6 weeks pregnant
Hello. I’m here to share my experiences and I also hope these experiences
will help the women out there who are going through the same circumstances
I found out I was pregnant 5 days after I missed my period. Actually,
before ako mag PT nagtataka na talaga ako kasi nag-spotting ako and I was
cramping for consecutive nights, pero I was hesitant kaya akala ko
magkakaroon ako dahil may cramps ako gabi-gabi.
As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I was devastated. I just started my job and I can’t afford to raise a child with the little income I earn. I felt sad for days, pero
kailangan ko maghanap ng paraan.
I started looking for organizations and research on abortion clinics, medicines, etc.
My partner found an article about underground doctors who help women with this issue.
I had no idea where to find them, then one night, napadaan ako reviews ng isang clinic
and they suggested Project 486. When I went to Project 486’s website, I was relieved and
emailed them right away.
Mabilis din sila mag-reply which I appreciate.
Sir Alex introduced himself and asked me to send photos of my PT along with my patient code.
As soon as na approved na siya, he made me fill out questions, and gave me Sir John’s contact information.
Sobrang accommodating nila, lalo na sa consultation part. Sir John explained
everything and how the medicines work.
After all that, we paid the fees, and they shipped the meds right away.
After receiving the meds,
I waited aweek to do the procedure. May work kasi ako and busy ako masyado kaya nag-settle kami ng partner ko na sa day off ko gawin ang procedure.
Day 1 – Light diet, I can only eat small portions of food. Ayos lang ako sa
part ng intake ng Mife (mifepristone). My symptoms of my pregnancy aren’t extreme so I can
handle not eating much. After taking the Mife, I felt cramping in my stomach.
Day 2 – Light diet again, this time I ate rice. Nag-avoid ako ng rice sa
day 1 and medyo nakukulangan ako sa nakakain ko kaya kumain ako ng kanin na
may sabaw. This time, after taking the Mife, I had a brown discharge. I
asked Sir John about this and sabi niya it is normal and a good sign that
the Mife is working.
Day 3 – I started the procedure (Vaginal Miso) at 8pm. 2:09am dinugo na
ako. Di siya masyadong heavy pero madami na din compared sa normal na
nalalabas na dugo pag nireregla. 3am I had to swallow the remnants of the
Miso without water. Nahirapan lang ako dito kasi mahirap lumunok habang
nakahiga at sobrang dry ng bibig ko. 4:15am dinugo ako ulet pero mas heavy
na, this time may blood clots and white substances na lumabas.
From there dinudugo dugo na ako ng pakonti konti. May blood clots/tissues pa rin na
lumalabas pero sobrang liit. I asked my partner to document them all kasi
sabi ni Sir John baka pieces siya ng POC kaya importante na madocument pa
rin. 5:30, final intake ng Buccal Miso, swallowing the meds without water.
6am passed and wala pa rin lumalabas. Medyo kinabahan nako this time kasi
usually lumalabas na sila after 1st Buccal Miso. Kumain muna ako ng konti,
sumakit tiyan ko kaya natulog muna ako. 8:47am paggising ko may
nararamdaman akong lumalabas, I thought I was defecating kaya pumunta ako
agad sa CR. Inalis ko diaper and pagtingin ko puro dugo and bigger blood
Narealize ko na yung POC na pala yung lumabas. Naghintay pa
rin ako ng confirmation kay Sir John bago maging kampante, finally he
messaged me and said that I am officially not pregnant.
Overall, my experience was normal, thankfully. Cramps after taking the meds
were tolerable (kasing sakit lang ng period cramps ko) so I didn’t suffer
much from it. After all of that, nawala na lahat ng iniisip ko as soon as
na-confirm yung success ng procedure.
I was very happy that I got through all of this with the help of the team of Project 486.
Don’t hesitate to ask for help kasi they will assist throughout the process. Nakakagaan lang
talaga ng loob na may mga taong tulad nila na willing tumulong sa mga nangangailangan.
I am forever thankful to the team, for their efforts and patience, to help the women who are in need of help.
Again, thank you Project 486.
to Sir Alex and Sir John, maraming salamat po.
