2 abortions in a year.
By anonymous on 12/01/2012I was 15 years old. I hadn't gotten my period in 3 months. Me and my friend decided to go get me a pregnancy test. It came out positive.
I told my boyfriend and my mom. My mom understood but would not go for anything but an abortion; my boyfriend's parents were supportive.
I moved in with my boyfriend and had a surgical abortion. It was not a bad experience and I knew it was what we had to do having no jobs no matter how much I wanted to keep it.
Afterwards I was put on a birth control pill, but that did not work for me as I didn't like the effects of the hormones so I stopped it 8 months later.
Now exactly one year later - me being 16 now - I am pregnant again. My mom still understands and everything, but we are still young teenagers and again, cannot raise a baby knowing it will not have a perfect life. I am in the process of getting a medical abortion this time (the pill) and have planned for an IUD after. Luckily this time I was tracking my period and found out earlier rather than 3 months into the pregnancy like the first time around. I am hoping with the help of God this won't happen again.
