Important info you should know before you book!

You must be under 9 weeks pregnant at the time of your medical abortion

(ie, under 63 days)

If you live in South Australia, unfortunately we are unable to assist you at this time, as teleabortion is still illegal in your state.

You must be within 2hrs of a hospital. Although complications are rare, we do need to be prepared.

If you live in Western Australia, you will require a referral from your GP. Contact us and we'll give you the details you need.

It is important that you tell someone you trust about what you are doing - just in case you need assistance.

If you live outside of Australia, you are under 16 yrs of age or you dont read English fluently, then you need to see a local provider face to face.

A medical termination may not be possible or might not be a good option for you if:

 

  • you are pregnant and might wish to continue with your pregnancy

  • your pregnancy is assessed as being of more than 63 days duration

  • you have a known or suspected ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy outside of the womb)

  • you have known or suspected bleeding disorder 

  • you are taking blood thinning medications (anticoagulants)

  • you are regularly taking steroid treatment (eg. for arthritis or asthma or any other illness that requires steroid medicines).

  • your adrenal glands do not work very well

  • you have a known allergy to prostaglandins medication.

  • you have an intrauterine contraceptive (IUD) still in the womb

  • you have an infection in the womb or fallopian tubes
