Mandatory consideration period

From 16 days amenorrhoea (from 6 weeks plus 2 days after the first day of the last menstruation), in the Netherlands, a mandatory consideration period of 5 days applies. The consideration period means that after an initial consultation you have with a doctor about the termination of your pregnancy, you need to consider your decision for a minimum of 5 days. You are, however, free to already book a treatment appointment at the clinic. Treatment can take place from the sixth day after the initial consultation. The initial consultation can be with your own GP, a gynecologist or a doctor at our clinic. A referral letter from a midwife is not valid.
