Make an abortion appointment, suited to your needs


How is my pregnancy calculated?

You can calculate a gestation estimate by counting the days from the first day of your last period. Because it is challenging to predict when a woman ovulates, this calculation method only estimates the maximum possible gestation. The confirmed gestation after an ultrasound may provide a different result.

Is the procedure confidential?

Your procedure details will not be known to anyone without your consent. We will only call or email you to confirm your booking and ensure you have the information you need to proceed safely with your medical procedure.

What about future contraception?

While you wait to see the nurse and doctor, you may wish to consider which long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) method might suit you best. My Best Fit is your contraception advisor and can help you determine what contraceptive solution will work best with your priorities and lifestyle. As part of your time with the nurse, you will also have the opportunity to discuss your contraception options. In addition, you may be able to have a LARC fitted on the day, which can significantly reduce the cost of having one fitted. Ask your customer service advisor when you call to make a booking.

Do I need a referral for an abortion in Sydney?

No referral is required.

What questions will I be asked?

We will ask medical questions to help determine your eligibility for your choice of termination of pregnancy procedure when you call to make your booking.

It is essential that you are at least six weeks since your last menstrual period or have a confirmed pregnancy on ultrasound. If pregnancy cannot be seen on ultrasound, you may need to reschedule your appointment.

You will be asked questions about your medical history to ensure that any risk factors are appropriately managed at your appointment. You will also be asked to consent to the procedure after explaining the process and risks involved.

How soon can I get pregnant after an abortion?

There is no lasting contraceptive protection from having an abortion, and you can ovulate as soon as two weeks after the procedure, even if you are still bleeding. Therefore, it is important that you discuss your contraception options at your consult and begin using a reliable contraception method right away.

When to start taking birth control after an abortion?

Depending on your preferred method, there are different guidelines about when you can start using each method of contraception.

Contraceptive pill, implant or injection: Surgical abortion starts on the day of the abortion or within five days after the abortion for injections. Medical abortion begins on the day the medication is taken or within five days for injections.

IUD / IUS: Surgical abortion can be inserted at the end of the surgical procedure or a follow-up appointment. Medical abortion during your post-medical abortion consults or when you receive confirmation, the termination of pregnancy was successful.

Vaginal ring: You may insert a vaginal ring the day after your procedure, as it is sterile. However, you must wash your hands thoroughly to avoid the risk of infection while you heal.

Condoms: When you can safely resume vaginal intercourse.

Cervical cap, diaphragm: When you can safely resume vaginal intercourse.

Fertility awareness: Use a backup method until you can be confident your cycle has returned to normal.
