What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

Somehow this whole process changed my mind and made me realize that I would like to be a mother at some point, but definitely not right now, so I do feel relieved about being so fortunate to have this experience be as safe and as comfortable as it was. I’m definitely lucky. It definitely could have been worse.

How did you do the abortion?

Surprisingly fine. I expected it to be excruciating and intolerable, but it ended up being just extremely painful. My boyfriend and I rented a hotel room for 2 days and stocked up on pain medicine, food, tea and sanitary pads. He was very helpful and supportive. I put a hot water bottle on my stomach and we slept through the pain. When we were awake we binge watched TV shows. After the sac was passed, I bled for like 2 or 3 weeks maybe, I would get cramps and have to use pain medicine. The doctor prescribed another medicine after the abortion ended in order to empty my uterus. This medicine caused leg cramps that somehow still exist till now. I’m now on my first period after the abortion.

What was your situation at this time?

I’m not married to my boyfriend so it’s impossible to have a child in my country. We were only 7 months into the relationship when we had to deal with that. And even if we were married, it’s still too early in our lives and careers to be parents.

ඔබේ ගබ්සාව නීති විරෝධී වීම ඔබේ හැඟීම්වලට බලපෑවාද?

It made me really scared and worried about which gynecologist to visit. I had to ask around a lot of people. The day we visited the gynecologist for the first time i was shaking and out of breath. But it went well thankfully.

ඔබේ ගබ්සාවට අනෙක් අය ප්‍රතිචාර දැක්වූයේ කෙසේද?

Only 2 people + my boyfriend know. They were all very supportive thankfully.
