An abortion at 15

I'm seventeen, I had an abortion at fifteen! now I'm settling down with my boyfriend of 18 months who is 22.
All I can think about is having another baby! I thought I did right by having an abortion at 15 but now I'm with my partner it's all I can think about. Having a baby feels so right but I'm just not sure. My boyfriend said that he would love a baby! I really have no idea what to do :/

Editor's Comment

It would be good to talk this through with someone outside your situation. It's quite common to long for another baby after an abortion, but important that you don't end up in the same situation feeling that you can't look after a baby. If you and your boyfriend would like to talk this through with a pregnancy advisor you can contact someone as follows. Call the national helpline 0300 4000 999, log on to Online advisor, or follow the link to find a centre for post abortion support in your area.
