I am 5 weeks pregnant, and I am terminating my pregnancy with the early option pill. Ever since I missed my period a month ago I have been very bloated, all over, and my breasts are sore of course. But can anyone please tell me if this retention will pass in a couple of weeks after the termination, when the hormones are back to normal? I am probably 10 pounds overweight right now! I assume when I start bleeding I should be losing some pounds??

Please try not to be judgemental when answering to my email. Focus on my question, and not on your opinions.

Thank you

I suggest you take this into the abortion forum. The people on here want nothing more than to have children, and reading this will just upset them.

Hey, I guess i'm not totally sure what you're asking - if you'll lose weight after having the abortion? I couldn't discern from your question if you were overweight before the pregnancy, or gained weight since finding out. I'd assume the former, because it'd be pretty much impossible to gain 10 pounds at only 5 weeks. Maybe what you mean is will the bloating go down? The sore breasts? Yes. Those are pregnancy symptoms, and you'll soon no longer be pregnant. Physically, you should feel back to normal after the abortion. Just keep in mind it can take up to 8 weeks to get your period afterwards. Good luck to you.

your hormone levels could be producing the bloating and water retention. This is common. After the abortion, your hormones should level out as your body works through them. A good thing to try afterwards is cranberry juice which naturally reduces bloating and especially water retention.

If you are very worried, this should be one of the questions that you ask your doctor where ever the abortion is performed. They will have much more information than I do.

Best of luck and keep us posted on how you're feeling.
Peace,
jenn

Hey mominnj,

i about the same as you, 4/5 weeks gone so i'm told. Feel like crap at the moment. Sick all day and dairy food is a no go area a of this morning!! I'm starting to bloat too and really conscious of it.
I have to wait another two weeks before I can get the early option pill as I have to travel to uk to get it, it's still illegal in ireland for abortions.

Let me know how you get on.

Best of luck.

Thank You!
Ladies -- many thanks to all of you who helped me with your answers.
I took the abortion pill on 5/5 and I have been bleeding for 2 weeks straight. It was not as bad as I anticipated - the first night was the worst.
I went back to the clinic for my follow-up, and all is clear.
I feel much more relaxed now.

To those few imbeciles who insulted me, sorry for your ignorance: it is truly a sad thing. Enough said.

The abortion pill is stupid. Just get the actual surgical procedure, its less of a mess and the bleeding doesnt even last that long. I had an abortion today and I already feel like I can go out. With the pill you'll be stuck in the house for days bleeding like a maniac and cramping.

She already had her abortion, and for some women the pill method is better..But honestly I always recommend the surgical to anyone.

But the pain and the look on her face when she went in the operating room for the 10 min procedure after inserting the pills in her ... was heart breaking ..we did it alone .no body knew ...and thank god it went well..i still love her so much and she handled herself so well. she was having some period problems afterwards but the doctor gave some pills.. But really people who are afraid and want to abort in 5 to 10 weeks time...dont worry ... go to the doctor ...its a vey easy procedure ..but not happy procedure ...and every thing gets allright ,,,, this is my first hand experience ..... dont get afraid ......

u should go with what ur heart tels u,and if everyday u wake up the the answer is the same then that is what u should do.
i woke up everyday with my heart telin me i should keep this gift from GOD, he wants me to hav it, so i decided to keep it
but howeva my first time was different, just like urs, i knew it would hav messed things up and made my life difficult, like i said im not sorry , i married a great guy in the end and im overseas livin a great life. its a terrible thing to do but after all we are only human , we make mistakes, and hopefully we'll learn from them in the future.
hope my story helps
ps . i learnt my lesson and only fel prego again becos we jumped from 3 different countries in one month so i could find my bc pills, my cycle got messed up
one of those things, i believe if it was meant to happen its becos there was a reason for it!
