Surgical Abortion ( Surgery )

Choices Womens Clinic provides surgical abortions starting from the very earliest the pregnancy can be seen by ultrasound.

Surgical abortion is commonly performed in the first trimester, (up to 12 weeks’ gestation period) – it has a low risk when performed during this timeframe. The procedure can also be performed when you’re in your second trimester (up to 20 weeks). However, the surgery is more complicated if undergone at this point.

Based on the gestation (stage of your pregnancy), our nurses and doctors will recommend what safe abortion procedure is right for you. Marie Stopes prices are affordable and abortion clinics are located across South Africa.

A surgical abortion can be done safely only if the pregnancy can be definitely seen inside the uterus on careful ultrasound exam.


The lower limit of visualization of a pregnancy by ultrasound is 5 weeks by menstrual age (approximately 3 weeks after conception). The surgical abortion method used for first trimester abortions is known as suction dilatation and curettage (D&C). During the procedure, the cervical canal is very gently dilated with sterile dilators, and the uterine contents are gently suctioned out with sterile, one-use-only, disposable plastic uterine curettes.


Feel free to ask about anything that concerns you. Trust your feelings about the way you are treated on the phone (when you make the appointment) as well as in person. You should not have to defend yourself to anyone; you should feel supported in your decision and how you want your care to be provided. The good news is most women who have abortions in the United States are highly satisfied with their care.

A staff member at a clinic describes how it can and should be:

At our clinic, counselors are trained to help each woman sort out her feelings. We do not invade anyone’s privacy if she tells us that her decision is clear and not coerced, and that she does not want to discuss her reasons or feelings. At the same time, if she needs to talk through what she’s feeling, we spend time working through those emotions with her. Women talk with each other, not just with the counselor. We provide very detailed and accurate information about the abortion procedure. A woman can have a friend stay with her during the abortion. When there is a decision to be made, the woman herself is an active participant
