I had my abortion today I was approximately 6 weeks pregnant.
At first I thought I was getting a medical termination when I arrived at the clinic, but when I was speaking to the doctor she recommended me to have the surgical termination instead because it has definitely less pain and less bleeding.
I had an ultrasound scan to confirm my pregnancy then I had to sign some paper work to consent to the abortion.
Firstly, I had to pass urine before having the surgical termination.
I was so scared and sad at the same time.Then they called my name to change into their clothes. When I saw the operating room I started to panic so bad with all the needles and equipment in front of my face because I am so afraid of needles.
The nurse told me to lie down on the bed and took a blood pressure test for me.
The doctor was so gentle he put a needle in my arm and I could not feel a thing, he was amazing. I was then given a second needle to put me to sleep I could not feel a thing also.
By the time I woke up the procedure was done. I felt no pain whatsoever. I just felt tired. I realized there was another needle in my arm and I was freaking out but I was surprised that it didn't hurt.
I was resting for approximately 1 hour. The nurse took the needle out for me. I got dressed and my partner took me home. I was freaking out at first but did not experience any pain whatsoever less than ordinary period pain you normally have. And I'm only 19 years old.
