My experience with safe2choose was very straight forward. The easiest way to contact them was via their website chat but they responded to my emails as well. If I had to choose again I’d prefer to be in a country, first of all, where abortion is legal and I could have access to a surgical abortion. I hear it is less painful and the bleeding doesn’t last as long. The medical (or pill) abortion quite painful. I took the Misoprostol tablets sublingually in case I needed emergency care and didn’t want the pills to be found in my vagina. I’m not sure if that was the cause but within an hour I was vomiting. If taking them vaginally would have lessened that side effect that would have been better. I had very strong, very painful cramps coming in waves (like birth contractions) for about 4 hours. I took Ibuprofen one hour beforehand which I’m glad I did because had I waited until the pain hit I wouldn’t have been able to keep the Ibuprofen down. Even drinking small sips of water would not stay in my stomach. The dry heaving was worse than the vomiting. I also had a heated pad and my floors are heated as well so I spent a lot of time on them. After 4 hours the cramps subsided, the gestional sac came out about 7 hours later. From there I had bleeding and cramps like normal period for about a week, and minor to no cramps with just spotting for another week. Almost all my pregnancy symptoms were gone within the day and tenderness in my breasts was gone in about a week. I’m so grateful that safe2choose offered this service for such a reasonable price and to a country where I didn’t have any other options. I understand medical abortions through clinics can cost hundreds of dollars, if this were to happen to me again I may just choose safe2choose because it is so cost-effective.
