  • Blood-pressure check.

  • Pregnancy test to confirm that the pregnancy has ended (pregnancy tests can show a positive result for a while after an abortion).
  • Check of your bleeding pattern to ensure it is normal and there is no infection.
  • Assistance with your contraceptive needs.
  • Arrange counselling if necessary.

 
Cost: Free. This service is paid for by the State and available to all women regardless of whether you have attended IFPA medical or counselling services in the past.
