Following sequence is a physical study of abortion at 13 to 15 weeks of gestation by oral medications. I do not recommend abortion nor vouch for it but my very close friend went though the procedure and I supported her by noting down the process for anyone to whom it may help. Always have help available, a parent or a friend close by and your Phone set to dial 911 at any phase of help through out the procedure. If you feel anything different in extremity during the process which is not similar to below narrated pains/discomfort/bleeding, or any irregularities, is when you need to call for help. Your life is more important than anything else. You will tomorrow help others in need.
Mifepristone disconnects the placenta. This is the stage your decision has to be made to reason both yourself and your partner if this is what you realy need. If there is no other way, ie- in some countries abortion is considered a crime. But during the conversation with my friend, I came to understand that it is worse to not be able to abort. To have to face a community of ethics politics and disgust, to lose opportunities, to lose family and loved ones. We certainly cant judge the levels of human error but living means solving them. According to clinical test reports on the Web, this is the safest method for periods 1 to 15weeks. 94% of studies shows success without complications.
I am freaking out just to get a grip on myself having to support her by means of little conversations if that helps at all. I am posting this with her permission without names.
This is for educational purposes for those without the luxury or security to have assistance and for whichever reason they may go through the process, as a guideline on what to expect and how to administer. There are clinical testing reports on the Web but nothing along the lines of the patients information and the process during these long hours. So I hope this helped some one.
Administration sequence and after effects.
2 days back (48 hours prior to proceeding with misoprostol. 1 tablet mifepristone of 200mlg was taken by mouth with water. Just gulped.
The kit came with 1 tablet mifepristone and 4 tablets misoprostol. This is the dosage for the subjected period of gestation. The lesser the gestation period, the lesser the Misoprostol. The mifepristone is a must.
8.40pm (start of misoprostol)
4 tablets each 50mlg MISOPROSTOL taken under the tongue. Total 200mlg. The tablets have to be kept under the tongue till they melt completely through the process.
8.45pm (5 mins later)
Gum feels little numb and pill tastes minty bitter. In a bad way. Melting slowly and swallowing the melts.
8.54pm (14 mins later)
Body feels chilly. Shivers. No change in body temperature and tummy feels heavy.
9.10pm (30 mins later)
Stomach feels tight. 30 mins up.
Half of the tablet has shrunk.
9.17pm (37 mins later)
Shivers. An increase in stomach tightness.
9.44pm (1hr 4mins later)
On and off shivers little bit more extreme. Body temp at 36.9.
10.50pm. (2hr 10mins later)
Vomited. 2 hours After initial doze. According to web pages which I read during the process, if vomited within an hour of swallong the tablet then the patient may need additional 2 tablets of misopristone administered under the tongue again.
11.00pm (2hr 20mins later)
Back pains and slow contractions started.
11.11pm (2hr 31mins later)
Body temperature at 37.5. Continued contractions and pain.
11.19pm (2hr 39mins later)
lose motion, stomach getting empty.
11.36pm (2hr 56mins later)
Body temperature 37.3 increase in contraction. Slight bleeding started. As expected within 2 to 3 hrs of administration. If periods dont start in the first 3 to 4 hrs of the first 200mlg dose then patient has to administer additional 50mlg (2 tablets) of misopristone under the tongue again.
11.47pm (3hr 7mins later)
Contractions have come stronger and more frequent. 5thq
12.39am (3hr 59mins later)
Body temperature 37.6 pains continuous occurring.
12.45am (4hr 5mins later)
Feeling like going to put out poop. But embroyo came out. Umbilical cord still inside with placenta. Additional 3 to 5 minutes pushed out the placenta and cord with light bleeding. The tablets induce the pushes. Body temperature maintains at same level.
1.05am (4hr 25mins later)
Poop feeling again. This time poop only. Heavy bleeding is expected for 2 to 3 days. So have a stock of thick pads and keep changing at regular intervals like every 3 hrs or 2.this will help monitor the amount of bleeding and changes.
My thoughts and how she is:
Patient is doing well past 4 days. Periods ongoing but no heavy bleeding of concern (regular and on off). I am very happy she passed the phase without further complications. For any discomfort after 3 to 4 days, take a scan. Use honey morning and night for internal healing. According to articles I read, antibiotics are not required after this process and best if body takes to healing naturally. Therefore, focus on nutrition. Good foods and liquids as much as possible.
