I am due to have an abortion next week. I just wanted to ask a couple of questions.

How long will it take for my body to recover and get back to pre pregnancy.

Also can i take the 2nd lot of tablets at home?

Please dont be judgemental as i am going through this alone.

Thank you. Well i have had the abortion today and it was not as bad as i thought it would be. I was admitted in the morning and the nurse told me everything that was going to happen, she gave me the tablets and said with in an hour i will start with tummy cramps and i did, it took a while before i started bleeding but as soon as i did i passes the clot which wasnt has painful as i thought it would be, after half an hour i was allowed to go home. Now i am at home and everything seems fine so far.

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.

Trust me when I say I was back at work 4 days after having it. This was the EMA early medical abortion mind you. Involving the pill taking. I told work I had a stomach virus and would probably be off a few days. the pain lasts about two days, the bleeding lasts about 6 days! I had to go back to the clinic to get my second lot of pills but you can ask when you get there. Please try not to go through this alone, there must be someone you can go with, parent, friend, sister? It makes it so much easier! Also don't listen to these idiots, do what is best for you. All the best x

i did it last month by pill and my body is still recovering. and yes you can take the 2nd lot at home. and get plenty of rest and make sure to take it easy.

Usually like 4 weeks to 6 weeks and i belive you can take them at home, and there's a story behind us all i'm not here to judge
