After a termination a couple of months ago I really feel I now need the scan photo

I'm only 16 years of age but I had a termination in February of this year.

I know it's been a couple months on now but thinking about it I would really like my scan photo which I had done at the clinic when I received my treatment.

Is this possible because they did do a scan before I had the termination is it too late to get the scan photo now?

I feel like I really need it.

Editor's comment

I am not sure how long the records of scans are kept. You would need to contact the scan unit at the hospital where you had the termination and ask if they still have your records. I can understand your feelings about having something concrete as a memory. Sometimes a scan picture can help you to grieve the loss of a pregnancy if you are feeling sadness and regret.
