I had a medical abortion todayBy anonymous on 15/06/2010
I had a medical abortion today.
I was 7 weeks pregnant and did this on the NHS. I waited a week from when I first went in for a scan etc to when I went in yesterday for the first pill I had to take orally. I did not have any side effects from this at all. I went in this morning and the staff and nurses were all really pleasant and kind to me. I was given four small tablets to insert vaginally and I had to do this myself which I was pleased about. After this was done I sat with the nurse and she gave me the pill and talked me through what to expect. I was surprised to find I was allowed to go home, as long as I had someone with me able to take me back and stay the day with me. I found this a great ease as I would be in my own home and would not feel awkward or anxious being in hospital.
