Different Types of Abortion

There are some types of abortions that can be performed with minimal amounts of discomfort to the mother, while others require that the mother receive a local anesthetic before the abortion is performed. Abortions can be done as soon as the mother discovers she is pregnant right through until the fetus is full term. However, the longer a mother waits to have an abortion, the higher her risks for complications and infection.
There are different types of ways to end an unwanted pregnancy; some can be performed with the minimal amount of discomfort. Some other types of abortion require the mother to receive a local anesthetic whilst the abortion is performed. Abortions sometimes referred to doctors as termination of pregnancy, could be performed in the U.K up until 24 weeks, although some clinics and doctors may not consider this from 18-20 weeks. The Type of termination is usually determined by a doctor, his decision will be based on the term of the pregnancy. If the termination is carried out earlier in the term of the pregnancy, the less likely complications will arise.

The most common procedures for having an abortion:

An abortion pill, also known as a non-surgical abortion, this is for women in the very early stages of pregnancy up to about nine weeks old. The mother will be required to take two drugs 48 hours apart. Miferpristone stops the hormone progesterone, which is required to maintain the pregnancy. Because of this the uterine lining will begin to shed, the cervix then begins to soften and bleeding can occur. The second medication, misoprostol is taken, the uterus contracts and the pregnancy is usually expelled within six to eight hours. These have the effect of causing the womb to contract and shed the lining so that the embryo is lost through the vagina. This can be painful and some women feel sick or have vomiting and diarrhoea with these drugs. The positives to this method is it allows the woman some control when to take the second pill as long as it is in the time-frame allowing the woman to have a home abortion.

Manual vacuum aspiration, this is more commonly used after nine weeks of pregnancy. This procedure will be carried out in an operating theatre or a procedure room, an oral analgesic such as ibuprofen is taken. Before the procedure begins, local anesthetic will be injected into the cervix, the cervix will be gently stretched open with the use of dilators. The uterus is then emptied using an electric or manual vacuum. The procedure takes between 10-15 minutes. Recover time for this type of abortion is typically 30-45 minutes and no overnight stay is required.

Induced abortion, this method is usually used for women in later stages of pregnancy. This is where labour is induced with drugs; sometimes more than one drug is used to induce labour. The drugs can be administered vaginally, injected into the uterus, or given through an intravenous line. The most commonly used drug is Prostaglandins, it causes the uterus to contract. Some other agents can be used, but are less common such as saline, urea or oxytocin. Labour usually occurs within 12 hours, the side affects experienced can be nausea, vomiting, and sometimes diarrhoea.

Partial birth abortion, it a type of abortion performed in the later term of pregnancy usually 18 weeks upward. Remember the latest an abortion can be performed is 24 weeks, some doctors may refuse to carry out the procedure from 18 weeks. Partial birth abortion is sometimes referred to as intact dilate and extraction (D&X) Woman considering this method should be aware of the highly controversial nature of this procedure. The first step in this procedure involves administration of medication needed to make the cervix dilate; this may take a number of days. The physician will turn the fetus into a footing breach position. The fetus is drawn out feet first until just the head remains inside the uterus, and then an instrument is used to puncture the base of the skull which collapses the fetal head. The contents of the fetal head are partially suctioned out; this reduces the size of the head to allow it to pass through the cervix. The intact fetus is then removed from the woman’s body.

After the abortion woman experience different feelings, and will cope in different ways. Hormone levels can change resulting in mood swings; it is common for woman to feel a bit sensitive and irritable. Some woman may feel a sense of loss whether or not they believe their decision was right for them, other woman feel a sense of relief. Your doctor or clinic should offer the mother a choice of whether they want counseling.

Everything You Need to Know About Stages of Pregnancy

Knowing all the stages of pregnancy involved will not only benefit you considering that you are the one pregnant, but it will also benefit your baby because you will know somehow what is going on inside of you during the nine months of your pregnancy.

During the first month where your egg becomes fertilized, this is where your baby’s blueprint of genes is already formed. Right after fertilization, your egg will be transformed into a ball containing cells and then attaches itself to the womb’s wall. It will then grow into a size that is smaller than one grain of rice just before it eventually grows the heart and spinal cord.

When it reaches the second month, the baby will now be transformed into a more human figure where the head already becomes more prominent, the features of the face are already formed, as well as the feet and the hands that start to develop its muscles. By the time that the second month ends, an ultrasound must already be able to pick up a heartbeat from the stomach of the mother. In addition, around this time, the fetus will already be 2.5 centimeters long and it will be 10,000 times larger than it was during the time it was conceived.

The third month is when the fingers and toes already start to appear, along with the development of the sex organs. In addition, upon the closing of the third month all of the vital organs have already been formed that will officially make the baby a fetus. Around this time, the baby should already weigh about 14 grams and have a length of about 8 centimeters long.

The baby will continue to grow during the fourth month that the fingernails and toes already appear in the body; in addition, hairs already start to grow in the baby’s body. It is during the fourth month that your baby should have the ability to curl his/her toes and fingers along with the ability to suck the thumb.

The fifth month is when the eyelashes, eyebrows and hair begin to grow along with the development of the senses of the baby. This development is proven by the increase in length of your baby up to 13 centimeters. This is also the time where a white substance that is creamy becomes existent to be able to protect the skin of the baby.

When the baby reaches its sixth month, his/her development will normally slow down. This is also the time that he/she will be able to control more the movements along with the fact that the different systems in the body such as the immune and digestive systems and even the lungs will begin to develop to become more mature.

The seventh month is a vital month because all the major organs in the body except for the lungs are already working properly. The development of the brain happens in this stage and it is caused by the maturity of the cells. It is said that if a baby is born in this stage, he/she will already have a very good chance at surviving.

The eighth month is when the baby will already be able to close and open his/her eyes along with the fact that he/she will already be able to develop his/her taste buds. When the ninth month arrives, the baby should already have fully developed and is already growing healthily. This development will enable the babe to develop a thick layer of fat that will cause a gain in weight of up to 225g every week. During the ninth month is usually when the head of the baby will be attached to the pelvis of the mother that will prepare him/her for his/her birth. It is quite amusing to know that only less than 10% of all the babies come out of their mother on their exact due date, while 85% are those that are born on the first few days of the tenth month.

There are many reasons for people to want to get pregnant and have a child of their own. In many cultures it is preferred to have a baby of a specific gender, and even if this is considered unethical it happens. Unfortunately you can’t usually determine the sex of the child. Having said that, there are ways to get pregnant with a boy that can be used to increase your chances of conceiving a child of this gender. These are based on science, experience and on pure estimations made by people who have knowledge on the human anatomy and physiology.

To be the best way how to get pregnant with a boy, a specific method should produce results that are significant. In my opinion something like this would have to give you a baby boy in over 70% of the cases, and preferably it should be over 80%. There are people who have five or more children and all of them are boys – either they have been lucky, or they just have been executing some of the methods without knowing about it.

All the methods used to increase the chances of impregnating a woman with a boy are based on a few fact on the different types of sperm that the men have. Since the sperm determines the gender of the baby – there are sperm that have the sex determining chromosome X (results in a girl when it fertilizes an egg) and the chromosome Y (produces boys when fertilizes eggs) – it is important to figure out the differences between these two, so it can be possible to make the environment as optimal as possible for the desired sperm to make it first to the ovaries.

The most important difference is that they Y chromosome containing sperm is a lot faster, but at the same time it uses all of its energy a lot faster. It is also more vulnerable than the X-ones. To make it over-simplified this would mean that to be able to get pregnant with a boy, you should make the environment – the vagina – fast and secure. This means that you will have to engage in sexual intercourse during a time of the month, where the secretion of the vagina is consist of fluids that are not sticky, but instead slippery and clear. Also these fluids should be plenty and of the right pH. Since they boy-sperm is more vulnerable the woman should make her lifestyle choices in a manner that would enable her body pH to be as neutral as possible.

The best way to get pregnant with a boy would be combining all these to a sexual position that allows deep penetration – hence the sperm will have a shorter distance to travel, and the faster ones won’t get tired on the way.
