If you have made the decision for an abortion, three options are available to you. Each method of abortion is equally safe and effective. You should make the decision on your preferred method once you have been thoroughly informed on each method. In the following you will find a description of each method.
- Medical abortion using Mifepristone (Mifegyne®/Mifeprex®)
- Surgical abortion by aspiration
- Comparison of surgical and medical abortion
A termination of pregnancy without complications leaves no traces and therefore will not be detectable later on, not even by a doctor. It has has no negative influence on fertility or any future medical treatment or operation. Furthermore the termination will have no effects on your natural body functions f.e. menstruation, sexuality etc. It is common to all methods that fertility comes back very fast. Usually the next ovulation occurs after 2 weeks and you can get pregnant again if you do not use an effective contraceptive method. For further information please go to: www.abtreibung.at
For an abortion we charge 490 Euro up to the 10th week of pregnancy (from the 1st day of the last menstruation) and 530 Euro for pregnancies older than 10 weeks. These prices remain the same regardless of the chosen method of abortion (we have an ATM for payment). The determination of the blood group, if necessary, and the so called “Rhesus injection” for women with the blood group Rhesus Negative are included in the price.
Early development of a pregnancy
Up to 6 1/2 weeks calculated from the 1st day of the last menstruation cycle, no embryo can be visualized yet, therefore merely a gestational sac can be seen. A picture of a gestational sac in the fifth and the sixth week of pregnancy and a corresponding ultrasonic image are shown below.
No embryo is observable therein, as it is not yet developed.
