i found out i was 8 weeks pregnant and went to planned parenthood 10/8. i took a pill for the abortion there. they then gave me 3 sets of pills, one for nausea, one for antibiotics, and one for the actual abortion process. i got pain pills too (hydrocodone 5 mg) from the doctor.
after i took the abortion pills at home, it was the worst pain of my life. the pain pills i got didnt help at all. and when the pain stopped, i was so happy and relieved.
however, starting about a few days ago, i have been having terrible pain.
i have sharp pains in my stomach, it hurts to get up and do anything, and i have horrible cramping. its almost like a menstral period, however the pain is really unbearable. i had to work today and just had the heating pad on my stomach crying, it hurt that bad.
i feel that something may be wrong with me. i am worried and do not have my appointment for a follow-up until 10/23.
is it possible the abortion didn't work?
i thought i was supposed to feel better by now, not worse.
If you have not fully aborted there are several complications that need to be addressed immediately to protect not only your health but your ability to have future children. Do not wait any longer. Go to the emergency room now, today. [ adviceman49's advice column | Ask adviceman49 A Question ]

There is no need to wait until your follow up appointment. You are in pain and worried about what might have happened. If you can't see your doctor, make an appointment with another. You should really get checked out! [ S_C's advice column | Ask S_C A Question ]
