Welcome to Gynaecology Centres Australia
Gynaecology Centres Australia (GCA) is a provider of first trimester pregnancy termination services. Since 1998 GCA has offered safe, legal and non-judgemental pregnancy terminations. Our policy is to provide comprehensive, concise and unbiased information, with each patient being individually assessed and counselled prior to her procedure. We aim to deliver a medical service synonymous to a person seeking medical treatment for any other condition. See Surgical Termination for more information.
We also offer the option of a "medical abortion" as an alternate way to terminate early in pregnancy (up to 9 weeks only from the first day of the last menstrual period). So at GCA a woman can choose between a "medical abortion" and the more conventional "surgical abortion" methods, provided she fits the medical critera for a medical termination. See Medical Terminations for more information.
At GCA we provide treatment for women who may have an incomplete miscarriage, blighted ovum or foetal demise. This allows a woman to have her procedure performed quickly in a supportive environment and without the need for lengthy admission to hospital. Miscarriage Information
GCA also offers reliable and effective contraception advice and at some of our centres we also provide general women's health care, including breast examinations, Pap smears, sexual health, menopause management, weight management, bowel screening, osteoporosis screening, fertility management and postnatal checks. See Femscreen for more information.

Vasectomy available now at Newcastle, Wollongong and Hurstville. We are very happy to have acquired the services of three very experienced and skilled vasectomy surgeons at these centres. Vasectomy is a permanent contraception for men with a very high success rate. It is a simple 30 minute procedure that may be performed under local anaesthesia whilst you are awake, or you may benefit from being asleep, with our anaesthetist administering intravenous sedation during your procedure.
Medical Abortion is available at Gynaecology Centres Australia
Medical abortion has been widely available in many countries including the USA, UK, NZ, India and China. Australian women now have the choice of how they would like to terminate a pregnancy. Of course, eligibility for this method of termination will be assessed by the medical practitioner, as not all women may have the choice, depending on medical history or weeks of gestation.
Medical abortion may only be chosen if the pregnancy is less than 9 weeks from the first day of the last menstrual period. There are a few medical problems which may exclude women from making this choice and these may be discussed with the consulting doctor.
For more information click on Medical Terminations. It is advisable to read this information carefully before making your choice.
