Pregnancy Options

In Victoria there are two different types of abortion: medication and surgical. Some of the doctors at Sage Medical can offer medical termination of pregnancy. 

Medication termination (also known as medical abortion) is a safe, non-surgical method that is used for the termination of early pregnancy. 

In Australia, you can have a medical abortion up to 9 weeks (63 days) of pregnancy. It is a two-stage process with a high success rate, up to 98%. The first stage involves taking a tablet (mifepristone) which blocks the hormone that is needed for the pregnancy to continue. This is followed 36-48 hours later by a second medication (misoprostol) which causes the contents of the uterus to be expelled from your body. 

Medical abortion can be done in the privacy of your own home.  Your doctor can arrange pain medication and a medical certificate for your work. To make an appointment for termination counselling, please call our friendly reception team on 03 8606 3206.

If you have already attended another doctor for initial blood tests or scans, please bring these to your first appointment at Sage Medical. Failure to do so may delay your access to treatment.
