I never met the doctor. I was told by Planned Parenthood to bring loose fitting clothes. After the procedure, I was cautioned that I could hemorrhage and was explained the signs of infection.
I was in college. My boyfriend drove me from Starkville to Memphis; neither of us said very much on the way there, I just watched the trees as we drove. On the way back I was sick, frightened, cramping and in great emotional pain.
