Things You Need to Know About Abortion

Contrary to popular belief, abortion is a very common procedure in women of all ages up to menopause. Statistically, one-third of women in Australia will have an abortion in their lifetime.

When abortion is performed by a trained and expert doctor who is an expert in this procedure, abortions that are performed in the first trimester are safe, straightforward, and quick to perform. Globally, abortion is ten times safer for a woman than natural childbirth.

Surgical Abortion

Women in Australia most commonly have a surgical abortion. This is available at Gynaecology Centres Australia for up to 14 weeks after the first day of a woman’s last menstrual period.

Surgical Abortion is carried out under a light intravenous anaesthetic (“twilight sedation”) and is a day-only procedure in our clinic, You do not need to go to hospital. This method of terminating a pregnancy has a very low complication rate and is the most successful way of terminating a pregnancy.

Medical Abortion

Medical abortion may be performed up to 9 weeks (or 63 days) after the first day of the last menstrual period. It is less common in Australia than a surgical abortion, but it may be a better option for some women. A medical abortion requires taking medication to end the pregnancy. The abortion process then occurs over the next two to three days. Variable pain and bleeding is expected. It is less successful than a surgical abortion but in some women, may be the preferred option.

At Gynaecology Centres Australia, our doctors will consult with you to discuss your options and advise the best approach to terminating your pregnancy based on how advanced it is, your general health, and other considerations.
