An early medical abortion.By anonymous on 29/08/2014
After weeks of googling and endless nights of reading medical abortion horror stories, it's safe to say I was pretty nervous! As I was confident with my decision to terminate my pregnancy I was prepared for the emotional pain of the procedure however the thought of the physical pain was causing me more and more anxiety each day but all in all I was worrying over nothing. I went in for my first tablet and was seen to very quickly at a clinic about an hour away on the train from me. I was taken into the medical room and given a scan (because it was very early on in the pregnancy it was hard to see what they needed with a regular ultrasound so I received an internal scan which is nowhere near as scary As it sounds, just a probe into the vagina) after my scan I was asked to read a quick leaflet and then take my first pill and was allowed to leave immediately. The day I went in for my second pill I was extremely nervous! My main concern was the nausea and sickness as I had just about had enough of that during the pregnancy but it wasn't too bad. After taking my pills I got on a train with my friend and waited for the pain which I was certain was going to cripple me in public, but the pain at first was no worse than period pains. I was sick a few times on the train which was more embarrassing than uncomfortable or painful and after I had vomited I felt a LOT better. When I got home I felt well enough to eat and allllllll I could think about was white chocolate so I nibbled some of that while lying on the couch watching come dine with me but I just couldn't relax. Suddenly I had the feeling that I desperately needed the toilet and so I rushed to the loo, when I sat down I could feel blood rushing out like pee which worried me but is completely normal and not in anyway painful, then I heard a plop and realised that I had passed the pregnancy. After that I experienced some quite bad cramps and had the urge to go to the toilet again this time I passed a huge blood clot and after this I felt completely fine and back to normal. Besides some moderately heavy bleeding I am completely fine the day after my medical abortion, nothing to worry about!
