I knew I had to do it from the moment I found out.

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

I’m relieved more than anything. I do not want to bring a child in this world without being fully prepared.

How did you do the abortion?

I have been taking combination pills for almost 3 years now, but there were times when I forget to take it. The moment I didn’t bleed after 21 days was the moment I knew I was pregnant. A week later, I started having consistent nausea and tender breasts. I knew I didn’t want to have a child from the start and so I resorted to searching for ways to have natural miscarriage (high dosage of vitamins c, unripe papaya, ginger teas) but none of them worked. By luck, I came across womenonweb and found out that I can have a safe medical abortion in my first trimester. At that time, it has been around 7 weeks after my last period. So I donated right away, and received the package in 9 days. The fear that customs will block its delivery scared me more than the actual procedure. I took the mifepristone the night before that I got it, and took the first 4 misopostrol 22 hours after. I drank 2 panadols 30 mins before 1 took the misopostrol. I felt cramping right after and it gets sharp occasionally. No bleeding, but there was diarrhea. After 3 hours, I took 2 more misopostrol, and 20 mins after I started throwing up, with some of the pills still in my mouth. I bled simultaneously and some clots went out. When I peed, a greyish sac a size of a golf ball came out, but I still have mild cramping and blood clots whenever I pee. It’s been 5 hours as I’m writing this. The breast tenderness is not like before, but I am still feeling a bit nauseous. Don’t be scared. You will get through it.

What was your situation at this time?

ඔබේ ගබ්සාව නීති විරෝධී වීම ඔබේ හැඟීම්වලට බලපෑවාද?

It did. It’s illegal to get pregnant out of wedlock, so I didn’t even get an ultrasound. Waiting for customs to clear the package is the most scary part.

ඔබේ ගබ්සාවට අනෙක් අය ප්‍රතිචාර දැක්වූයේ කෙසේද?

Nobody knew. Just one friend.
