I didn’t really know what to expect when I had an abortion at home during covid. I didn’t panic but there were a few moments where I was just not quite sure what to expect and because I didn’t know anyone else that had had an abortion at the time. The best thing is not to panic and to call the helpline if you are worried about anything. I thought the pregnancy had passed straight away but then about three days after that I went to the loo and I was bleeding quite a lot and I passed the actual pregnancy, because I hadn’t realised I hadn’t passed it earlier. I was completely not prepared for this and no-one had said it might feel like it’s all gone but then actually a few days later that might happen. And then I rang them and they said oh yeah, that’s normal. So the thing to do is just keep in touch with the clinic.
