Women stories

“I liked the tablets. See, I did not need to stay in the hospital. With curetting I would have spent two days there. I told my mother-in-law I was going to the market. I did not abort at the hospital although I waited for 3 hours. I was scared, would mother-in-law come to know? How many days I bled....  I was going to the toilet every hour to check. See, we don’t have our own toilet. I felt embarrassed. But it happened when she was out. A little pain was there but that much is to be tolerated. Whatever you would have done, pain is always there. Everything has turned out well. I am very happy now. I will definitely use this method again.”  

(From Bela Ganatra’ presentation at ICMA conference, 2004)
