What is a Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTOP)?

What is a Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTOP)?, A medical termination is one where the woman takes two different drugs (mifepristone and misoprostol) that will end a pregnancy of up to nine weeks, similar to a miscarriage. These drugs have been used widely and safely on millions of women throughout the world, including France and China, the UK, Sweden, the USA, and New Zealand. Mifepristone has been approved for use by specialists in Australia since 2009.

It is a blessing and a wonderful thing to happen to any woman. This is unfortunately only true if you are in the right relationship, financially and emotionally able, and at the right stage of your life. But to be confronted with an unplanned, unwanted pregnancy is always a traumatic experience, and for this to happen while you are still a teenager can be devastating. So what is teenage pregnancy, and what are the options you have to manage this event?

The answer to this question is very difficult, and there is unfortunately no right or wrong answer. You have to make an important decision that has lifelong implications. So what must you consider?

Terminate the pregnancy

Teenagers often feel that the pregnancy or the baby is not something that they want at this stage of their lives, and they want to terminate it as soon as possible. They are unfamiliar and uninformed about termination services, are desperate, and often end up having an illegal abortion that can be dangerous and even life-threatening. A legal abortion performed in a legal clinic by qualified medical personnel is a low-risk, safe procedure.

How Do mifepristone pills Work?

Mifepristone is an anti-progesterone drug. Progesterone is a hormone that is necessary to maintain the early stages of pregnancy. Without progesterone, the lining of the uterus breaks down, the opening of the uterus softens and bleeding begins.
However, the uterus needs to contract and expel the pregnancy tissue, hence the need for misoprostol.  The earlier the pregnancy, the more successful the drugs will be.

It is essential to ensure that you are no longer pregnant.
