Abortions

Birth control is of course the best method, however if you find yourself in the situation of an unwanted pregnancy, there is an option of abortion.  These days in Japan, out of the number who get pregnant, about 1 in 4 choose abortion.  If it is the first period of your pregnancy, you can get a treatment done in one day, also it will be done in a healthy women’s body, we have many considerations for your peace of mind and your experience.  Due to this, abortion surgery is only permitted to be done by designated doctors among the maternal protection act.  In addition, it is a private matter, and confidentiality is very important.  At our clinic, we are committed above all to confidentiality and safety.

 

Procedure

About Abortions

The cost and the method of the treatment will vary depending on the size of the fetus, so it is recommended to get a visit in at an early time.  To be able to do a safe surgery, we shall use the following procedure.

 

Consultation → Explanation → Reservation → Pretreatment → Abortion surgery

 


 

Beginning Period (less than 12 week) Abortion

At our in principle, the abortion surgery of the initial term fetus that is less than 12 weeks old is performed by the suction method where the contents of the uterus are removed mechanically.  The abortion itself will take about 15 minutes.  Due to the intravenous anesthesia you will be unconscious, and the surgery will finish while you are sleeping.  We are using the type of anesthesia that can be used even by people with asthma.

 

Mid-term (from 12 weeks to 21 weeks and 6 days) Abortion

When the uterus increases in size at 12 weeks gestation, if surgery is forced, then there will be a high potential for life-threatening accidents such as arterial injury of the cervical.  For this reason, just as the same as in a delivery, you must have an abortion.  Of course, it will be necessary for you to be hospitalized in a facility with equipment that can support maternal risks just the same as delivery.  At our clinic, after having spread the cervix (entrance to the uterus) using a balloon and Laminaria (or Lamicel) stick, the surgery is then done by using the contraction medicine PREGLADIN.
