Thank you. It is in relation to my Wife who has been denied an abortion today due to Low blood pressure
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
She is towards the end of her first trimester
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
her doctor in New Zealand says it’s too risky to perform any abortion. Is there no other options for us?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Her blood pressure is slowly improving but not enough apparently
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
She is also concerned about losing too much blood in any abortion and possibly dying.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I live in the Chicago area - is there any alternative treatments to end this pregnancy ?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
She accidentally fell pregnant to another man while in New Zealand. Hence we need to do this to save our marriage
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
But two of her Doctors in New Zealand have both said the blood pressure is too Low. And although they expect it to improve by the second trimester this will be too late to perform any abortion
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 2 months ago

As such at the end of 1st trimester Medical abortion can't be done.Medical abortion can only be done around 6-7 weeks.

The only option is to improve blood pressure and perform surgical abortion.

She may take plenty of salt rich fluids.

Oral rehydration fluids can be helpful to improve the blood pressure.

I/V saline may be helpful in such cases to improve blood pressure.

Thank you. So there is little option for her. If she can’t get her blood pressure up then she can’t proceed with an abortion. Could she admit herself into a hospital to get treatment for blood pressure?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 2 months ago

I suppose she can get her hemoglobin checked and admit her to a private nursing home.

Intravenous Normal saline can improve her Blood Pressure within 1-2 days.

5e abortion should be safe?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
the surgerical abortion should be safe after that?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 2 months ago

If her Blood pressure is stable after I.V fluids her doctors can safely perform surgical abortion.

Check her Complete Blood Counts as well.
