Abortion Procedure (safe and caring)
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 (INFORMED AND CONFIDENTIAL)
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 TO MAKE YOU COMFORTABLE
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
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 (THE ABORTION PILL)
A medical abortion is an abortion by medication rather than surgery. We offer medical abortion using Mifegymiso, also called the Abortion Pill. In Ontario the cost of Mifegymiso is now covered under OHIP.
