REY, Grazzia; CURI, Laura  y  RODRIGUEZ, Christians. Evaluación de la experiencia de la implantación de la ley de interrupción voluntaria del embarazo en el Hospital de Clínicas. Anfamed [online]. 2019, vol.6, n.2, pp.45-50.  Epub 01-Dic-2019. ISSN 2301-1254.  http://dx.doi.org/10.25184/anfamed2019v6n2a3.

Aims: To evaluate clinical data from the Sexual and Reproductive Health Clinic of the University Hospital six years after the implementation of the voluntary interruption of pregnancy law (VIP).

Methods: revision of clinical records from December 2012 to December 2018. Results: Out of 448 patients, 361 interrupted their pregnancies. 63 patients required a second dose of Misoprostol, 30 patients required additional medical interventions, 49 patients decided to continue their pregnancies and were provided assistance, and 32 did not return following their first interview.

Conclusions: Based on the research findings, the medical procedure of VIP is effective in all the cases, just 33 needs surgical additional process. The VIP law represents a considerable progress in the reproductive health of Uruguayan women. As a result, there is a higher rate of abortions in the country. VIP has ensured medical assistance, healthcare and respect for sexual and human reproductive rights, including opportunity, continuity, and humanization of pregnancy interruption. The existence of the law per se does not ensure that women will opt for abortion.
