At MSI UK, we specialise in treatment, advice & support for people considering abortion
An abortion is the medical process of ending a pregnancy. There are two types of abortion: medical abortion and surgical abortion. Abortion is a common medical procedure: nearly one in three pregnancies ends in an abortion worldwide.
It is important to make the right decision for you, and part of this is having all the information you need.
If you decide an abortion is the right decision for you, we can help you. We offer medical and surgical abortions at our clinics across England. You can also call our advice line if you want to talk through your options with someone.

Types of abortion: medical and surgical
At MSI UK, we offer two types of abortion: medical abortion and surgical abortion.
Medical abortion (or the abortion pill, as it’s sometimes called) involves taking two types of medication at different times to end a pregnancy. It is available up to 9 weeks and 6 days of pregnancy.
Surgical abortion is a safe and simple procedure carried out by specialist doctors in a clinic, and involves the pregnancy being removed through the vagina using a suction method. It is available up to 23 weeks and 6 days of pregnancy.
Abortion Care Quality Standards
At MSI Reproductive Choices UK we welcome and endorse the Quality Standard on abortion care by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). This quality standard covers care for people of any age (including people under 18) who request an abortion, and it has been endorsed by NHS England and Department of Health and Social Care.
