Graphic instruction for all the people that get (buy, receive by post, get from friends, from doctors, from pharmacists, from the internet) the pills called mifepristone and misoprostol. The instructions show how to use abortion pills safely at home. The pills provoke an abortion, a process similar to miscarriage.
If you live in South Africa., abortion is legal in every state. However, it is a crime to induce an abortion if you did not get the medicines (mifepristone, misoprostol) from a doctor, nurse practitioner, physician assistant or nurse midwife who is authorized to provide these medicines.
I just found out that I am pregnant, what are my options?You have three options when facing an unplanned pregnancy. You can carry the pregnancy to term and raise a child yourself; you can continue with the pregnancy and place the child for adoption or in foster care or you can choose to have an abortion to terminate the pregnancy. It’s important that you take the time to consider all of your options and discuss the issue with your partner, a friend or a family member (if you feel safe and comfortable doing so). Ultimately the decision of whether or not to continue with the pregnancy should be yours. What if I want to have an abortion? If you choose to have an abortion, ensure you choose a safe and legal provider like us, Faith Women's Clinics, you just need to book an appointment online or call us on +27727793390. Our team will tell you what to expect and let you know what plans to make for the day of your appointment. What safe abortion options are there?There are two options available to you which are the Faith Women's Clinic Medical Process (4-9 weeks) and the Faith Women's Clinic Surgical Abortion (4-20 weeks). At what age is it legal to do abortion?The Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act states that a women can have an abortion at any age- you should never be denied the service because of your age. If you’re young we advise you to chat to a trusted adult (a parent, aunt or teacher) and ask someone to accompany you to the centre for your appointment, but this is not required. Can I get an abortion at Faith Women's Clinic if I am not from South Africa? Yes, we can assist women from anywhere in the world. If you are travelling from another country we may not be able to provide you with the option of the Faith Women's Clinic Medical Process as in requires an in-country follow up appointment after 3 weeks. Why do you stop offering abortions at 20 weeks? The law which governs abortion in South Africa restricts procedures at 20 weeks except in some cases where there is a threat to the woman’s health. Faith Women's Clinic South Africa is only designated to provide abortion services up to 20 weeks. What are the differences between the two options? Faith Women's Clinic Medical Process abortion, sometimes referred to as the abortion pill, uses pills/tablets to terminate a pregnancy. The first set of tablets is taken orally in the clinic and the second set is taken later at home. Early surgical abortion (4-12 weeks) involves a gentle suction method, which the nurse will use to remove the pregnancy from the uterus. This is a very quick and simple procedure that takes less than 5 minutes. The Surgical abortion (12- 20 weeks) is a surgical procedure where the pregnancy is removed vaginally it is performed by a doctor. Which option is better? Neither option is better than the other- it’s a question of both personal choice and medical history that will determine the method that is best for you. Some women say they prefer to finish the procedure in one day, others feel that the medical process more suits their lifestyle. A nurse will provide all the details to help you decide during your consultation. How do I know which option(s) I am eligible for? On the day of your appointment one of our supportive nurses will offer you a consultation session, including a physical exam. Once the stage of your pregnancy is confirmed you’ll be asked some questions about your medical history- it’s important to provide all of the relevant information requested (i.e. if you have a blood disorder like anemia or deep vein thrombosis). What if I have had a cesarean section?Your eligibility for the Faith Women's Clinic Medical Process may be affected by previous pregnancies and deliveries. It will depend on how many cesarean sections you have had and how recently. What kind of pain management is available? One of the Faith Women's Clinic staff will be talking to you to comfort you and relieve pain without medication during the procedure. This is called the Vocal Local method. Some of our centres also have an option called conscious sedation which makes you sleep during the procedure. What is conscious sedation? Conscious sedation is available at selected Faith Women's Clinic centres. It is a form of anesthetic that allows you to feel sleepy and relax or fall asleep during the procedure. If you decide to opt for sedation its important to let us know when you make your booking so that we schedule you on the appropriate time and date. You will also receive a set of fasting guidelines to follow, so you know when to stop eating and drinking. What if I think I’m still pregnant after the abortion? In around 1% of medical processes the pregnancy may continue even after taking the medication. If you have continued symptoms of pregnancy such as nausea, vomiting or breast tenderness you should contact our Client Services centre. A positive pregnancy test 2 to 3 weeks after your process began does not indicate a continued pregnancy. This may just be caused by the pregnancy hormones still in your system. If the pregnancy is continuing after the Faith Women's Clinic Medical Process we will perform the Faith Women's Clinic Surgical Procedure at our centre at no cost to you. When can I have sex again after an abortion?We advise that you do not have vaginal intercourse or insert anything into your vagina for one week. Can I fall pregnant after an abortion? How soon after?You can conceive again as early as one week after an abortion so it’s important to talk to a nurse about a contraceptive method that’s right for you. We have a wide range of contraceptive and family planning methods available for you to choose from. Do I need to come back to the centre after my process or procedure?If you opt for the Faith Women's Clinic Procedure you do not need to come back to the centre unless you have a question or would like another service. If you choose the Faith Women's Clinic Medical Process you will need to come for a follow up visit 3 weeks later. Call us on +27727793390 or make a booking for your follow up.

When can I travel after my abortion?You can travel as soon as you feel well enough to after the procedure but we do not recommend the Faith Women's Clinic Medical Process for women who are travelling a significant distance (by air or road). What if I started an abortion at home or from someone that doesn’t work for Faith Women's Clinic South Africa? Because we do not have triage facilities if you are already in the process of an abortion we recommend you present yourself at your nearest hospital for treatment. If you have purchased “abortion pills” from someone who is not a designated provider do NOT consume the medication. Call us on +27727793390 to book a safe abortion.
