Hello! I wanted to share with you all part of my testimony for those of you looking for help like I was a few months ago. safe2choose is an organization very important in my life because they helped when I most needed it, during a time of lots of anguish and uncertainty. I looked for information on the internet about abortion. Here in my country it is criminalized. I found someone online who would sell me pills, but the procedure was wrong and I was afraid to do it they way they told me to. I spent so much money on these pills that I bought, but I did not want to settle for this option and I could not do the abortion. A few days later, without even looking, safe2choose popped up in my social network page. I had never heard of them before. I cannot deny that in the beginning I did not trust that it was real because there are so many fake pages out there, but I wrote them in the chat. I can tell you that they were so kind and understanding, always treating me with respect, answering all my questions and listening to all my fears and feelings about what I was going through. I told them I had bought pills and explained the procedure the person gave me. They told me that it was not the most effective way to use the pills nor the correct amount of pills to use. I decided to place an order with safe2choose and they didn’t charge me as they knew I already spent all my money. I couldn’t believe it at first. The package was sent and I waited and waited. Then it arrived and I was able to do the procedure with the pills. Everything went well, I did it exactly how they told me to. I took the first pill, Mifepristone in the afternoon. That night a I felt some cramps as if my period was coming and I went to sleep. In the morning I woke up and had a little bit of bleeding. That evening I took 800mg of Ibuprofen and 30 minutes later I put the 4 pills of Misoprostol underneath my tongue for 30 minutes. I went to my bed to lay down and I barely had pain because of the Ibuprofen. The next day I woke up and expelled 3 large blood clots and continued to bleed that day like my normal period. I bleed for about one week. I didn’t need to go to the hospital and I had no complications. Although I did this alone because I had no other choice, I recommend doing it with someone in case you were to need help. I want to tell you all that safe2choose is real, and they can support you as they supported me. Don’t be afraid! safe2choose is a great organization.
