We both decided on abortion.By anonymous on 03/02/2015
My boyfriend and I have been together for four years now and as immature and reckless as it is we have never used protection. I started noticing changes in my appetite and any food I could think of or smell would make me nauseous.
I talked to my boyfriend and asked him to stay with me while I take the pregnancy test, I assured him that I was just doing it to double check, but I strongly thought otherwise. Both tests came out positive, I began to cry because I am only 18 and he's 20- you could imagine how two full-time students with minimum wage pay checks would affect the baby's life.. We both decided on abortion.
I went to the clinic and told them I wanted to be 100% sure I was pregnant. When the test came out positive again I made an appointment three days later for a medical abortion. It was really easy and simple, they did an ultrasound to make sure there weren't going to be any complications, then took a blood sample to check for anaemia. Then they give you the first set of pills which you take orally and directions on how to use the second set at home the following day. So they told me there would be nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, and heavy cramps. There definitely was, 30 minutes after taking the first set of pills I vomited, then I felt better the entire day.
The next day I took the second set and 30 minutes after all the symptoms hit me hard for the next 6 hours until I fell asleep. Now, the third day was fine and the fourth and fifth day were accompanied by horrible cramps and heavy bleeding. There were times where I wish I opted for surgical abortion, because this still hurts on the 5th day and the ibuprofen isn't the least bit helpful.
