Frequently asked questions

Surgical abortion

All medical procedures carry some degree of risk, but abortion falls into the category of minor surgery and therefore has a very low complication rate.

We use conscious sedation during abortion. This is a combination of two drugs. The first helps to relax, the second is a painkiller. Together, these drugs help treat the level of discomfort the woman may feel. Pain is generally mild, but varies from person to person.

We recommend that you rest on the day of the operation. Some women decide to take longer.

You will not be able to drive for 24 hours after the operation.

We recommend not inserting anything into the vagina for 7 days after the procedure.
