Medical Abortion

Medical abortion or abortion using the pill is a safe and effective procedure that can be used to end an early term pregnancy either at the clinic or in your own privacy at home under the supervision of a doctor.

Choices Abortion Clinic Johannesburg offers this type of abortion procedure to women in their first trimester and is achieved by using  two abortion pills respectively. The combination of these two abortion pills are very effective and will end a pregnancy same day without any complications. 

After having a private consultation with the doctor, you will be given,  This pill works by blocking the action of progesterone to cause the pregnancy to stop progressing.

A few hours later you will swallow one which will cause the cervix to soften and the uterus to contract hence allowing the pregnancy to be expelled from the uterus.

What to Expect..

Before the pregnancy is expelled, you will experience

  • Cramping
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting


Surgical Abortion

Surgical abortions are also referred to as in-clinic abortions procedures because they are performed under anaesthetic or by using suction (vacuum) aspiration and must be done within the clinic using some medical equipment unlike the medical abortion which can be performed at home.

Before a surgical abortion is performed, hormone-blocking tablets may be used to help soften your cervix and they take about two hours to take effect. The abortion is then performed using suction and instruments to remove the pregnancy.
