My recent painful medical abortion was anything but text-book
I had a medical abortion a few days ago mine was not text book at all
I was given the tablet that blocks the pregnancy hormone and then given 4 tablets that needed to be inserted vaginally.
Within 10 minutes I felt the cramping and I hadn't even left the hospital, then I got in the car and went home.
When I got in the pains were unbearable I wanted to die.
I have had 7 kids so I put the pain down to having a weak womb
I kept feeling the need to push and kept going toilet.
The blood was a lot and I felt really weak and sick then after 4 times trying to go toilet I felt this lump slide out of me it was quite big I then realised I passed it down the toilet.
The pain continued for another 6 hours, the bleeding was heavy and very uncomfortable and the pains didn't settle down at all and I was still suffering the next day.
I would never chose this option again, to be left to pass a baby down the toilet
I wasn't comfortable with it at all and the pain levels were like full blown labour.
