Purpose - To assess efficacy of manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) and electric vacuum aspiration (EVA) for termination of first trimester of pregnancy Method – Termination of pregnancy was carried out up to 10 weeks using MVA in 48 and EVA in 50 women. Post-procedure trans-vaginal sonography and laparoscopy was done in all.Results - MVA was associated with significantly less mean time taken for the procedure (13.274.84 vs. 17.205.63 minutes in EVA; p=0.000), blood loss (12.186.24 vs. 19.264.74 ml in EVA; p=0.000) and the pain perception about the procedure (24.478.82 vs. 33.604.95 % in EVA; p=0.000). Rate of incomplete evacuation was lesser in MVA (2.1 vs. 4% in EVA). The procedure related blood loss increased as the period of gestation increased.Conclusion - MVA is as safe and effective as EVA and may even be less painful than EVA.
