Finally I found it !

FPAI –Family Planning Association of India. Ladies!!! Have you heard about it? If yes, then I am happy for you, if no then get ready to receive an amazing information that I am going to give you. For those who are not aware of FPAI, It stands for Family Planning Association for India. They provide services on family planning and unwanted pregnancies. They have clinics around India. Few of the cities are Delhi, Agra, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai. Recently, I got a chance to visit the FPAI clinic in Delhi and I was amazed to see how approachable they were.

Abortion is legal under certain conditions.

First of all, let me start by saying abortion is legal in India until certain weeks. To more know about this, please check our article here.

The clinic we recommend is situated at RK Puram Sector- 4, New Delhi -110022, Opposite Capital Court, Munirka, Near HDFC Bank and Methodist Church. It is easy to locate the clinic. As I went inside the gate the surrounding of the clinic had positive vibes. The plants and trees added to the calmness. I dint feel as if I am standing in front of an abortion clinic. I went and met the Doctor who was all excited to meet us and show around the clinic. As we entered I saw the counsellor’s room. The counsellor had a huge smile on her face. I felt safe and welcomed.  We went and sat with the doctor in the examination room where the patients were examined.

“Privacy and confidentiality is the most important aspect that FPAI follows”, told the doctor.  Whoever comes to the clinic needs to just register with one’s name. This is required, to keep a count of the patients. It is not for public to examine.

Married or Unmarried women can receive abortion services.

Let it be a married women or unmarried women, the information of the patient is kept highly confidential. Nobody asks the patient uncomfortable questions like are you married or not? Where is the husband? Everybody is treated with dignity at FPAI.

As soon as one walks inside the clinic, the person is sent to the counsellor’s room. The counsellor makes sure that the person is comfortable. Privacy is given utmost important. The counsellor discusses what all happened and what can be done. Later the person is sent to the examination room and is examined by the doctor who later provides medicines or performs the operation accordingly.

For abortion or also known as Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP), the woman needs to fill a consent form called ‘Form C’.  Only the consent of the women is required for performing the medical termination.

For the first 4-8 weeks, doctors are willing to provide the medicines or the pills to induce abortion.

Procedures regarding Medical Abortion :

The woman is provided with a medicine kit containing mifepristone and misoprostol.  These medicines are best helpful in first 12 weeks (1st Trimester of abortion).

The doctor properly explains how to utilise these medicines as it is important to take these medicines in a proper way and under the doctor’s guidance

Procedure:

  • Day 1:One 200 mg tablet of Mifepristone is taken
  • Day 3 (between 24 to 48 hours):Misoprostol pills of 200 mcg each (total of 800 mcg) are given orally or vaginally.
  • Day 14 – 15:Person returns for a post-treatment examination to affirm that a complete end of pregnancy has happened.

The doctor would recommend to come back for an ultrasound check up after 15 days. As per the doctor if it is difficult to come back to clinic, then get an ultrasound (abdomen) done because it is important to find out if the abortion is completed and women is safe.

The doctor told me these medicines don’t have any side effects but should be always taken under the doctor’s guidance.  It is always better to see if the clinic has displayed the certificate for medical termination practice. One needs to be careful from quacks or unregistered doctors.

After 12 weeks, Doctors normally recommend Surgical abortion.

Surgical Abortion :

 

MVA (Medical Vacuum Aspiration) method  is used for surgical termination. It involves using a specially designed syringe to apply gentle suction to remove the pregnancy or pregnancy tissue from the womb. It can be done with or without local anaesthetic (you will be awake), and takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete. This method is legal, less expensive and more comfortable than Dilation and curettage (which is an old method). It is also safe.

After five weeks,  a surgical procedure is your only option. If you opt for a surgical abortion, you will need to give your doctor a couple of days to make arrangements at the hospital/ clinic. The actual procedure takes only about 15-20 minutes, but you will have to stay in the hospital for four to five hours.

Is Abortion scary? I am nervous?

These are some of the questions that we have been getting in the past.

Is it safe?

Will my Girl friend treated well?

Does it hurt? 

I am unmarried. Will they provide me service?

 

Let me tell you ladies, I found FPAI very friendly and approachable. If required, kindly try utilizing this clinic. It’s friendly, non-judgemental, safe, clean and affordable. The whole facility would cost around 500 INR. Kindly utilize this amazing clinic. Try it out and refer it to the ladies around. Let us all promote safe abortion and health care around us.

We also wanted to share a story of one of our followers who felt lonely and betrayed while trying to terminate her pregnancy : http://www.hidden-pockets.com/abortion-stories-in-india/

You are not alone, we are here!

PS: “FPA India clinics may charge, what we prefer to call as a ‘partial user fee’ to the clients for seeking abortion or any other SRH service. This fee is very subsidized and helps the Association meet some running costs.  Only when the facility is not equipped to provide a particular service (for example some client may need a specialized service, or admission or higher level emergency care) are clients to other facilities.”
