Abortion Services in London

In the UK, abortion is a safe and legal medical procedure. It's a common part of reproductive healthcare services. Statistics show that over 200,000 women in England and Wales have an abortion annually, and roughly a third of women in the UK will have one by age 45. The NHS and licensed clinics provide abortion services. These services prioritise the health and safety of women. You can find confidential advice and support to make decisions about your pregnancy termination and sexual health needs.

How Does the Abortion Pill Work?

The abortion pill is a safe way of ending a pregnancy and it can be done in the comfort of your home as long as you meet the requirements. If you’re looking for abortion clinics in London, we can provide you with pills by post if you are less than 10 weeks pregnant.


The medical abortion process involves two medications:

  • Mifepristone: This medication is taken first and works by blocking the hormone progesterone. Progesterone is essential for a pregnancy to continue developing. By blocking it, mifepristone stops the growth of the pregnancy. It's taken orally with water as a single pill.
  • Misoprostol: This medication is taken after mifepristone and causes the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy tissue. Misoprostol mimics natural hormone-like substances in the body called prostaglandins, which are involved in menstruation and childbirth. This can cause cramping and bleeding similar to a miscarriage. Misoprostol is typically taken as several pills, but the exact number may vary depending on the specific protocol used.

You will take up to 6 Misoprostol pills in a medical abortion. 4 of these can be either inserted into the vagina where they’ll dissolve or they can be placed between your cheek and gum for 30 minutes to dissolve before swallowing. If you do not start bleeding or only have light spotting you should take the remaining 2 Misoprostol pills in your treatment pack. Either place in the vagina again, or between your cheek and gum. When you use Mifepristone and Misoprostol together, it will cause an abortion.

NUPAS’s abortion clinics in London provide early medical abortions and will talk you through every detail of how to take the medications involved. If you ever have any concerns, speak to us immediately.

Abortion Counselling: Looking After Your Wellbeing

Our caring counsellors are available by phone for confidential appointments. Whether you're a NUPAS patient or just considering abortion services with us, we're here to listen without judgment. While our counselling sessions can provide support, they are not intended for urgent mental health needs. If you need immediate help, we can connect you with a specialist service.

Pre-abortion Counselling- Are you still considering your options? We offer confidential counselling sessions to explore your feelings about pregnancy. Discuss all your choices in a safe space before making a decision. Our supportive counsellors won't pressure you - they're here to listen and help you develop coping mechanisms. If you choose to proceed with an abortion, we can connect you with the appropriate care.

Post-abortion Counselling- Our caring team can schedule a phone counselling appointment if you'd like to talk to a trained professional about your abortion. These sessions are confidential and judgment-free. Our abortion clinics in London want to offer you as much support as you need.

Other Sexual Health Services Provided in Our London Abortion Clinics

STI Testing

Getting tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is crucial for your sexual health. It's the only way to know for sure if you have an infection. Testing is especially recommended if you've had unprotected sex, have a new partner, or suspect your partner might have been with someone else.  We offer STI testing during your abortion appointments for chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, HIV and Syphilis.

Contraception Services

As part of our abortion care services, many of our abortion clinics in London will provide you with post-abortion contraception. We offer long-acting contraception which includes the contraceptive implant, contraceptive injection, Intrauterine device (IUD) and the Intrauterine System (IUS). These options will require a visit to your local London clinic and they’re quick appointments.

We provide short-acting contraception as well as these options which also work to prevent pregnancy after an abortion. These include condoms, the contraceptive patch, the combined pill, the progestogen-only pill, the vaginal ring and emergency contraception (in the case of failed contraception). Speak to our team today to find the best option for you.
