I'm booked into getting a surgical abortion.

I'm 18 years old and I found I was pregnant a month ago and at first I wanted to keep it but then I thought of having an abortion because my home life ain't good. So I looked into getting one, now I'm booked into getting a surgical abortion as I'm 10 weeks. I'm so scared cause I got no one to talk to about it and no one to go with to the clinic, I feel so alone.

Editor's Comment

If you want to talk to someone about your decision, what to expect, or support after an abortion, there is a national helpline 0300 4000 999. It is difficult to go through a procedure like this alone, especially when you have changed your mind about the decision. Remember that you can always speak on the helpline each day.
