I had an abortion

2011 Qatar (nato/a a Philippines)

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

i've got mixed emotions about my abortion but as of this writing, i feel relieved and happy that it is over. now my husband and i are considering contraceptives (we were not using any then).

How did you do the abortion?

i had to mentally and physically prepare myself before i did this. i did not go to the gym and did it on a weekend so my husband will be with me. this experience is quite scary when you dont have someone physically there who is quite adept with the procedure. i had to rely on written instructions sent to me via email. i read most of the testimonials and stories for those who had an abortion and this prepared me mentally of what im going to do. i received the packet about 5 days after i ordered online. i had to wait about 4 days for the weekend to come. i took the mifepristone and after 25 hours, i had a slight bleeding. i took the 4 tablets of misoprostol at about that time as well. i felt the chills after 30 minutes while i was cooking (i just had to make myself busy at this time) and felt normal menstrual period pain. what i noticed was i had to force myself to drink water and my mouth or throat seemed like it is blocked - but i was still able to swallow the water, anyway. i dont know if my pain tolerance is high but it is just a normal menstrual period pain (and with a lot of gas)...though, my abdomen is really painful when touched. i took a shower after 5 hours and i saw a small sac and other tissues. i did not notice them when i was changing the pads. i went to sleep a bit early than normal with still slight pain but the pain was gone the next morning. i had bleeding for about 2 weeks...and did a pregnancy test after. i did an ultrasound (overseas) to check if the abortion was complete and no pregnancy tissues were left behind.

What was your situation at this time?

i have two babies with a year apart and after the second one, i thought it was time for myself. i was not ready to have another baby and just about to start looking for a job after being a full time home maker for two years. when i found out that i was pregnant, i knew i will not be ready and happy about it. i researched online and found womenonweb.org. it is a liberating experience to have a reliable organization who could provide this kind of support

L'illegalità del suo aborto ha influenzato i suoi sentimenti?

i think more than the legal aspect of it, the religious conscience is the one quite domineering. i ordered the tablets from womenonweb.org although i went overseas where abortion is legal to have myself checked (ultrasound).

Come hanno reagito le altre persone al suo aborto?

only my husband and sister knew about it.

Do you have children?

What is your religion?
