If you cannot keep an appointment, we kindly but firmly request you to notify us by telephone at least 24 hours beforehand!
The vacant appointment can then be assigned to somebody else. If you wish, you can arrange a new date for treatment with the receptionist.
Day on which treatment is scheduled
Please register at reception when you arrive. After completing a questionnaire, you are interviewed by a nurse and undergo a preliminary examination. Ultrasound scanning is used to determine exactly how many weeks pregnant you are. During the interview with the nurse, you can also discuss your choice of birth control product/method. She can also answer any other questions you may have. Sometimes additional blood tests are required.
The treatment method and observation time vary depending on the duration of your pregnancy. After the procedure, you are prescribed antibiotics.
You may take 1 accompanying person to the clinic.
Children are not allowed in the clinic.
You visit the clinic again for a follow-up after three weeks. You can also have the check-up performed by your own GP or gynaecologist if you wish.
If treatment takes place under a general anaesthetic, you are not allowed to operate a vehicle during the first 24 hours. We require you to arrange transport back home.
