Two questions Jasify Due September 2; 2 kids; South Carolina 31243 posts

I have two questions.



1. What would you recommend, the abortion pill or the surgical procedure?



2. How long is the healing/recovering period? I mean, how long should one stay home from work to fully heal?



Thanks. :)

It'd depend on how far along the person is. The pill only works until 8 weeks, I believe. After that, the only option is surgical.



I can't say for certain the recovering period but I've seen some people return to work the day of one and others take a few days off (i.e. do it over a weekend)

I have heard many women prefer the surgical because it is quick and sedation makes the procedure itself painless. With the pill though you can go through it in the privacy of your own home. There are pro's and con's to both. Good luck on your decision!

If you're worried about missing work I'd probably go with the surgical one since it's only one visit and less bleeding afterward.

It's a two pill method that "forces" your body to miscarry. It's a longer process than the surgical but as I stated before it is carried out in the comfort of your own home.

It makes your body shed the lining of your uterus taking anything attached to it with it.

I think I'd prefer to not be out of it or hazy. I was out for a few days just having my wisdom teeth removed.

That makes me feel better. Thanks. :)

I don't even for sure know if I'm pregnant. I thought my period started last week, but I only bled for a day and it was very very light. All the tests say negative but I'm going in for a blood test on Wednesday. I'm usually very regular. Blah.

I was leaning more toward the pill but I don't want to be sick from it. I've taken Plan B and I felt like I had the flu.

I reccomend the pill.



Im actually still in the process of my "medical abortion". It wasnt as painful as wome people told me and the pain meds made it very bearable. I liked it because i was able to do it at home and it was more private. But it depends on the person, some people rathernthe surgical.



Goodluck on whatever decision you do make, of you need any info or anything im an open book so PM me whenever : )



Oh and i stayed out of work for two days.
