What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

How did you do the abortion?

Mixed feelings. Was scared about the pain after hearing a few horror stories. And yes the pain is intense. I found pain medication and a heat pad relieved me slightly. I was 7 weeks when I had my medical abortion. Took the first tablet then 48hours later held he next four under my tounge. Within 30mins I felt really nauses, i felt like I need to vomit but didn't. Then the pain started and went within an hour. Felt like the longest hour ever! I felt comfortable on the bathroom floor I don't know why our how but it was amazing to lie down on the cold tile beside the toilet. The pain was how I would presume contractions would feel. The pain would become extremely painful then stopped for less than a minute then pain again. i began to feel the pain decreasing and was actually able to stand I felt like I needed to push and so I sat on the toilet and a few blood clots came out. I lay down and had a huge blanket round me applied the heat pad onto my tummy so I was comfy set my alarm for the next two tablets which were 4 hours after. Took them and then slept until the next day. I felt like nothing had happened the bleeding was not heavy and I was worried it didn't work. I bled for nearly 2 weeks then it stopped. No longer had pregnancy symptoms and have had a period a month after the abortion. So I does take time. I worried myself thinking it didn't work but I feel great now. And relieved it's over! Anyone that is reading good luck with your experience and just find that inner strength and it will get you through x
