Once you are sure you are pregnant there are people you can talk to if you are considering an abortion. The following services can help you:
- fpa’s helpline
- the fpa unplanned pregnancy counselling service in Northern Ireland
- a contraception or sexual health clinic
- a young people’s clinic (there will be an upper age limit)
- your general practice
- a private abortion clinic (you can refer yourself to these clinics).
Abortions can be done free on the NHS but you will need a referral to the abortion service. If you don’t want to go to your general practice or you are not registered it is best to seek help from a contraceptive clinic in the area where you live. This can help avoid delays in referring you for an abortion or you can go to private abortion clinic.
