Abortion (French: IVG, interruption volontaire de grossesse)
Surgical abortion, also known as suction aspiration abortion, can be performed in a half-day procedure.
I can not speak Japanese.
The doctor can speak English fluently and French well. The nurse can speak English well.
When can I undergo?
Once we observe the gestational sac larger than 10 mm, you can schedule the procedure.
What tests do I need to do?
To screen for the infectious diseases, you need to undergo a blood test. In case you are infected with HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, or syphilis, we decline to perform the procedure. If you are suffering from severe anemia or organ dysfunction, we decline as well.
When can I schedule the procedure?
On the days when we are open; at the earliest, three days later. Thus, 9:10 am on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.
I wish to know the details of the procedure.
You have an IV placed.
The doctor administers medicine intraveneously for conscious sedation (extra fee).
The doctor perfoms local anesthesia by injecting anesthetics into your cervix (neck of the womb).
The doctor removes the uterine content by means of manual vacuum aspiration. This procedure itself takes only 5-10 minutes.
After ultrasonography, you move to the recovery area. It takes 30-60 minutes.
Total fee is approximately 120,000-220,000 yen depending on the gestational age; including the fees for preoperative tests. If you not need intraveneous anesthesia, it will be 33,000 yen more.
The structure of clinic provides relatively more privacy to the patient and the patient's accompanying person.
