I had a medical termination at 9 weeks on 8th February 07 and every single day I regret it.

I had a medical termination at 9 weeks on 8th February 07 and every single day I regret it. I found out I was pregnant in January and had only been with my boyfriend since November. He wasn’t happy and said if I didn’t have an abortion he'd leave. Because I was in love, I did it. He left anyway and made me deal with it on my own! During the abortion I saw my baby in the bed pan and I see that picture everyday and cry. x x Editor’s note: Thanks for telling us your story…you seem to be in a great deal of pain, not only because you feel betrayed by your boyfriend but also because you have been deeply affected by what you saw. It is all very raw for you, isn’t it? Sadness, anger and regret all mixed together. There is hope for you despite your pain - you need to take one tiny step towards it. Ring the helpline, or your nearest centre or use online advisor to talk to someone who understands and cares.
