What is an abortion or "termination of pregnancy"?

An abortion is the deliberate medical process of ending a pregnancy. An abortion is also known as a 'termination' or 'termination of pregnancy'. At MSI Reproductive Choices UK we offer two types of abortion care: medical abortion (abortion pills) and surgical abortion.

Are abortions safe?

 

Abortion is very safe, when performed in a Department of Health and Care Quality Commission registered clinic, with specialists performing approved treatment, like at MSI Reproductive Choices.

If you’d like to talk through your options, call us on 0345 300 8090 for a confidential chat.

 

Which abortion is right for me?

The type of procedure you can be offered will depend on a few personal factors. Your gestation (how many weeks pregnant you are), past medical history, gynaecological history, medications and personal choice will all help determine which method is best for you.

Watch this video of Dr Yvonne Neubauer, MSI Reproductive Choices UK's Associate Clinical Director, explaining the difference between Medical and Surgical abortion.
