There are different ways to have an abortion, and there are many providers of abortion services. The options available to you depend on your stage of pregnancy.
You can determine how many weeks pregnant you are by counting from the first day of your last period.
Abortion with pills is the most common method and abortion pills can be safely used at home in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Since abortion is illegal in Malta, abortion pills are usually obtained from online telemedicine providers such as Women on Web and Women Help Women. Please remember that using abortion pills in Malta is illegal.
Beyond 12 weeks of pregnancy, it is safer to have an abortion in a clinic abroad, either with pills but under supervision or using surgical methods. Abortion Support Network can help you organise a trip to an abortion clinic abroad, provide you with accommodation, and even help you pay for part of your expenses.
You can use the interactive app on our website to find which abortion options are available to you at your stage of pregnancy.
