What are the Signs of pregnancy

What are the Signs of pregnancy, Due to a drop in hormonal levels pregnancy symptoms start to disappear 2 -3 days after your termination, e.g. morning sickness (within 48 hours), tiredness and moodiness, breast tenderness and breast enlargement. Breast tenderness will be the last to go and can take more than a week. Secretions from your breast can be normal. Do not press on your breast and apply cold cabbage leaves on the breasts to relieve swelling and discomfort if needed. Take Brufen for the swelling and limit fluid intake. If it persists for longer than a week after the termination, please contact the clinic. It can also take some time (sometimes 2 -3 months) for your periods to return to a normal cycle.


We prefer to give your body a short rest after your treatment. You should start with your contraceptive method directly after your check-up visit. Please discuss this with the clinic staff. Contraceptives will also regulate your menstrual cycle. Remember that you can fall pregnant easily again soon after your termination!

Post Termination Counselling:

If you or your partner experience difficulty coming to terms with your pregnancy and decision to terminate, you can discuss your feelings with us. We also offer a counselling service or will refer you to someone in your area. Feel free to contact us at any time to make an appointment for counselling, a referral or just a friendly chat.

How effective and safe is a medical abortion?

Medical abortion is effective in 95% of cases. When the abortion is not complete, the surgical procedure is performed at the follow-up appointment free of charge.

Having a medical or surgical abortion will not affect a woman’s chance of having a baby in the future.

How does medical abortion work?

Two sets of medication are administered to terminate the pregnancy

The first medication is given orally to the women at the clinic and will weaken the attachment of the pregnancy to the womb.  The second set of medication causes the womb to contract and bleed. This expels the pregnancy.

Dangers of illegal abortions

The tablets might not work. A % of the population does not have receptors for the medication to absorb.

Incomplete abortions – it can happen that not all the products come out and that can lead to excessive bleeding and infection.

  • Patients can bleed themselves to death.
  • They can develop an infection in the retained products that can also cause death or sterility in the future.

An abortion is always a traumatic experience. Make sure your abortion is safe and allows you the best chance to be healthy after the procedure and have normal pregnancies in the future.

We offer a comprehensive TOP service. We aim to create an emotionally caring, private and confidential environment as this can be an emotionally traumatic experience. Counselling forms an integral part of our service – the counselling is informative, non-directive and according to the needs of the client.
