I was 5 weeks pregnant and decided to take the pill

By anonymous on 13/07/2014
I was 5 weeks pregnant and decided to take the pill I was very scared at first but I was told the longer you wait the more painful it becomes.
Honestly I had spent two days reading people's stories and how painful it is, so I took the pills as instructed, laid down on the floor and waited for the pain. Four hours passed and I started throwing up, started to feel cramps but very mild,the bleeding started, the cramping increased but it wasn't the pain that everyone was saying it was. Period cramps with a bit of fever that disappeared within 30 minutes.
I fell asleep and woke up to clots of blood,a bit of cramping and that was it.
I now believe everyone experiences it differently.
