Abortion – What you Need to Know

One-third of Australian women will have at least one abortion during their lifetime. When performed by a trained and expert doctor, abortions performed in the first trimester are safe, and you would expect to be in the clinic for approximately 3 hours for the procedure and recovery. Based on global statistics, abortion is ten times safer than natural childbirth.

The most common form of abortion in Australia is a surgical abortion. This is available up to 14 weeks from the first day of a woman’s last menstrual period. It is performed under a light intravenous anaesthetic (sedation) as a day-only procedure in our clinic – there is no need to go to the hospital or to a have general anaesthetic.The complication rate of a surgical abortion is very low, approximately 1 in 100 and most complications are minor.

Less commonly, women may elect (or be recommended) to have a medical abortion, which may be performed up to 9 weeks (63 days) from the first day of the last menstrual period. It involves the use of medication to end the pregnancy and occurs over two to three days.
