With 207,384 carried out in England and Wales in 2019, abortions are a vital part of the healthcare system. In March, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government temporarily relaxed the law (the Coronavirus Act) to allow women to take medical abortion pills at home for a period of two years. This change in the law enables us to support women by providing to women living anywhere in the UK (except Scotland).
An abortion is a very time-sensitive procedure and during this unusual time, we feel it’s more important than ever before to ensure women still have access to a safe pregnancy termination service in a timely manner.
“Whilst many women opt to have a pregnancy termination have on the NHS, a private medical abortion means no waiting times and allows you the flexibility of choosing a clinic and consultant that you feel comfortable with.” explains Dr Albert Aka, Consultant Gynecologist at The Gynae Centre.
“Pills by post also allow women to go through the termination on their own terms, in the comfort, and privacy of their own home. As no time is spent at the clinic, it limits time spent face-to-face with others in order to limit any unnecessary risk of infection.”
How Is Medical Abortion By Post Different To Medical Abortion?
It is the same process – you’ll be required to take two pills, mifepristone and misoprostol. You will still be required to have a thorough consultation with your consultant, but instead of in-person at the clinic, this will be over the phone or video call. In most cases, an ultrasound scan is not required, but if it is, this can be arranged. We have taken many measures to ensure the clinic remains COVID-19 free space. You can find out more about the changes we have made here to keep both you, other patients, and our staff safe.
An at-home abortion is £450 and this is inclusive of:
- Video or telephone consultation with an experienced, specialist consultant
- Medication sent to you by post
- Special pregnancy test
You still can expect the same, high level of aftercare you would receive if you visited us in the clinic; our team will be available to provide additional advice, support, and help you read the special sensitive pregnancy test if required. And, in the unlikely event to of any issues or complications, we are just a phone call away.
Who Is A Remote Abortion Suitable For?
A remote abortion is suitable for women up to 10 weeks pregnant. Medical abortion using pill is one of the safest methods of abortion as the earlier it is carried out, the safer it is.
