Termination of Pregnancy

The removal of an unplanned pregnancy from the uterus of a woman is a simple procedure, taking only a few minutes,  done under anaesthetic;  the doctor inserts an instrument called a speculum into the vagina so that he can see the cervix.  The doctor increases the size of the cervical opening by using a series of sterile metal dilators, thereby increasing the cervical opening; a sterile tube is attached to a vacuum aspirator which is inserted into the uterus and the foetal tissue and some lining of the uterus is removed.

Ultra Sounds

Ultrasound is a simple and pain free examination where sound waves are passed through your body through a hand-held device and a picture is shown on a screen.  We like to ultrasound all of our patients because it shows us a very clear picture of your uterus (some women may have an abnormality), and because it allows us to know exactly how far pregnant you are.  This safe and routine procedure is done by the operation doctor and is performed pre-operatively.
