Ten days ago I had a medical termination at 8 and a half weeks pregnant.
Medical termination of pregnancy is a difficult thing to go through and you are very aware of what is happening to you. I think you should have had counselling to think through your decision and to explain exactly what happens in a medical and surgical termination. The procedures do also vary from area to area as some women wait 2 days for the second stage, while others have it later on the same day. I am sad that you did not have the time and support that you needed to really explore your decision with someone independent. If you would like to speak to a trained advisor and get some help and support please phone the national helpline 0300 4000 999. I am sure there is a way for you to work through the grief and loss you are feeling.
