About the event

Seminars in Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Medical Termination of Pregnancy is an alternative to aspiration abortion (also known as aspiration curettage, suction curettage, dilation and curettage, dilation and evacuation, or surgical abortion). Use of a combination of mifepristone (an antiprogesterone) and misoprostol (a prostaglandin) is the primary method of medication abortion in the 1st few weeks of gestation. Increased utilisation of medication abortion as compared with aspiration abortion is associated with improved access to termination of pregnancy services and a decline in abortion complications.

This webinar will discuss the assessment, counselling and support, integration with Sexual and Reproductive Health services and termination of pregnancy options available in the 1st trimester. An approach to first-trimester medication abortion will be reviewed and a discussion on how to choose between a medication and surgical abortion.

Presenter: Dr Langanani Mbodi, Specialist Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, Gynaecologic Oncologist
