Abortion Procedures

Which method suits you best?

Normally an abortion is free of charge if you live and work in the Netherlands.  We offer various abortion methods.  You’ll find below a list with the different methods and their pros and cons.  We will also discuss these with you in detail during your visit to the clinic to make sure we use the right method for you.  Would you like to make an appointment or receive some advice over the telephone?  Please call us on 020-787 13 77, so that we can help you.

After an abortion, you can be fitted with an IUD or have an implant placed.  Just ask during your consultation with us or look at Contraception for more information.
