 5-20% of women, with slight nausea or vomiting (for a maximum of 24 hours). If an abortion has not worked at all, then a woman may decide to try another abortion procedure or go ahead with the pregnancy. Some women continue to experience signs of pregnancy such as morning sickness and breast tenderness after an abortion.

Choice on Termination of Pregnancy (TOP) Act 92 of 1996 (as amended)The aim of the Act is to give women with unwanted pregnancies access to free and safe TOP, with the state having an obligation to deliver the service. Only a trained healthcare professional may perform the TOP in a designated facility up to 12 weeks of pregnancy.
Counselling and information about her rights must be offered to the client before and after the termination. Only the informed consent of the pregnant woman is required, regardless of her age, marital status, culture or religion. Mosaic Termination of Pregnancy (TOP) ProgrammeEvery woman with an unplanned and unwanted pregnancy has her own particular circumstances why she can’t continue with her pregnancy. If you want to make an appointment for an abortion at Mosaic’s Wynberg Clinic, please call the office at 021-761 7585 and tell the receptionist that you want to make an appointment for termination of pregnancy. To make a final decision regarding the TOP, the nurse will do a physical examination which will include an abdominal and vaginal exam to determine the size of the pregnancy.
ContraceptionAfter a Termination of Pregnancy, the Family Planning Nurse will explain the various methods of contraception available to you and provide you with the method you have chosen. Contraception does not however provide immediate protection against falling pregnant nor does it prevent you contracting a sexually transmitted infection and HIV.
If you experience any problems or side effects from the contraceptive method that you have chosen, DO NOT stop taking it; rather, make an appointment with the nurse again to discuss the symptoms and to review a new method. Reproductive Health Clinic: Lentegeur Clinic, Mitchells PlainPlease note that only MVA abortions (surgical abortions) are available at Lentegeur Clinic up to and including 12 weeks of pregnancy.
The risk of uterine perforation is increased for women who have previously given birth and for those who receive general anesthesia at the time of the abortion.(6) Uterine damage may result in complications in later pregnancies and may eventually evolve into problems which require a hysterectomy, which itself may result in a number of additional complications and injuries including osteoporosis.
For example, promiscuity and abortion are each linked to increased rates of PID and ectopic pregnancies.
Symptoms of intrusion in PAS cases include: recurrent and intrusive thoughts about the abortion or aborted child, flashbacks in which the woman momentarily reexperiences an aspect of the abortion experience, nightmares about the abortion or child, or anniversary reactions of intense grief or depression on the due date of the aborted pregnancy or the anniversary date of the abortion. Women with a prior abortion experience are four times more likely to abort a current pregnancy than those with no prior abortion history.

Subsequent abortions may occur because of conflicted desires to become pregnant and have a child and continued pressures to abort, such as abandonment by the new male partner.
Infections are known to lead to more serious problems, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, if they are not treated quickly and effectively.
After the 20th week, if two doctors or a doctor and a trained professional, is of the opinion that the pregnancy could endanger the woman's life, it could result in abnormalities of the fetus, or pose a risk of injury to the fetus. To have a pregnancy terminated is not an easy decision to make; you might have mixed feelings about your decision.
If the pregnancy is 12 weeks and under, the nurse will discuss the TOP with you and explain what will happen on the day of the procedure. This is done with a small plastic tube which is connected to a handheld aspirator with which the nurse sucks out the contents of the womb (blood clots and products from the pregnancy). A mentally challenged or unconscious woman's pregnancy may be terminated only under special conditions. If the pregnancy is over 12 weeks but less than 20 weeks, you will be referred to a hospital that will be able to help you.
It is possible to fall pregnant soon after a TOP and as your menstrual cycle may only begin 4 – 8 weeks later, it is important to decide what contraceptive method you will use to avoid falling pregnant again. Other women, no matter how compelling the reasons they have for seeking an abortion, may still perceive the termination of their pregnancy as the violent killing of their own child.
A pharmacy-bought pregnancy test will not be able to tell you if you are still pregnant, because the hormone that it measures may take up to a month to return to normal after the abortion.
