Medical abortion/termination

Medical abortion/termination is a safe and effective method of terminating a pregnancy up to 9 weeks (63 days) gestation using medication rather than surgery. Medical abortion, also known as non-surgical abortion.

Medical abortion/termination is a two-stage process. The first stage involves taking a tablet which blocks the hormone necessary for the pregnancy to continue. This is followed 36-48 hours later by a second medication which causes the contents of the uterus to be expelled.

Overall, medical abortion/termination is a low risk non-surgical option for early termination with a high success rate, up to 98%.
