I ended up going with the surgical abortion, and am super nervous. My appt is at 1:00...Im so sad. We really wanted to have a baby, so this is hard on my fiance and I.

im scared too, and feel alone. im going in for the medical/pill soon. i dont know what to think other than fear.

You arent alone. This has been a choice for all sorts of women. Yesterday I was in the clinic with women from all walks of life.

until the nine week mark there is an option for a medical abortion instead of an in-clinic abortion. The only problem I saw with the medical abortion is that it's not always 100%. You do have to return to the clinic and have a check-up to be sure it was effective. In the case that it was not, you MUST recieve an in-clinic abortion. Personally, I did not want to risk going through the process more than once. In-clinic, to me, was the best choice. But everyone has different views and opinions. No matter what you choose, your choice is right.

I had abdominal surgery 3 weeks before my pregnancy occured. I had a tumor on my uterus...my pregnancy is complicating because im not fully healed. Im hemmoraging, and thats why we are doing this. Its the hardest thing ive ever done in my life.

i had and your chances of getting pergnant again are high they have you read a paper before you go in for the procjure and you should recive cousiling my persective anyways. i was a sleep when they did it and my one friend who also had an abortion wasn't i dont remember anything at all other then sounds and dim lighting i perfered it cause i dont want to remember the experiance, hey everything will be allright you'll be fine and i was 7 in a half weeks at 8 weeks you risk become very high for unrecpetiveness later in life but theres always a chance good luck and help is always around the conor

I am making the right choice, no matter what you say about it. This is a decision I made with my doctor, and it is a matter of health.

Despite all their talk about "choice," those at abortion clinics who counsel women on their options often act as if abortion is a woman's only realistic alternative. This simply isn't so.

Throughout the United States, there are nearly 3,000 Crisis Pregnancy Centers staffed by volunteers ready to provide real help to women facing unplanned or untimely pregnancies. [112] In addition to providing pregnancy tests and counseling, these centers often offer a full range of services, helping women obtain housing, maternity and baby clothes, baby equipment, pre- and post-natal medical care, legal assistance and financial support, information about adoption, and even advice on how a woman in school can continue her education. [113] Offering real and tangible assistance, these centers have helped thousands of women to realize that they didn't have to choose between their own lives and the lives of their unborn babies.

Unlike their counterparts at the local abortion clinic, the volunteer counselors at your Crisis Pregnancy Center do not have a vested financial interest in the ultimate decision you make. Their concern and commitment are genuine, so you can count on them to stick by you through the tense and sometimes difficult months ahead.

If you picked up this pamphlet at your local Crisis Pregnancy Center, you already have some idea of the quality of people who work there. But if not, you can look in the Yellow Pages under the heading "Abortion Alternatives," or call, toll-free, 1 (800) 848-LOVE, any time, day or night, to find the nearest Crisis Pregnancy Center in your area. You'll find someone who genuinely cares about what happens to you and your unborn baby.

How do you know what an abortion clinic counsels on, if you've never been to one?

You had a surgical abortion...a medical is pills. I dont want a surgical :(

I had one at 7 weeks and 2 days. I was given a vaginal ultra-sound that in my forms I had chosen not to view, I was sedated and woke up in a recovery room. I had not been allowed to eat 12-ish hours prior, so I was given juice and crackers. I had mild cramping afterwards (which I was given pain killers for, but barely had to take) and some light bleeding. It was less painful or heavy then my regular period.

I hope this information helps. Feel free to PM me.
