My husband and I have a son together who is still an infant and we are still young and figuring our lives out. We found out I was pregnant unexpectedly and chose a medical abortion because we knew we only wanted one child for now and did not want to put ourselves or our son into debt.

We both felt it was too difficult to raise another baby almost immediately. I was so nervous that I would be in such bad pain however I was lucky; I think I slept through the worst of it. After taking the pills, I started bleeding immediately but felt sick so I slept and when I woke up I had no cramping. It’s a long experience by doing the medical abortion versus surgical but I feel it was the best choice for me and my husband. The clinic I went to was super supportive and non-judgmental. I’m currently going through the aftermath of my medical abortion and although I’m tired, I feel a bit relieved for me and my family.
