if shes still on the first day then they can last through the morning, every one has different experiences. remind her to keep drinking water, water always seems to help with anything. i cant say that everythings ok but i had the pill just on saturday and its wednesday and im still getting mild cramps, and trying to figure out of this is normal. will let you know once i find out!
i had the worst cramps ever! it started about 40 minutes after- it was really intense cramps- i kept yelling and screaming at my fiance lol- but the really bad cramps went away after about 8 hours. then it was just mild cramps for the next two or three days.
the best thing while having the really intense cramps after taking the cytotec is to just try and keep her relaxed- lots of water and whatever beverage she really likes(by giving her something she likes it'll help calm her down, i love the yellow gatorade lol so i drank over a gallon of it haha) just keep her comfortable and have her lay down but keep her knnes bent up, that helped to take away some of the pain and pressure for me, take tylenol 3 (if they gave u a prescription) if not just take reg. tylenol, make sure she takes the promethasine, my cramps got so bad that i kept throwing up, try to make her comfortable so that she sleeps a little, and when the major cramps go away make sure she eats something light (once again something that she likes will help her mentally feel better- i ate a whole container of sherbert lol)
o and the reason the cramps are that bad after taking the second pill is because her cervix is dilating in order to expell the pregnancy.
i hope you found this useful.
and like i said to sarbear0000 on another post- bleeding can last for up to three weeks after- and my mild cramps stopped after three or four days.
best of luck.
its now been 6 days since my second stage of abortion and I'm experiencing really bad cramps, I've been doubled over in pain today. the pain has been away the last few days and i thought the worst was over but today the cramps came back with a vengeance. i had sex 2 nights ago (against my better judgement) and I'm wondering if this has an effect, although yesterday i was fine! i'm really worried and ready to make an appointment with my doctor but if anyone has any useful advise, i'd be really grateful
I took the pill 4 days ago, when i took the first pill, i felt nothing, then i inserted the 4 pills, and i started to feel the cramps about 15 minutes later. Then after about a half hour to an hour, i was in so much pain, every 10 seconds i got the worst pain of my life, and ive had a baby before, and this pain was way worse than having a baby, and even after having her, this pain was worse. no matter how many pain pills i took, nothing would make it go away. This lasted for about 1 or 2 hours.
Now, its 4 days later, im still having really bad cramps, only when i stand up, when im laying down, its not too bad, but i really didnt bleed as much as i thought, but i was only 3 weeks in.
I have my appointment to get the pills and start the process started at 11am this coming Saturday. I'm a CNA for a geriatric patient and have a 10 hour case on Sunday; will I still be in really bad pain on Sunday? She isn't hard and I'm sitting most of the day.
right ladies im a lad and my girlfriend has recently taken the second abortion pill about 2 hours ago she wont move off the toilet and im really worried do i ring an ambulance ANY ADVICE IS GREAT!! ASAP please.
Just got done with my 2nd day! All I have to say is WOW. I was explained very well on each pill and decent time frames as well. One main thing of advise is to get thy Tylenol 3 prescription and take the ibuprofen! I took the ibuprofen but did not go fill out the Tylenol prescription because I have a decent pain tolerance and to be honest stopping somewhere else and waiting for it to be filled was the last thing I wanted to do. After taking the pills that induce contractions I immediately regretted not taking the Tylenol. Best thing to do is to try to relax even sleep through it if you can.. I spent my time in 5 minute hot baths (no soap!!), laying bundled up in the fetal position on the floor (it hurts!) and went to the toilet a few times. After about 6 hours of that it finally passed through (tmi to tell you how I know that) and the cramping and blood flow slowed immediately.. Now only to expect mild to moderate cramping and blood flow for the next few days. However if you feel the cramps are too bad or it's just not getting better after a day planned parenthood actually has 24 hour emergency lines to call and ask any questions about it that way you have a better idea of what's going on. Good luck and stay comfortable!
I had my 2nd dose of pills today morning and since then the cramps have been killing me.also my stomach is a little bit upset.lol..iv been running to the washroom every 20mins.help needed with the cramps!!what do i do??
Abortion pill - PAINFUL BUT IT'S OVER AFTER A FEW HOURS
Abortion pill - PAINFUL BUT IT'S OVER AFTER A FEW HOURS
Unfortunately I had to have an abortion today/yesterday. I went in yesterday to take the initial pill orally. They warned me I may feel sick or headache-y with mild cramps, and if I threw up within an hr and a half I would have to go back and take another one. I was absolutely fine!
This morning I went in for the insertion of the 4 small tablets vaginally. This is totally fine and painless (like putting in a tampon) and you can do it on your own in the privacy of a bathroom (at the clinic). They warned me they would be absorbed within 20 mins and the cramps within a 1.5hrs. This happened for me within 45 mins. Light bleeding and a dull but quite sore abdonimal pain. Within the first hour the bad cramps did start (the constant dull pain plus a sharp pain that lasted a minute or two but every 5-10mins). This soounds awful and yes it did last for 3ish hrs BUT I promise it doesnt last forever! I started on 2 standard painkillers and then after an hr I took 2 Codine (what the clinic gave me and the dosage they told me to take).
I personally found it better for me to sit on the loo for that time. So partners/friends DON'T PANIC if she locks herself in the bathroom for 1+ hours. I did have a bit of an upset tummy and felt a bit sick so it's quite nice to be in the bathroom anyway. I got a bit hot but ironically a warm hot water bottle helps ease the stomach pain. Drink lots of water!
Within 4/5hrs I was okay to wonder around my house but I still relaxed and took it easy. Just a mild pain then. I'm still on day one so I don't know how long the bleeding will last for or the pain that I have left.
Just wanted to say if you do get the chronic pain like I did for up to 3-5hrs DONT PAINC it will go and if you make sure you dose up with the pain relief if will help with the pain. Hope that helps!
I'm about 7 weeks pregnant and I have taken the 2nd pills but after 3 hours I have not started bleeding yet...I have had cramps but only little little spitting with bleeding. Does that mean it didn't work?
