I am 18yrs old female and i am pregnant. If i visit a gynecologist will they inform my parents before an abortion? I know that if i am 18 only my consent is required but this being India i am a bit worried. Will my information kept private as i am an adult?

See its not matter of consent only as it's also important to take your responsibility for this things, not necessarily your parents but a responsible person and don't take things in your hand take advice from the gynac.. Take wise decision in life always...
