I've known people who have done that...and no, she won't be able to work on Sunday if it kicks in on Saturday...



I forget the protocol, but it wasn't a walk through the park.

My friend just recently had one via pill. She said it was a lot of cramping and bleeding, obviously. She was back to work, I want to say, three or so days later.

No, it's not just something that happens in an hour or two. I highly doubt she'll be able to do much of anything the next day.



Is there a reason she's getting the pill instead of the suction done? I've heard the pill is far worse.

I had a surgical but I looked into the pill and was advised it is different for everyone but it can cause severe cramping, nausea, vomiting and headaches etc, and they can start within 15 mins of taking the pill. If I were her, I would book off work just in case, and she is going to bleeding pretty heavily even if she doesn

I did the pill and wasn't able to go back till 3 days later. Cramping and the bleeding...but they will prescribe pain meds for the pain.

I've never had an abortion but I did have a D&C done. My girlfriend however did the pill & said it was horrible & very tramatizing, she was in horrible pain & everything came out all over the shower floor. (atleast thats what she told me) Everyones different though & has different feelings. She should definitely do whats right for her. I hope everything goes smoothly.

I don't remember the pill being that much cheaper. And I definitely don't see how the pill would be less traumatic. You actually have to sit in the bathroom and wait for everything to happen on its own.
