What to expect on the day
When you arrive at one of our centres, you’ll have a consultation with one of our specialist doctors.
They’ll check how pregnant you are, if you don’t know the date of your last period. They’ll also discuss your medical history, talk about contraceptives, and go through the medical abortion process with you in detail.
If you’re less than nine weeks’ pregnant, you’ll take your first pill at this visit and your second at home. If you’re more than nine weeks’ pregnant, you’ll take all the medication in the centre and go home after the pregnancy has been expelled.
Most women experience some bleeding and cramping within one to four hours. Significant cramping usually only happens in the first 24 hours and we can give you some pain relief to help with this.
Our nurses will be there to answer any questions and to help you feel relaxed and comfortable before, during and after your treatment.
