Facts about abortion

These facts are based on the findings and claims of authorities such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.


Abortion is one of the safest medical procedures, if performed correctly by a trained staff, using the right medical practices and medications and in hygienic conditions. Abortions without health reasons, performed properly and during the first trimester, are in fact safer than childbirth. Most women, and other people who undergo a properly performed abortion will not suffer any long-term consequences for their health and reproductive health.

Abortion does not increase the risk of breast cancer

The WHO emphasizes that validated data does not indicate an increased risk of breast cancer after miscarriage or abortion.

An abortion that was carried out without complications does not reduce your chances of getting pregnant in the future.

There is no proven link between abortion and subsequent infertility. Research shows that a properly performed abortion without complications does not lead to infertility.

Mental health

Abortions do not cause serious mental problems. Negative psychological consequences occur in only a very small number of people and are rather a continuation of pre-existing mental health problems. For most women, girls and other people, the decision to have an abortion is not easy. Your response will depend on your situation at the time of the abortion. You may feel relieved or sad. These emotions can alternate in different phases. However, most people do not have long-term emotional problems. People who have unintentionally become pregnant and had previously experienced mental health problems should know that these problems can persist regardless of whether they choose to abort or continue the pregnancy. In case of problems, seek medical help or contact one of the helplines.

Practical information

Time is an important factor

In Slovakia, you have the opportunity to undergo an abortion on request or for health reasons until the 12th week of pregnancy. In the later period (after the 12th week), the abortion is only possible if the woman’s life is in danger, if the fetus is unable to live or is severely damaged. The beginning of pregnancy is counted from the first day of the last period. That means in reality you have less time than 12 weeks. Also expect to have to wait a 48-hour compulsory waiting period after being counselled by a doctor and before the abortion itself. This restriction can cause, that you will not manage to get an abortion on time, so take it into account in advance.

Girls under the age of 18

Girls under the age of 16 the consent of their parent or legal guardian. Parents of girls between the ages of 16 and 18 will be notified by the medical facility.

The price
