I did the first round of pills (Mifeprex) Friday, July 20th, and the second set of pills Sunday, the 22nd. My experience has been moderate. I didnt bleed until after the second set of pills and although it was pretty intense on Sunday, it has already let up a lot. As far as side effects, I had a little bit of nausea and and lot of cramping, but again that has all subsided. Emotionally, I feel comfortable with my decision so far. I had a little melt down after I left the clinic; I felt like "last week I was pregnant and had options, next week I wont be pregnant and there is no going back." Overall, I think I did what I needed to do at this time. I would love to add to our family the right way when we can financially and emotionally support another child.
The worst part is that we just paid 200 dollars a few months ago to have the Implanon implant put in my arm so we didnt have to be put in the position to make that kind of decision. But the practitioner made a mistake and put the implant too deep and it was not effective. So not only am i upset that we had to make this choice, but im upset that i really thought we were being responsible and taking the proper steps to prevent this. Back to the drawing board! We dont want any more surprises.
I've heard bad things about implanon. My mom had a friend who had it move around in her arm. That is why I'm getting the mini pill once LO is born. I've been in a situation very similar. I never thought I'd have to make the decision either but I know it was right one at the time. It is so much better to decide really early on like you did which happens to be what I also did.
