Different Abortion Methods
If you’re considering going for an abortion, speak to our experts about the safest methods available to you.
Only abortion pills are used during a medical abortion. To end the pregnancy, a patient would take two distinct medicines at the clinic or hospital. The first tablet (1 Mifepristone pill) will be taken at the clinic or hospital, and the other tablets (4 Misoprostol pills) 1 to 2 days later at home.
Within 4 to 6 hours of taking the second tablet, you will experience pain and bleeding. This may be followed by a loss of the pregnancy. Some women may experience symptoms similar to a miscarriage.
This option is available to pregnant women who are between 4 and 9 weeks pregnant. It is given by a registered nurse or Midwife. For pregnant women between 10 and 13 weeks, it will be given by a medical doctor.
Surgical terminations are done by registered nurses (up to 12 weeks of pregnancy) or medical doctors (after 12 weeks) in a clinic or hospital on the same day.
After the mouth of the womb has been softened with tablets, the operation will be completed. The woman will be able to leave once her vital signs have returned to normal after a few hours.
She will get pain medication to help her deal with any contradictions, she will have access to any information that can help her identify any danger signs, and she might be given a preferred contraceptive method because fertility can return in about 8 days after the procedure.
Safe & Legal Abortions
Marie Stopes offers a conveniently located centre in Cape Town for women who are considering terminating their pregnancies. In South Africa, you have the right to a legal abortion up to 20 weeks into a pregnancy.
The Marie Stopes centre in Cape Town is staffed by compassionate and highly trained medical professionals, which means you get the same level of care as you would at a private doctor or hospital.
We don’t question your choices or try to change your mind; we’re simply here to provide safe, dependable care without passing criticism or judgement. That’s why so many women turn to us during this challenging time.
Never choose an illegal abortion provider
Usually, abortion services that you see advertised on flyers around your neighbourhood are illegal services. They’re provided by people who are not qualified doctors, and/or aren’t legally authorised to provide terminations. Using their services could result in serious illness, permanent damage to your reproductive system or, in extreme cases, even death.
Remember: abortion is legal in South Africa, so there is no reason to ever visit an illegal service provider. If you have passed the 20-week mark, there are other options available to you, which we’ll talk you through and help you to understand.
