Brampton Women's Clinic
Pregnancy termination (also knowns as an abortion) is one of the most difficult decisions for women of any age. We respect your decision and we are here to help you. Our professional team is committed to provide high quality of individualized care to women in a safe and relaxing atmosphere.
Surgical abortion is one of the most common surgical procedures performed in Canada. The rate of complications is less that 2% and most complications are minor and easily treated. If compared to pregnancy and childbearing, abortion is much safer.
Before the abortion procedure it is important to know the duration of your pregnancy. The duration of your pregnancy will be confirmed at our clinic by an ultrasound and pelvic examination.
After the doctor completes the assessment she/he will insert the speculum into the vagina to hold the walls of the vagina walls open so the cervix can be seen. The cervix is then numbed with local anaesthetic. A registered nurse will offer analgesic/ anxiolitic (painkiller and relaxing medication) to help with the comfort during the procedure.
