My at-home abortion with MSI Reproductive Choices UK

“If you’re worried if this is the right decision for you, then I couldn’t recommend MSI more.”

An MSI client talks about her positive experience of having a medical abortion with MSI.

I found out I was pregnant with my long term partner a few weeks before starting my final year of university.

We agreed it wasn’t the right time and that we knew our best option was abortion to provide a better life for our future kids.

I had an appointment at the clinic in Brighton and found out I was actually further along, being 9 weeks and 4 days pregnant.

The experience during the appointment was incredible. The support, kindness and the fact that there was absolutely no judgement made the process so much easier.

MSI UK nurse talking about how to take abortion pills.

I proceeded to take the pills at home with my partner. The first pill caused mild cramping and light bleeding and with the second pills I was cramping and in pain almost 30 minutes after taking them. I’d definitely suggest taking the pain medication that they recommend. I passed the pregnancy within 6 hours and on the 3rd day I’m not in any pain but just bleeding like a regular period.

If you’re worried if this is the right decision for you, then I couldn’t recommend MSI more.
