Quoting hannah91:" i had an abortion at 9 weeks a few years ago and the pain was horrible. i was just wondering if that's ... [snip!] ... if that's the same pain felt when in labor.. i guess this is a hard question to answer because i can't fully describe the pain."
i had one at 7 weeks. i don't remember it being extremely painful, but they had given me something in advance for the pain. when i was in labor with my daughter (before getting the epidural), it hurt like absolute hell. so... idk if the abortion would have been that painful had i not had drugs... not sure if that helps in answering your question. but labor is painful, no matter what, without drugs.
