The Abortion Procedure

Before an abortion surgery is attempted, the most important detail is to know the position and the size of the pregnancy. Most complications of abortion arise from failure to do this.

The problem with dating the pregnancy is that many patients do not know how to date their pregnancies or date them based on the wrong dates. Many mothers date their pregnancies from when they think they conceived but doctors do not use that method, instead they use the dating from the first day of the last menses, meaning that the mother is not even pregnant yet.

Prices for abortion start from $950 in my clinic, but increase with the increase in the size of the pregnancy.

There is also an anaesthetic fee from about $200.00. However, this is only for an early abortion from 4 weeks.

If You Are Pregnant
9 weeks
It will be a simple early abortion and the charge will be around $2,000.00 (including GST, consultations, etc).
10 - 12 weeks
then it will not be a simple early abortion, but a late first-trimester abortion. This means that the abortion cannot be performed in one procedure. There is a preparatory phase, followed one or two days later by the actual abortion itself.
12 - 24 weeks
the preparatory phase is similar, but the actual operation is more difficult in view of the larger size. For such larger mid-term abortions, which usually require hospitalization and a complicated process, our clinic offers simpler, out-patient procedure which are safe and reduces the stress of the patient.

After the initial consultation, you will need to come back for a preparation stage before the actual abortion is performed on a separate sitting. After 10 weeks of pregnancy, you will need to have medicine inserted into the vagina to make the abortion safer for you. This medicine costs $200, and it increases in price to above $1,000.00. The exact size is roughly equivalent to the size of the pregnancy. 11 weeks would cost $1,500.00 whilst 14 weeks would costs $2,000.00. This is not inclusive of the first consultation, ultrasound and anaesthetic fees.

When the procedure can be done depends on whether you need to be fully counseled. This will be explained to you during the consultation. If you have already been counseled and can prove it then there is no need to repeat it.

The operation is painless and very fast. It takes only 20-30 minutes, but because the patient is put to sleep, you will need about one hour or more for the sedative drugs given to wear off. Therefore, you will need to be fully prepared before the abortion surgery. This means you need to fast for 4 hours (no food or drink - even water) before seeing the doctor. Also be prepared to spend about 2 to 3 hours in the clinic. The operation is performed during sleep - so it is painless.

After the procedure, you can go home as if nothing happened. At most you will feel like having had menstrual cramps. The surgery is therefore fast and convenient and no one will find out unless you tell them.

For early abortions, most recover quickly. Some can get more severe bleeding or cramps, just as this can complicate normal periods for many women.

As for the recovery after an abortion after 10 weeks, it is also quick. There is occasionally mild bleeding that is prolonged, with some menstrual cramps. This varies with each individual. Mild transient fever may occur and if it persists, you should contact Dr Jen. It is important for you to keep the review date which is given to you. This is normally one week after the operation.

As for the recovery after a 9 to 15 week abortion - it is quick fast. There is usually only mild bleeding for the first few days associated with mild menstrual-like cramps. About 3 to 7 days after the abortion surgery, there may be more bleeding and cramps, depending on each individual. A mild fever may occur during the first 12 hours after the procedure, but if it is any longer, you will need to contact Dr Jen.

The effects of pregnancy like morning sickness, palpitations, giddiness and other common feelings associated with early pregnancy will take one to two weeks to slowly taper away after the abortion, and does not disappear instantly. Even the urinary pregnancy test may take about two weeks to entirely disappear.
