It was quick, painless and over in a minute, I was able to do the school run within half an hour

I just want to share my story of having a termination under local anaesthetic.

I was 10 weeks and 4 days when I had it done. It was quick, painless and over in a minute. I have no pain now and was able to do the school run within half an hour of it being completed. I feel absoloutly fine now and am hardly bleeding.

I would recommend this done as a quick way of termination, I couldn't sit around for hours waiting for pills to work or have a general and feel dreadful afterwards.
