Clinic for Abortion and Family Planning

An abortion allows a woman to go on with her life, and continue fulfilling her responsibility to herself, to her family and children, and to society.
P. Lunneborg, 1992

Our Principles

An unwanted pregnancy is a common occurrence in the life of a woman, but it can come by surprise and catch one off guard. In some situations, women know very quickly what to do. In others, the decision is very difficult, and women may need time and discussion with trusted people.

If you’re having an abortion, it is important that you’ve made your own decision and that you’re convinced it’s the best decision under the given circumstances.

An examination by a gynecologist or consultation with a counselling center can be helpful. However, these aren’t compulsory in Austria and are not prerequisites for having an abortion.

Here you can calculate the age of your pregnancy. Insert the first day of your last menstruation:

Counselling & methods

Your physical and mental well-being is our mutual interest.

Even if you come from another country, you’re welcome to make use of all our treatments and consultations. Once you’ve decided to have an abortion, three options are available to you.


Medical Abortion with Mifepristone (Mifegyne)®

Up to the 9th week of pregenancy

Mifepristone is a drug that selectively inhibits the function of progesterone. By taking Mifepristone, a pregnancy is terminated in a similar manner as an early miscarriage.

But another hormone, a prostaglandin, must be taken two days after Mifepristone to induce contractions of the uterus and assure expulsion of the gestational sac. If you wish to see the gestational sac, you’ll need to look closely at your pad or into the lavatory.


Surgical abortion

Up to the 14th week of pregnancy

You will receive local anaesthesia for your cervix; which will feel like 2 or 3 small pricks. As soon as the anaesthesia is working, the gynecologist will gently dilate the cervix a couple of millimeters in order to insert a small plastic tube into the uterus. The pregnancy and the uterine mucous membrane are removed by aspiration via this tube. At the end, an ultrasound examination is done via the abdominal wall to ensure that the uterus is empty. The procedure only takes a couple of minutes in all.


Important to know

If you have decided to terminate your pregnancy, you should consider these points:
