    I had a surgical abortion (a D&C) and honestly it wasn't that bad, my nurse was really nice, the anethatist and surgeon where nice, they chatted to me and made me feel comfortable, they were friendly. We even made a few jokes (with me taking the lead). The procedure was quick and I was under twilight sedation, I spent about 30 min awake in recovery before my mum took me home where I felt a bit light headed for an hour or 2. After that I was fine, virtually pain free but some period strength nurofen covered that.

    I just wanted to briefly share my experience as it seems everyone is telling a few horror stories. If I was there for any other reason I would say it was a positive experience, it was a relieving one for me. I chose the surgical option because my my partner was away and I didn't think I could use this drug while breastfeeding (I have recently found out you can) I also wanted it over and done with, I didn't want the drawn out medical option.

    (if anyone now of in the future wants to know where I went please pm me, I'm in WA)

    Do they hand out contraception to underage children? I'm not sure they use the depo shot for menstration issues (it tends to make things worse).
    I will take said hypothetical child to the doctor and come up with something. My child will not be one of those girls that claim to 'accidentally' get pregnant while on the pill.

    The pill is not 100% effective Vicpark -so people actually do get pregnant, doing the right thing, on the pill. It is medical fact.

    I an very happy about the development. I would love it if we were in a world where no one ever needed out wanted an abortion, but we don't. Things happen, life happens, health happens, and another option for women to have more say in the what and how is a wonderful development.

    The mention of counselling from others... people that I know that have had termination by choice have had more counselling offered to them, than I ever did with my two pregnancy losses despite surgical intervention both times. I think all Dr's need to be made aware if the importance of counselling for any one who has to endure any pregnancy loss, be it by choice our otherwise.

    Loving all the Judgey Judgerson comments in this thread. Walk a mile in the other person's shoes...
    Tiger fields. All my love. I was so angry to have the baby still inside me. The waiting was the cruellest form of mental torture I ever had to endure. If I had any choice to move Andy out of my body sooner I'd have jumped at it. Instead I had a d&c about 3-4 weeks after he had passed away.

    I welcome this pill. I also welcome that it's regulated through the tga, and us NOT PBS. I think that even if it does go on the PBS schedule at a later date it will need to be a restricted PBS item. NOT general schedule

    Forgive any weird substitutions... Silly phone, but I still love it

    I am cheekily going to ignore your advice and say my 14 year old won't get pregnant. She will be supervised, and doing things like playing sports. And she will be on fool proof contraception when the time comes
    .

    Oh wow smug much really wow i wonder how many parents have thought and even said that and then found out how young they are going to be grand parents.

    What makes you so 100 percent certain your daughter will tell you a few weeks prior to having sex for the first time, not all kids do regardless of how fabulous there mum is and regardless of how many sports they play. Maybe not at 14 not all are having sex then but 15, 16, 17 it happens way more than you think and if you think that its only un supervised kids that dont play sport then you are sadly mistaken.

    Oh and this fool proof contraception you will put your daughter on please tell me what that is cause short of getting her a hysterectomy or her never having sex nothing is 100 percent effective as far as I am aware.

    I am looking at my 18 month old son whom I conceived whilst having the depovera injections

    Nothing other than abstinence is fool proof!

    I agree. But people also claim they fell pregnant while in contraception whereas a big bunch of the time they weren't using it correctly.

    I think this is a great move for Australia and long overdue.

    The end comments of the article made by the Australian Christian Lobby are disgusting and aren't applicable to women who don't wish to give birth and have a baby.
