Our abortion services
At MSI UK, we offer both medical and surgical abortion care.
A medical abortion (also known as the abortion pill) involves taking two types of medication (mifepristone and misoprostol) at two different times, to end a pregnancy. At MSI UK, a medical abortion is available up to 9 weeks and 6 days of pregnancy. We offer both face-to-face medical abortion care, and at-home abortion pills (also known as telemedicine).
Our at-home abortion pills service means that if you meet the safety criteria to allow for medical abortion without a scan, the abortion medication can either be collected by you from one of our clinics or posted to your home address after your phone or face-to-face consultation.
A surgical abortion is a safe and simple procedure used to end a pregnancy, and involves the pregnancy being removed vaginally by an experienced doctor either by using suction (vacuum aspiration) or specialised instruments (dilation and evacuation). At MSI UK, a surgical abortion is available up to 23 weeks and 6 days of pregnancy.

Abortion stories from Bristol
We believe that sharing stories is at the heart of ending the stigma that too many people still feel when it comes to abortion care. Our clients share their stories with you, so you can know what to expect, know you are not alone, and feel reassured – whatever your decision may be.
“As soon as I called MSI, I was completely supported. They did not try to change my mind or shame me for my reasons for having an abortion.
When I attended the Bristol clinic, every nurse was amazing and made me feel like it wasn’t something to be ashamed of or something to worry about. Throughout the whole process the nurses were amazing and told me exactly what was happening. The whole team at MSI made this experience so much easier.”
