I had the medical abortion yesterday, I was 6 weeks and 6 days gone
I went on the Monday for the first tablet, there was no bleeding just slight cramps.
Then I went back Wednesday and had the 4 tablets put up inside me.
After the 1st tablet I felt so guilty I was contemplating not going back but I decided it were for the best.
After the 4 tablets were put in I was told to go and sit down for an hour (my hospital you stayed for the whole abortion).
I had cramps which were just like bearable period pain & was being sick, which was a side effect of the tablet.
The nurse then told me to stand up and go for a walk as all the other girls had started to bleed but hadn't passed the pregnancy and I hadn't even bled.
As soon as i got to the end of the corridor I just felt something basically fall out of me, (I'm sorry that's a horrible way to put it). I went back, went to change myself and there was the fetus.
It didn't upset me I just popped it in the bowl and gave it to the nurse! There was hardly any bleeding and an hour later I could go home.
This morning I feel fine, hardly any bleeding and best decision I ever made, I think I was scared of the pain.
Everybody is different though, some girls bled and bled, & the fetus still hadn't passed & mine took 2½ hours & now I'm fine!
