A medical abortion in April 2011By anonymous on 15/01/2012
I am 19 years old, and had an abortion last year (2011) in April when I was 18. It was the worst thing I have ever done. At the time I was seeing someone and even though I knew it was stupid we had unprotected sex a couple of times. I kept thinking that I needed to go on the pill but never got round to it. When I was a week late for my period I knew that I was pregnant. I can't explain how, I just knew through a feeling I had inside me. At first it didn't really bother me, I thought that if I didn't think about it, it would go away but then I knew I should do a pregnancy test to be absolutely sure. There was a girl from work who I got on well with but hadn't known for long, she was so easy to talk to. It was easier telling her than anyone else. She was really understanding and came with me to buy the tests and then waited with me whilst I took one. Buying the tests was horrible. I remember going through the self-service section of the supermarket just so it limited the number of people seeing me buy a pregnancy test. I felt so ashamed. We then went for some lunch and to the toilet after. I sat there so nervous trying to wee, but couldn't, I waited there for ages and eventually I did. My friend was waiting outside and asked if I was okay. I said yes.
