Pursuant to Act No. 66/1986 Coll. of the Czech Republic, a woman can request an abortion up to the 12th week of pregnancy without any restrictions.
How does it work?
An abortion, or termination of pregnancy, is a minor surgical procedure in which the contents of the uterine cavity are removed by vacuum aspiration (i.e., suction),
either at the patient's request due to unwanted pregnancy or for medical reasons on the advice of a doctor.
Up to the 12th weekAn abortion can only be performed up to the 12th week after the last menstrual period.
AnaesthesiaThe procedure is performed under general anaesthesia.
10-minute procedureThe procedure usually takes less than 10 minutes.
UltrasoundAfter aspiration, the doctor will check the uterine cavity with ultrasound.
Total duration of the processAfter approximately two to three hours, the patient can be escorted home.

When can I expect my first menstrual period after an abortion?
The first menstrual period after the procedure occurs individually, but usually in 4-6 weeks.
What happens after the procedure?
There may be slight bleeding and mild pain in the lower abdomen after the procedure. Common analgesics can be used for pain. We recommend a rest regimen.
