A medical abortion

I had a medical abortion today and its not as bad as I thought it would be. As soon as I got home from hospital I started heavily bleeding with average cramp later in the afternoon. I sat on the toilet and felt clots pass, it was a weird feeling but no pain. I think the only annoying thing is the cramps they sometime get bad then go back normal.

Editor's Comment

The cramping is the womb contracting to expel the pregnancy, and this can be very painful for some people and less so for others.
