I have a medical abortion scheduled on the 24th of this month and I'll be 6 weeks at that time, but I'm going to call and ask if I can reschedule and do it on exactly 5 weeks. I've read a lot of people's experiences with medical abortions and they say it's as painful as child birth, but I'm only 17 and I have no idea what that feels like or if that's going to be true.. Can someone who has been through this explain to me what the pain feels like? I'm really nervous after reading other people's stories. Also, would 5 weeks be less painful than 6 weeks? I'm going to planned parenthood and I have no idea what the procedure is like. Please don't judge me. I had to do the best thing for me and my boyfriends life's. We have no money and I'm still in high school. It wouldn't be the right time to have a child. Thank you.
