I had a medical abortion at 6 weeks 2 days
I felt great sadness and relief, that the medication was working.
The second dose was much worse. I didn't get any painkillers from the doctor so I decided to take 800 mg of ibuprofen myself. Only 20 minutes after ingesting I got chills and very strong contractions, I was just sitting and trying to stay alive. I was in such a pain, that I wasn't even able to pee, I couldn't relax my pelvic muscles. I was prepared, that the whole process should take no more than 12 hours, oh boy, I was wrong. The bleeding, which starts after the first dose stopped after taking the second one. I had really really strong pain, I took 2800 mg of ibuprofen the first day, just to lower the pain a little. After 28 hours of taking Misoprostol bleeding started again, nothing heavy. Pain was tolerable just with 1200 mg of ibuprofen per day.
I thought, that the worse part had to be definitely behind me, however, the third day was the real hell. I was literally crying from pain, which was located in my ovaries and pelvis, it was so strong that 1200 mg of ibuprofen AND other analgesia taken simultaneously barely had any effect.
The 4th day I had no pain, bleeding slowly stopped. I felt that something isn't right and I am still pregnant. I went for an ultrasound and I was. The gestational sack was still in my uterus. I was devastated, I really did want to be over it already. I had 5 days left for my body to solve this situation "naturally", otherwise I would have to have a vacuum aspiration. The 9th day my gestational sack left, no blood, no pain, just 1 inch of tissue.
Although it was a very difficult experience, I would decide on this again.
