I want an abortion
Do you wish to have an abortion? Contact a hospital with a gynaecology department. Norway has a free choice of provider system, which means that you can choose which hospital you wish to use. You do not need a referral from your GP, nor do you need to explain your decision. You are not required to take time to think about your decision.
After you have contacted the hospital, you will be given an appointment for a pre-examination. During the pre-examination, staff will measure your blood pressure, listen to your heart and lungs, and take an ultrasound to determine exactly how many weeks you have been pregnant. The ultrasound will be internal, which involves inserting a small oblong rod into the vagina. You will also be given information about the different abortion methods:
