Abortion Procedure

The Clinic performs abortions from early pregnancy to late second trimester. We offer both surgical and medical abortions.  All abortion services are strictly confidential and no parental consent is required. No information will be shared with anyone without your written consent.

Counselling and Birth Control Options

We provide counselling prior to all abortion procedures and, if interested, will provide information about birth control options that suit your lifestyle. IUD insertions and prescriptions for hormonal contraceptives are available. We can insert the IUD at the time of the abortion or at your check-up.

Medication

You will be offered medication to help alleviate discomfort and anxiety, keeping you as comfortable as possible. We use intravenous sedation during the procedure and oral pain medication in the recovery room.

The Abortion Procedure

Surgical Abortion

A surgical abortion is short, simple and safe. The procedure itself takes about three to five minutes, after which you will able to rest and recover in our post-op area. Abortion is one of the safest and most common surgical procedures performed today.

Medical Abortion

A medical abortion is an abortion induced by medication rather than surgery. In Canada, two medications are used in medical abortions: methotrexate/misoprostol and Mifegymiso.  Both types of abortion medication are available at our clinic.
