The voluntary termination of pregnancy (VTP) is a simple procedure that can be carried out safely and privately in the comfort of your home. However, it is convenient to adopt practices that increase your safety, thereby mantaining the calm and peace of mind throughout the entire abortion procedure.
Among these practices, we highlight the location where the abortion will take place.
Choosing the right location for this purpose (whether we’re talking about your place or someone else’s) involves some factors that you need to take into account, just like:
- Being near to a hospital or or another healthcare center;
- Having easy access to means of transportation;
- Being close to people in case you need help.
Have your abortion in a easily accessible place, preferably near hospitals and means of transportation.
The place you choose to perform your abortion should not be more than an hour away form a healthcare center or hospital. Likewise, it is important (especially in rural areas) have close to you the phone number of taxis/ambulances. Make sure you have easy access to different means of transportation.
Lastly, be always accompanied or try not to be in an isolated locality, because if you experience any complication, or if you get to feel sick, someone else may help you.
This way, your abortion will happen smoothly.
