How does an abortion work?

If – after the first consultation en the mandatory waiting period – you decide to terminate your pregnancy, you can choose between two methods of treatment: suction aspiration or medical abortion (the so-called abortion pill). If you are 9 weeks or more pregnant, suction aspiration is the only option.

There is no such thing as the ‘best’ method. Both methods have advantages, disadvantages and limitations. The choice is determined by the term of the pregnancy, your situation, medical background and personal preference.
