i did..i was 12 weeks i believe? and you can do it up to 20 i *think*. The cramps and whatnot were killer. I passed HUGE clots(which is normal) and I was laid up on the couch literally all day. But the next day i was completely fine not sore or anything

i had a medical abortion. it was a injection that stippes fetal growth, then two days later I had to go back to have pills put on my cervix that made me start bleeding.
My doctor told me to take some pain killer when I got home because cramping would start. But I try to be as natural as possible so I didnt take his advice and went straight to bed for the day. The cramping was not any worse than my period cramps,I passes the tissue after about 2hours. I was 8 weeks a long .

Here you were only allowed to take it up to 8 or 9 weeks. I took it, I would do that again in a heartbeat. GL.

you can take it till 10 weeks. i was 6weeks some days with mine. it hurt bad for about 30 mins, but after all the tissue passed, it eased up and i was able to go to sleep. just make sure you take the pain meds BEFORE your in pain. sitting on the toilet helps too

good luck mama

oh and here in saskatchewan i believe the cut off is ten weeks, aftee that its a surgical abortion. I would assume its simular all across Canada?
any ways, good luck with your decision. Its a very hard one to make. I had my abortion last June if you need someone to chat to you can PM me..

I took the pill when I was 8 weeks along. I passed some huge clots, had some really uncomfortable temperature flashes and pain but was up to normal within 3 days.

I was four weeks four days getation(6 weeks 4days lmp). I chose surgical because I didn't want to risk any tissue left in my uterus,which happens a lot with the abortion pill and can make you really sick.



The doctor numbed my cervix and then used a suction-device to empty my uterus.
It hurt like a b***h but was over very quickly.I bled/spotted for three weeks and went back after six for a follow-up exam.

I did it at 6 weeks. It was very very painful physically and mentally. I would not reccomend it to anyone. I suffered without any pain medication and saw parts of the fetal tissue. There is a high failure rate, I was actually one of them, where the pill didn't work. I bled for 8 weeks after I took the pill. They made me take another one and I had to go thru everything all over again. Very traumatizing. My 2nd abortion (last one) was a surgical one and I was knocked out. Easiet way to do it. It's a little more expensive but sooo much easier.
