Abortion methods used in Russia

1 Instrumentalwhich is carried out by curettage of the uterus.

On the one hand, this method is the most reliable, and the probability that the pregnancy will continue is almost zero. But on the other hand, when scraping, there is a possibility of infection in the uterus. There are also known cases of puncture of the uterus, when the only way out may be its removal. And if this damage is not noticed in time, the consequences can be deadly.

2 Vacuum or mini abortion. Of course, the word "mini" does not mean the number of consequences, but is associated only with the size of the ovum. A thin nozzle is inserted into the uterus, which with the help of a vacuum separates the embryo.

In this case, the injury of the uterus and cervical damage is minimal, respectively, the likelihood of unpleasant consequences is reduced. With this method it is very important to control the complete elimination of all parts of the ovum from the uterus using ultrasound. An ultrasound scan is necessary and before an abortion to determine the duration of pregnancy.

This type of termination of pregnancy is possible for up to 12 weeks, but the possibility of carrying it out rather depends on the size of the ovum.

3 Medical abortion refers to non-surgical types of abortion, that is, eliminates any instrumental intervention in the uterus.

Abortion occurs after taking the drug Mifepristone, which blocks the action of progesterone - a hormone that supports pregnancy. And on the very first day after its administration, the embryo dies. After that, the woman takes the following drug, misoprostol, which causes the opening of the cervix and the contraction of the uterus, resulting in a dead embryo being taken out.

Carrying out this type of abortion is possible for up to 6-7 weeks.

Both of these drugs are sold only on prescription, and their use occurs in the hospital. After taking the first pill, the woman goes home and returns the next day exactly a day later to take the second pill. She then remains in the hospital for several hours and is being monitored. After the onset of bleeding and rejection of the embryo, she is allowed to go home. A week after the abortion, an ultrasound scan is performed.

After an abortion, you need to be carefully protected, since pregnancy is possible in the next cycle.

The day of the beginning of the next cycle is the day of abortion. It is best to use condoms for this, as they also protect against infection, which is very important in this period. And, of course, it is necessary to radically revise the methods of pre-abortion used before abortion so that the situation does not happen again.

What is interrupted sexual intercourse (PPA)?

Interrupted sexual intercourse (PPA) is a way to avoid pregnancy, in which a man removes the penis from the vagina before ejaculation occurs.

The difficulty is in time to react to the approaching orgasm.

In addition, a small amount of sperm is found in the male lubricant, the release of which cannot be controlled.

Does this method apply to contraception?

So, interrupted sexual intercourse and pregnancy. Interrupted sexual intercourse with only a stretch can be called a method of contraception. Firstly, it does not perform one of the most important functions of contraception - protection from sexually transmitted diseases.. Secondly, its effectiveness in preventing pregnancy is low.

If you imagine the ideal PPA, during which the man extracted the penis in time, the chances of fertilization are really small. Only a small drop of preseminal fluid enters the female genital tract.

In reality, the ideal option is not always possible, and with the regular use of the PPA method, the probability of failure increases significantly.

The following factors can significantly reduce the already low efficiency of this method of protection:

  • prostatitis with spermatorrhea (seminal fluid incontinence) in a man
  • several sexual acts in a row, when part of the semen remains on the head,
  • low level of self-control in men
  • ovulation in women.

Pros and cons of the method

Let's start with what makes PPA so attractive.:

  1. Simplicity - no manipulations and preparations are required, you can quickly start sexual intercourse. All you need is to manage to get the penis out of the vagina in time.
  2. Comprehensibility. Often people do not use more complicated methods of contraception because they do not understand the principle of their work and consider them harmful to health. For example, intrauterine devices or hormonal drugs may look dangerous and mysterious. Do not let semen into the vagina - a principle that everyone understands.
  3. No contraindications. PAP does not cause allergies and hormonal disorders, does not deprive sexual intercourse of natural sensations.
  4. Availability. This method is free and is suitable for those cases when there are no other contraceptive devices at hand. For couples practicing PAP, sex is available everywhere and always.

So, all the positive aspects of interrupted sexual intercourse boil down to the fact that this method is easy to apply, but ease does not mean the safety and efficiency of the method.

What are the disadvantages of PPA?

  1. The chances of unwanted pregnancy with interrupted sexual intercourse are quite high, since many factors reduce its effectiveness. Even if a couple practices this method perfectly, sometimes fertilization happens due to the sperm that is in the male lubricant. If you are protected in this way on a regular basis, the likelihood that the mistake will happen during the fertilization period increases.
  2. PPA contributes to the spread of sexually transmitted infections.
  3. Interrupted sexual intercourse is psychologically uncomfortable for partners, as it keeps them in constant tension. Over time, inevitably there are problems with getting an orgasm.
  4. PAP can harm male sexual function. It increases the likelihood of developing prostatitis, impotence and infertility.

When partners trust each other, do not have sexually transmitted diseases, and are ready for an accidental pregnancy, there is no harm in the fact that they will be protected in this way.

But even in this case, it is better to alternate interrupted sexual intercourse with any other method of contraception, in order to reduce its negative impact on the psyche and sexual function..

The effectiveness of PPA

The low effectiveness of PPA is due to the fact that a man has a preseminal fluid released before an orgasm.

In some men, its amount can reach 5 ml.

In composition, it resembles sperm, but its function is different - it is needed for easy sliding of the penis inside the vagina.

This fluid may contain small amounts of sperm..

The chances of getting pregnant from the pre-semen fluid increase dramatically if sexual intercourse coincides with the best day for conceiving.

The Pearl Index for PPA is in the range from 4 to 18. This is an approximate percentage of women who become pregnant within a year with regular use of this method. The numbers are quite high, considering that not all couples use PPA correctly.

In addition, almost all types of genital infections are transmitted through male lubrication.. For example, HIV is found in most of the preseed samples of infected men.

We considered interrupted sexual intercourse and the likelihood of pregnancy, found out if a pregnancy can occur during an interrupted act, now let's talk about the negative aspects of the method itself.

Side effects for man and woman

Let's start with those side effects that affect both male and female health. First, the risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases..

Secondly, the negative effects of psychological stress, which is always accompanied by interrupted sexual intercourse: a decrease in libido, the inability to reach orgasm, and nervous disorders on this basis.

For women, PAP threatens unwanted pregnancy.

In addition, the unsuccessful interrupted sexual intercourse often ends with taking emergency contraceptive drugs that cause great damage to women's health.

In men, regular interruption of sexual intercourse contributes to disorders in the sexual sphere.

Premature ejaculation, disturbed blood flow in the genitals, congestion in the prostate gland, erectile dysfunction - this is not a complete list of possible troubles.

Interrupted act: the probability of pregnancy

Is pregnancy possible with an interrupted act? The probability of fertilization for this method of protection depends on the day of the female cycle.

PPA is most effective several days before or immediately after menstruation, although this option does not provide a 100% guarantee of protection from pregnancy.. Female ovulation is an unpredictable process, sometimes it occurs atypical for her time. However, the probability of pregnancy with interrupted sexual intercourse is quite high in any case.

Further more about the interrupted act and the probability of pregnancy during ovulation.

On ovulation days

The fertility phase, when the egg is ready for fertilization, begins at the moment of ovulation and ends approximately 48 hours after it. Here 24 hours is given for the error in determining the time of ovulation.

Remember that sperm can live in the female body from two to seven days.

So the use of PPA a few days before ovulation will be risky. The probability of pregnancy with interrupted PA in the days of ovulation is very high.

A woman can calculate the safest days for PPA. This takes time and money, since it will be necessary to track ovulation on a calendar, measure basal temperature, do ovulation tests.

Interrupted act and pregnancy: statistics

The effectiveness of all methods of contraception is measured by the Pearl index. It shows the average number of conceptions per year for hundreds of women practicing this method.

It is calculated in two versions.:

  1. For a “perfect”, flawlessly correct use of the contraceptive method.
  2. For the usual practice of using the method, including errors and external factors.

So, is it possible to get pregnant if you interrupt sexual intercourse, you now know. Interrupted sexual intercourse can not be called a complete method of contraception. It does not protect against sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy after an interrupted act may occur.

If a couple practices contraception by interruption for several years and fertilization does not occur, there is a possibility that someone of the partners is sterile. However, if both partners are healthy and ready for the appearance of the child, the use of PPA is quite acceptable.

What types of abortions are there?

Before making a final decision, a woman should think. Such a manipulation is fraught with consequences on the part of the reproductive system - many girls, having suffered an abortion, have difficulty conceiving. If the decision is made, it is necessary to contact the health facility where you can get information about the types of abortions and the timing of their implementation. Among the existing methods of interrupting gestation are worth noting:

  • medical abortion - performed by taking drugs that kill the embryo and expelling the ovum to the outside,
  • vacuum aspiration (mini-abortion) - manipulation carried out with the help of an aspirator acting on the principle of a vacuum cleaner,
  • surgical method (scraping) - is carried out using special tools that clean the uterine cavity.

Types of early abortions

It is worth noting that the interruption procedure is feasible already from 3 weeks, the time when an embryo can be detected in the uterine cavity using ultrasound. Telling about the types of termination of pregnancy in the early stages, it is necessary to first mention the medabort. Its advantages are the complete absence of hardware or surgical intervention in the reproductive system. It is carried out by the use of special medicines. The degree of manipulation efficiency is 98%.

Vacuum aspiration method involves removal of the ovum from the uterine cavity using a special device. By the time the procedure lasts no more than 10 minutes. Treats surgical methods, but is sparing of those. It is feasible in the early stages of gestation, until the egg is firmly fixed in the endometrium. The method can be used as a supplement - it is carried out after a medical abortion to make sure that the embryo is completely expelled, in order to eliminate tissue residues.

How is medical abortion?

Among all existing types of abortion, this is recognized as the safest type of abortion. It has a minimum of consequences, does not require special equipment and clinical conditions. This is carried out exclusively in the walls of medical institutions, under the supervision and control of physicians. There is a certain number of drugs that can be used in this procedure. The classic option is the use of mifepristone.

Before taking the medicine, the doctor performs an ultrasound scan, evaluates the patient's condition. After this, the documentary consent to an abortion is signed. Under the supervision of a woman takes the drug. After 3-4 hours, the patient, making sure there are no complications, is allowed by the doctors to leave the clinic. After 3-5 days, re-admission is carried out, with inspection of the uterine cavity and evaluation of the performed manipulation.

Pre-install mirrors, dilators are used to open the uterine cervix. Moving the tip through the cavity, the doctor completely removes its contents. For several hours, the patient is observed, after which she leaves the clinic.

How can I terminate a pregnancy?

Termination of pregnancy is a problem that every third girl faces. If you look at the medical statistics, you can see that Every year, unplanned children become more and more.

At present, abortion is an officially authorized procedure that can be done legally and illegally. Despite the difficulties that she may cause, women still risk and decide on her. What kind of abortion is better?

Depending on the duration of pregnancy There are such modern types of surgical abortions:

  • vacuum,
  • surgical,
  • saline,
  • abortion through cesarean section.

The following can be classified as non-surgical:

  • medicamentous
  • conducted by magnetic induction,
  • conducted through acupuncture,
  • conducted with the help of homeopathic remedies.

Before you begin the procedure, the gynecologist must be assigned tests. For each species can be their own research of biological materials.

How to choose a quality abortion?

To determine the best type of abortion can not a pregnant woman, and the doctor. He must take into account the state of health of the patient and what the consequences may be. The most popular are such species:

  1. medicamentous
  2. vacuum,
  3. curettage curettage
  4. salt procedure
  5. abortion through cesarean section.
  • Medical abortion do with the use of hormonal drugs.

    Their task is to detach the ovum and expel it from the uterus.

    The ideal time for such an interruption is 4-5 weeks or less.

    Funds can be assigned only if the patient does not have allergies to them.

    You need to take the pills with a gap of 2 days, and you can do it at home, which is suitable for women who do not like to be in the hospital.

    After that within two weeks you can see abundant discharge and blood clots.

    This is done in order to protect the pregnant from unpleasant consequences.

    The procedure involves pumping out a fertilized egg from the uterus.

    It should be carried out as early as possible, until the embryo is so strongly retained behind the uterus.

    Moreover, not all women can do this procedure. Curettage curettage is an accessible surgical procedure for everyone.

    A woman can decide on such a procedure on her own or in the event that with the development of the fetus there is a development of various pathologies.

    This method is used for a long time, but despite this, it still has some dangerous consequences.

    The walls of the uterus may be slightly damaged, so recovery after this procedure takes a little longer. Salt abortion is that a caustic solution is injected into the amniotic bubble, which immobilizes the fetus for 48 hours.

    Next, carry out the artificial stimulation of labor.

    This technique is not used as often as its effectiveness is not so high, and abortion by other methods is considered not so painful.

    It is carried out according to the prescription of the doctor. Cesarean abortion can be performed by dissecting the cervix and lower segment.

    The procedure greatly facilitates the process of extraction of the ovum.

    But to use such a method can only absolutely healthy women who have passed a number of mandatory tests and have received permission from the doctor for this procedure.

What does the solution depend on?

The choice of abortion depends, first of all, on the state of health of the pregnant woman, as well as on the terms, which are indicated for each species on an individual basis.

In some situations, the doctor can make an exception, but only if he is confident that the method chosen will be the safest.

Now, every woman can get rid of a child for up to 12 weeks, but we will consider all the existing methods and the timing of their implementation in more detail, with a description of all the options for their implementation.

  • Pharmacological procedure. It is carried out in the event that the period is not more than 6 weeks. The account starts from the first day of the last menstrual period.
  • Vacuum intervention. Conducted at an early date, namely until the 7th week. After a fertilized egg increases significantly in size and it will be much more difficult to carry out the procedure.
  • Surgical curettage. It can be done in any trimester, but often the indication for such a procedure is abnormal development of the fetus.


Artistic procedure - This is an abortion, which is carried out at the request of the patient or as directed by the doctor. You can do it in any medical institution.

There are two types of such interruption:

  • spontaneous. Miscarriage occurs independently without the intervention of a doctor or woman
  • artifactual. Pregnancy is intentionally interrupted by resorting to the most appropriate method.

Thus, it can be said that artifactual abortion is a simple procedure that is available in both public and private clinics for all girls without exception. Spend it on different terms, depending on the situation.


Under the concept of social abortion understand the usual termination of pregnancy according to social indicators. Spend it on a period of 13 to 22 weeks at the expense of the state budget.

Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation, such The procedure can be carried out if the woman has the following indications:

  1. deprivation of parental rights
  2. pregnancy, which was the result of rape,
  3. pregnant woman in prison
  4. having a husband’s disability
  5. death of a husband during pregnancy.

Urgent abortion is the taking of a medication immediately after consultation and a full gynecologist's examination on the day of treatment to the clinic.

The advantage of this method can not be overemphasized:

  • it does not harm the female body,
  • it is possible to immediately evaluate the result,
  • after complications occur in rare cases.


Official abortion is no different from the usual and it can be done in any way possible.

However, there is one significant difference that should certainly be taken into account.

This species differs from other species in that before the start of the procedure a woman fills out papers in which she says that she is ready to voluntarily get rid of an unwanted pregnancy.

In this case, the consequences after such actions are only the woman who decided to terminate the pregnancy.


In conclusion, it is worth noting that abortion is a very serious step, decide which can not every woman. Before you realize that you want this, weigh the pros and cons and make the right decision. But do not delay with time, because so you will have more chances to choose a less dangerous method.

Vacuum abortion: a description of the methodology

Vacuum mini-abortion is a minimally invasive surgical method for removing an ovum from the uterus with a special suction. Pregnancy interruption by vacuum is carried out without dilation of the cervix, penetration into its cavity with surgical instruments and curettage. Compared with other types of surgical abortions, vacuum abortions are considered benign.

Vacuum abortion is a minimally invasive surgery, therefore it is called mini-abortion. The procedure duration is 10-15 minutes, hospitalization in the hospital is not required. An abortion is performed without anesthesia, under local anesthesia.

General anesthesia is not necessary for the procedure and is not desirable, but at the request of the patient the doctor can do it.

Knowing how to do a vacuum abortion, it is important for a woman to psychologically prepare for the operation. For manipulation a special device is used - an aspirator, which consists of a cannula and a special catheter. A disposable catheter penetrates directly into the patient's uterus and with the help of a cannula attached to it, the fetal egg is sucked away.

Abortion vacuum done after the survey.. In the absence of contraindications, the patient is placed in the gynecological chair and the vagina is treated with an antiseptic.

After the injection of the anesthetic drug, a solid tube (cannula) is inserted into the uterus and a suction egg is sucked through the catheter using a special apparatus. The contents of the uterine cavity is collected in a container. This operation ends.

Indications and contraindications for mini-abortion

Vacuum aspiration is recommended for minimal periods of pregnancy. The optimal time for vacuum abortion is 4-5 weeks. At this time, the fetus is not yet attached to the walls of the uterus, therefore it is quickly removed.

Contraindications to this type of surgery are:

  1. Infectious diseases in the acute stage. The reason for this is the possibility of infection in the genitals and the development of complications and inflammation in the uterus. The doctor will recommend initial treatment for the infection.
  2. Ectopic pregnancy. Vacuum aspiration is impossible in this case, since the fetus is located in the fallopian tube.
  3. Insufficiency of blood clotting.

Further, what to choose for abortion: farm and mini abortion? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each?

Advantages and disadvantages of vacuum termination of pregnancy

The undoubted advantages of the technique are:

  • minimal injury of the cervix and mucous membrane.
  • The possibility of the operation without hospitalization in the hospital.
  • The recovery rate after the procedure.
  • Minimal risks of complications.

The disadvantages of vacuum abortion are the following factors:

  • risk of incomplete removal of the fetus.
  • Limited periods of pregnancy.
  • Danger of injury to the uterus.

Next, which abortion is better than medical or vacuum?

What is better than a vacuum or medical abortion?

Both types of abortion are benign and used in the early stages. Approximately the same result - the effectiveness of both methods 95-98%. The choice of a particular method depends on the duration of pregnancy. Medical mini-abortion is most effective up to 4 weeks. Vacuum abortion - in terms of 4 to 6 weeks.

In fact, medical abortion is close in action to a natural miscarriage. Therefore, about 60% of women prefer to terminate an unwanted pregnancy with this method.

According to pharmacologists, the drug for medical abortion mifepristone should not be used in patients younger than 18 and older than 35 years. Therefore, vacuum aspiration is preferred for them.

For some women, the determining factor is the issue price issue. Medical abortion is much more expensive than vacuumtherefore, constricted patients prefer surgery.

Sometimes it becomes necessary to conduct a vacuum abortion done after medication. The indication for the procedure is incomplete release of the ovum after taking an abortive means.

Vacuum is also used if the miscarriage does not start after taking mifepristone. According to statistics, this happens in 4-5% of the use of medical abortion. It is impossible to leave such a pregnancy, because the drug has a negative effect on the fetus.

Rehabilitation period

Rehabilitation after vacuum abortion is a very important moment for the preservation of women's health. Small abortion also affects the body, like any other intervention.

The body is restored after a vacuum abortion 3-4 weeks.

The first 6-7 days is the most crucial period when control of the patient’s condition by the doctor is necessary. A woman needs to visit a gynecologist for 3-4 days after surgery.

At the reception, the doctor assesses whether the fertilized egg has completely left the uterus. According to statistics, in 1% of cases pregnancy persists. By the way, very often you can hear this question: is it possible to do a vacuum abortion after a medical abortion? Decisions of this kind are made only after consultation with the gynecologist.

Such a probability exists if the doctor initially incorrectly determined the duration of pregnancy. With this course of events, pregnancy will continue, but the fetus will develop with abnormalities.

Alcohol is strictly forbidden., as it can cause increased blood circulation in the pelvic organs and cause bleeding. It is also worth refusing from active physical exercise and weightlifting so that the abdominal muscles do not strain.

Pulling or aching pain in the lower abdomen continues for several days after surgery. Normal pains resemble intermittent with menstruation. Pain can be removed with antispasmodics. If you start cramping or growing pain, it is urgent to contact a gynecologist.

To prevent the development of infection after the vacuum abortion method, the patient is prescribed antibiotics. The risk of developing infections during the postoperative period is large enough. In this regard, a woman is not recommended to bathe in open reservoirs for three months, to visit a bath.

Discharge, bleeding and menstruation after aspiration.

Normally, discharge from the uterus after the procedure lasts 10-14 days.

The bloody brownish-red discharge indicates that the blood coagulates normally and the uterus is cleansed normally.

In some women, menstruation may occur on time, without breaking the previous deadlines. On average, ovulation and new bleeding begins in 35-40 days. For some women, menstruation begins after 50-60 days.

Full recovery cycle depends on previous pregnancies.:

  • women who have given birth have a term of about 3 months,
  • for those who have not given birth - up to six months.

If the bleeding after a vacuum abortion is abundant, scarlet-colored or with clots, you should consult a doctor.

Sex life and pregnancy

Sex life after a vacuum abortion resume after 3 weeks. Ideally, you should abstain from sex after a mini abortion for 1.5 months. Some women have sex since the third or fourth day after the procedure, without thinking about the danger of complications.

In the post-vacuum abortion period, the woman’s body is maximally weakened, the uterus is in a half-open state and access to any infection is guaranteed. Sex is an additional burden for the body, and it can react to it with a number of complications.

The ban on a new pregnancy after a vacuum interrupt for at least three months. В идеале планировать беременность стоит не ранее чем через полгода после операции.

By this time, the woman's body is fully restored, and she is ready to make a healthy baby and keep her own health. In earlier periods, a new pregnancy may end in miscarriage or bleeding, since the uterus mucosa has not recovered, and problems may occur with the attachment of the ovum to it.
