Requirements for a Medical Abortion - Preparing for your Appointment

Medical terminations can be performed at our facility between 5 weeks and 9 weeks gestation.

Medication

If you are on any medication or have had a recent bad cold or flu, or have diabetes, high blood pressure, epilepsy, or any other medical condition, please inform the staff when making your booking. You may require a specially scheduled appointment and the doctor may need to give you specific instructions.

If you suffer from asthma or diabetes, please bring your medication with you.

Note: If you suffer from any bleeding disorders, you will not be able to have the medical termination.

What to Bring

Health Care Card/Pension Card
Payment

Legal Identification (i.e Drivers Licence, passport, birth certificate)
Any blood test results, ultrasounds, referrals from your doctor, donor cards (these are not necessary for booking an appointment)
Any medication you are taking
Bring something to keep you occupied. We have magazines readily available

Note: Medicare Cards do not count as a form of ID.

What NOT to Bring

Do NOT bring more than one person to accompany you to the clinic.
Do NOT bring anyone under the age of 12 into the facility (infants and children)

Blood Group

If you have evidence of your blood group, either on a donor card or pathology test, please bring this along to your surgery. To perform a termination, we must know whether you have a positive or negative blood group. If you do not have evidence of your blood group, we will perform a small finger prick test on the day. If you have a negative blood type, you will be provided with an Anti-D injection following your first dose of medication.

With the medical abortion you can eat, drink, and smoke as per normal.
