I had an surgical abortion august 31, 2021 and the procedure was fast and not as bad as people think it is. I rate the pain a 5. It was so quick, I couldn’t really feel anything and I did it without sedation. I didn’t need it for a 5 minute surgery.

I felt fine after I had a lil bleeding and cramps, but it wasn’t that bad. My cramps were a 6. It was the hardest day of my life yesterday, but I knew I had to get it done.

I will be getting a copy of my ultrasound in the mail of my angel baby. I wasn’t able to care or have time for my child because I knew my life is hard enough with 3 kids, and another would have been even harder.

My angel is now in heaven and I will always remember him/her, but I would recommend the surgery abortion. It’s more effective than the pill. I’m glad I went with this the surgery.

You deserve nonjudgmental
