Abortion - also known as termination of pregnancy - is when a pregnancy is ended so it does not result in the birth of a child.
Every woman has the right to make her own choice about whether to terminate or continue with a pregnancy. If a woman feels that an abortion is in her or her family's best interests, then she should have access to safe, supportive and non-judgmental advice and help.
Types of abortion
At Marie Stopes Centres, we offer two kinds of abortions: surgical and medical.
Medical abortion involves taking two sets of tablets to end a pregnancy. It's available before 8 weeks of pregnancy.
Surgical abortion involves a local or general anaesthetic, and a minor operation to remove the pregnancy tissue.

Your gestation (how many weeks pregnant you are), past medical history, gynaecological history, medications and personal choice will determine which method is best for you.
