(Emergency) Contraception

Are you looking for a method of contraception – for example the pill, contraceptive injection or contraceptive implant?


If you have had sex without a condom or if the condom broke during sex, you could have picked up a sexually transmitted infection (STI).


We offer a variety of abortion procedures. From the moment you test positive, you can contact us.  Follow the link to read more about the various methods.

Would you like some assistance with your choice of contraception or advice on sexual health?  Epione can help you with (emergency) contraception, an STI test or an abortion up to 18 weeks into the pregnancy.

You will be in good hands.  Our professional team has a wealth of experience in sexual healthcare.  Our care is safe and anonymous.  But most importantly, we’re here to help you.  We will listen to you if you want to confide in us.  And if you don’t, that is fine by us as well.

Abortion is almost always free of charge if you live or work in the Netherlands.

When you contact us, we will be able to quickly find out whether you are eligible for free treatment.

Do you want to find out how many weeks you are pregnant or would you prefer to have a chat first?  Call us to make an appointment.  We normally can see you almost straightaway. Also ask us about the opening hours on weekends.

Are you only looking for (emergency) contraception?  Call us and we can discuss your options.

Where to find us and contact details

Kliniek Epione is based in Amsterdam Zuid-Oost in the AHTC building, Tower B on the 6th floor (also known as the Ada-building).  We are easily accessible by car as well as by public transport.

Unfortunately you can’t park at our location. There is a parking garage nearby.


No, you’re still fertile straight after an abortion.  Abortion is one of the safest medical procedures, provided it is done by a medical expert.  Organisations against abortion spread a lot of misinformation about abortions.  If you’re not sure about the truth of the information you have read, why don’t you give us a call and we can give you detailed explanations and information?

Both procedures are very safe and effective however they differ in their pros and cons.  If you are not sure which procedure suits you best, why don’t you give us a call? +31 (0)20-787 1377

You can find more information on the different methods in Abortion Procedures.

There has been much research into mental problems after an abortion.  There doesn’t seem to be a link between abortion and mental illness.  People experience mixed feelings but most of the time it is a feeling of relief.

Some people experience it as a life event which can have a significant impact on their wellbeing.  It may help to talk about it with friends or a professional before or after the procedure.  There is more information on our website under Aftercare.  We can also refer you to therapists who will be able to help you.

All methods of contraception have their pros and cons.  Most important is that you choose a method which suits you best. The contraceptive must be medically suitable for you. Maybe you don’t want to think about it every day. Or do you want to be able to predict when your period will come?  We can inform you about the different methods and help you with your choice.  More information on the different methods can be found on our website www.anticonceptie.nl.
