Terminations

There are few topics that have generated more commentary and discussion worldwide than the very personal issue of pregnancy termination.

On average every woman alive, during her fertile years, will have one induced abortion. In Australia alone, approximately 80,000 abortions are performed each year.

As a result, access to safe, legal abortion is essential to women’s health and well-being and is an impressively safe procedure.

All terminations are performed in our state-of-the-art clinic by a specialist team.

You will be taken through a personal session with a specially trained counsellor, before talking directly with the doctor performing the procedure.

These two steps give you the opportunity to talk through any questions you might have, as well as explaining the procedures available and making a choice that best suits your individual needs.

There are two options available for termination:

  • The most common method worldwide is surgical, which can be performed anywhere up to 20 weeks from the first day of your last period.
  • The second option is medical termination, which is available up to 7 weeks from the first day of your last period.

For more information regarding each type, or for comparison, follow the links below.

Pregnancy Calculator

Do you know how far along you are? While it’s not an exact measure, this pregnancy calculator can give you a rough idea of how many weeks pregnant you are.

This calculator estimates dates based on a 28-day menstrual cycle and may not be accurate for women who have a different length cycle. You will be able to determine a more exact estimate in our clinic.

Cost

Costs for termination vary depending on the procedure and duration of pregnancy.

The fees for the services provided may be paid through a method of your choosing: Cash, Eftpos, Visa or Mastercard.

If you are not an Australian citizen or permanent resident with a Medicare card, it is possible that you are supported by a different medical insurer. If your fund covers you for termination of pregnancy, we will issue you a receipt which can be used to lodge a claim.

If you would like any more information regarding costs, please contact us at 02 9221-1933
