"Really positive visit"

About: Marie Stopes International Essex Centre

I visited the Mary Stopes clinic in Essex to get the suction operation, initially chose general anaesthetic but was told on the day they had none so i would be sedated (not really sure of the difference) my appointment was 8.30am and left the clinic about 11.30. The staff were extremely friendly and made me feel really at ease. The facilities were extremely clean and you were given as much time to recover as you needed. I would highly recommend this clinic. Only down side was I felt like I was being forced to choose a form of contraception which they would input whilst i was sedated which I was not ready for, so they gave me the pill incase I wanted to take it. Overall really great visit
