Confidential and affordable medical abortion services are now available at SHQ. Our staff are non-judgemental, and are here to support you and your individual decision.

Medical abortion is a safe and effective method of terminating a pregnancy up to 9 weeks (63 days) gestation using medication (instead of surgery).

Medical abortion is a two-stage process. The first stage involves taking a tablet which blocks the hormone necessary for the pregnancy to continue. This is followed 24-48 hours later by a second medication, which causes the contents of the uterus to be expelled.

Medical abortion is a low-risk option for early termination of pregnancy, with a high success rate.

Please phone our friendly staff to discuss medical abortion further, or to make an appointment. Medicare rebates apply. You will be provided with more information about the process, as well as after care, by the clinician at your appointment.

If you are considering a termination of pregnancy, there is limited time in which to make this decision. Please get in touch as soon as you can.
