Surgical abortion under general anaesthesia

← Back to the other methods

There is no one method better than the other, but you should discuss with your doctor or midwife which one is possible and which will suit you best.
You can also get help in making a choice in an interview with a trained marriage and family counsellor.
It is possible up to 16 weeks of amenorrhoea (i.e. 16 weeks from the first day of your last period), 14 weeks of pregnancy.

The duration of the intervention is about 15 minutes. This method is based on dilating the cervix and evacuating the uterine contents by suction. Doctors recommend that you are accompanied when you leave the health facility.

My expectations and profile

I would like a quick surgery but I don’t want to be aware of the act.
I would like to be accompanied by health professionals.
