I think im pregnant I haven taken a test but I really can't have a baby it will ruin my life, and I can't have an abortion because my parents will find?

I think im pregnant I haven taken a test but I really can't have a baby it will ruin my life, and I can't have an abortion because my parents will find?

Take a Deep Breath: Panic seems to creeping into your space. First, take a pregnancy test. Then, be prepared to own up to your life. Whatever, fallout there may be to deal with now, will not come close to the burden of a secret. Counselors at places like planned parenthood (1-800-230-plan) or at a local teen/adolescent clinic will help you confidentially decide how to go forward. ...Read more

I don't know what to do after an abortion?

I don't know what to do after an abortion?

Depends: For several days be alert for pain and bleeding. Infection is uncommon but can occur. After that your body will usually normalize. Abortion is psychologically stressful (so is pregnancy) and a good support system is helpful. It is also a good time to evaluate why you got in a situation requiring abortion so you can prevent it in the future. ...Read more

Is it possible you won't be able to have children after just one abortion?

Is it possible you won't be able to have children after just one abortion?

Maybe, maybe not: This really depends on the type of termination and the reaction of your body to the procedure. I am aware of one industrialized country I traveled to years ago that use terminations as their main form of birth control, even after the pill was readily available. Most went on to have kids later. ...Read more

I need home abortion if there's a way, because I can't get the medicine! I'm still in my 6 weeks?

I need home abortion if there's a way, because I can't get the medicine! I'm still in my 6 weeks?

Doctor can evaluate: The medicine is by prescription, so a woman goes to her Ob-Gyn doctor (or a women's clinic) to be evaluated for it. Whether or not medicine can be used also depends on the age of the baby fetus (the number of weeks pregnant). The doctor will talk with the patient to be sure that the patient is making a good permanent decision, because abortion is a hard decision for any woman to make. ...Read more

Instructions: The doctor who gave you the pills would have given you instructions. Call the office if you need clarification. Some doctors would like you to repeat the medicine after 24 hours and then do surgery if nothing happens, while others may forego the second dose and schedule you for surgical termination. Best of luck. ...Read more

Red flag: Do you mean 4 weeks from when you should have gotten your period, or 4 weeks from the first day of your last period? Either way you can induce a termination using hormones - Planned Parenthood can help you with that. There is a bigger problem here though - 3 in a 9 month period. This is not good to do to your body. It's really stressful for your mind too. Ask about getting an IUD. Low-maintenance. ...Read more

I had a medical abortion on January 03 I was suppose to follow up within 2 weeks but couldn’t make it. I was wondering is the follow up really important?

Med Ab/followup: Followup for a med ab is important if still bleeding, or if the testing of the material did not indicate that the termination was complete. Check with the provider who performed the procedure, as it may still be appropriate for a f/u appointment. ...Read more

What happens if you don't follow thru on a check up after an abortion?

Maybe infertility: The reasons for a check up after an abortion are to make sure that you don't have an infection and that all the pregnancy tissue is gone. If you took your antibiotics, didn't have any significant pain, prolonged bleeding or fever and a urine pregnancy test is negative after 2-3 weeks, you may be ok to skip your follow-up. But make sure you're using birth control if you don't want to be pregnant. ...Read more
