This service is available for women wishing to end their pregnancy before 9 weeks (63 days) of pregnancy (at the time of being prescribed Mifepristone) confirmed by ultrasound. MUMS early medical termination of pregnancy service is a safe and legal way to end a pregnancy at an early gestation. The service is available for singleton and twin pregnancies. An ultrasound scan and screening appointment must take place before the consultation and prescribing with the consultant gynaecologists.
Early Medical Termination of Pregnancy – often referred to as abortions - can only be provided by qualified doctors and clinics such as MUMS who are registered with the Care Quality Comission to provide this regulated activity.
Medical abortions – if you are less than 9 weeks are available at MUMS Solihull with highly experienced consultant gynaecologists – who will prescribe the medication following scan/tests/consultation and consent.
During the consultation, the reasons for you wanting an early termination of pregnancy will be discussed in detail and you will be offered the opportunity to see MUMS counsellor, if you are not entirely sure.
The consultant will check your scan result/Sexually transmitted disease/infection results and Hb ( haemoglobin levels ) before issuing any medication.
You will be asked to sign the medical abortion consent form.
Early medical abortion involves two types of prescribed medication to end the pregnancy early.
The first dose of medication is taken during the consultation ( oral mifepristone ).
The second dose of medication ( Vaginal Misoprostol ) will be given to you to take at home two days later.
You will be given a patient information leaflet and a contact number should you have any concerns at home.
The pregnancy is passed (comes out) through the vagina. This usually happens several hours after patients take the second dose.
Dr Woodhead will advise patients that they should expect - Lower abdominal pain/cramping and vaginal bleeding. Pain can be severe in some cases, requiring the use of strong painkillers (like codeine). Most terminations are complete within 4-7 hours of using misoprostol but for some it takes longer. Light vaginal bleeding or spotting can continue until the next menstrual period even if the abortion is complete.
Occasionally, the pregnancy does not pass, and an operation is needed to remove it. Therefore, we offer a free of charge follow up scan – two weeks after your appointment.
MUMS do not offer surgical termination of pregnancy.
