Contraception after an abortion

You can get pregnant almost immediately after an abortion. Luckily, most methods of contraception can be started on the same day as your treatment, which means you can get protected straight away.

We can arrange to have your method of contraception ready straight after your treatment. You may have already discussed this with one of our contraception nurses over the telephone. If not, we will talk with you about your preferred contraception during your medical assessment.

We can usually supply your initial contraception while you are with us, so you won’t have to arrange an immediate appointment with your GP or local family planning service. However, you may need to contact these services for your future contraceptive needs.
