A medical abortion at 28By anonymous on 30/10/2011
I am 28 years old and already have 2 children from a previous relationship. When I met a new partner he told me he could not have children, however I still remained on the pill.
Three months past and I was 4 days late and just knew I was pregnant. I was so anti-abortion before this! I had mixed feelings whether I should keep the baby and being a single mum of two I knew I could cope.....however I was in my final year at university.
I spoke to my partner and he made it clear he did not want the baby.So I booked a doctor's appointment and before it became clear I was due to have the abortion pill. My belly was growing bigger and I could not help but lay there at night rubbing and speaking to my stomach. The staff were lovely and so helpful and not judgemental. I took the first pill and felt nothing, I returned the next day and took the next set of tablets.
The next day was horrible! I can only describle it as a nightmare. I felt so ill but the worse part (as horrific as it sounds) was sitting on the toilet crying and a large lump fell out of me! I was in tears! I had hardly any support from my partner and was too ashamed to tell anyone! 8 months on I sit here and feel so upset about what I did, I don't think I will ever get over it and it haunts me everyday!
