I had a medical abortion in October.
At about 8pm I had a shower as I thought the end had come. But then half an hour later, it all began again. The nurse phoned to see how I was getting on and she seemed happy with the progress. The next day I was tired and emotional but however was very glad the whole thing was over. I went back to the hospital two weeks later for another scan. She said she could see a mass in my womb. She didn’t seem that bothered by it and I kind of left feeling unsure of what to do next. She did say that it would come away itself but she was unsure when. It came away two weeks later which was a bit weird.
Editor’s note: Thanks for sharing your story with us…As with other women, you seem preoccupied with the procedure and how it affected you physically. You didn’t have a very straightforward time but felt the pain side of it was at least manageable. I wonder how well you are doing emotionally now. Perhaps if your partner is still away, you might be feeling the need to connect with someone about your experience. If you would like to offload a little to someone, you can call the helpline to talk it through or visit your nearest centre for some support.
