Our Tele-abortion service delivers the same safe, personal, compassionate and professional medical abortion care that Clinic 66 is renowned for, in the comfort and privacy of your own home ~ No need to visit the Clinic!

Tele-Abortion consists of three consultations (via video and/or phone) with experienced and skilled health professionals who will assess your situation, request the necessary tests, prescribe the relevant medications, guide you along the way and follow you up according to best practice.

Although Tele-Abortion is an effective and convenient alternative for early pregnancy termination (ie, under 9 weeks gestation), it is not without risk or discomfort. If you can get to our Clinic, it will be quicker, easier and cheaper to begin your medical abortion at the clinic (although it will still be completed at home). 

 

This is because if you attend the clinic, we will do the ultrasound and provide the medication on the same day. 

How does Tele-Abortion work?

TeleAbortion at Clinic 66 for Gynaecare.
  1. You complete the Suitability Test to ensure that you are suitable for Tele-Abortion.
     

  2. You book an appointment and then meet with one of our specialist consultants online at a time convenient for you.
     

  3. At your first appointment, (which is bulk billed if you have a Medicare card, and $75 if you don't), the consultant will review your situation and provide you with an ultrasound request form, which you will have done locally. You will also be given access to the Tele-Abortion Online Consulting Room.
     

  4. At your second appointment, (which is $270 upfront with $75 Medicare rebate), the consultant will review your test results, guide you through the medical abortion process and prescribe your medications, which you'll pick up or have couriered from an agreed dispensing pharmacy close to you.
     

  5. At the agreed time, you will take the first tablet, which interrupts the pregnancy. You can take this tablet anytime, but you should wear a sanity pad just in case. It is unlikely that you will experience any pain, but some women do bleed.
     

  6. Between 24 & 48 hours after the first tablet, you will take the second lot of 4 tablets which causes the uterus to contract and induces a miscarriage. You will experience cramping and bleeding (which can be severe) for up to 6 hours. In about 95% of cases, this completes the pregnancy termination process.  

    Pain does not usually continue beyond 6 hours, though bleeding may continue for two to three weeks.
     

  7. A follow-up assessment and an at-home urine pregnancy test is essential to ensure that the Medical abortion process is complete.

The MS2step medication is listed on the PBS and is quite affordable at approx $40 ($12 if you have a healthcare card). But if you do not have a medicare card, it is substantially more expensive (approx $300 without medicare).

You may also have to pay for your ultrasound. Prices vary, and medicare rebates do apply. If you hold a Medicare card, you may be able to negotiate 'bulk billing' from your local provider. ​
