I am 17 and I had a abortion Thursday July 19th 2012
I got pregnant when I was still 16. Me and my boyfriend have been together a year and 4 months now.
I first found out I was pregnant a week after my missed period in April. I was about 6 weeks. Since then I had no idea what I was going to do.
My boyfriend told me we have to get an abortion, we can't look after a child, we're not ready, it will ruin everything, I guess it just didn't sink in, I left it and left it just trying not to think about it everyday.
Eventually telling my boyfriend that I had had it done already. He soon realised and this made everything a lot worse. We argued non-stop throughout when I was pregnant, he would not speak to me and I'd be depressed every night crying.
My boyfriend is clever, he knows when I lie, and I know lying about it was stupid, but he wasn't there for me! I felt like I had no one. At first he didn't seem at all interested and didn't want to even go with me to sort it out.
I lied a second time to him telling him it was sorted, and this was when he actually came with me, and met me afterwards. He realised again and I told him straight, I am scared.. I love kids, ive always loved em, I've always told myself I'm never going to get myself into this situation.
I never thought it would happen to me.When me and my boyfriend finally agreed to get this sorted, I soon realised that I would have to make my mind up quick, as I was 15 weeks & 3 days pregnant, and I even had a bit of a bump, which made it much worse.
Me and my boyfriend were in the centre for about 6-7 hours.
I had a surgical abortion and the pain was horrible.I had to take a pill before having the abortion and I had to sit for 2 hours in pain. After that I was taken in, given an anaesthetic and knocked out. When I woke up I was crying and I had no idea where I was. The stuff makes you so dizzy and unaware of anything!
After a few minutes it started to kick in and I knew what was going on.. Me and my boyfriend then left shortly afterwards. And guess what? 3 days later? HE DOESN'T BELIEVE I'VE HAD IT DONE! I'm not sure how much more I could prove to him?
I am bleeding and was in terrible pain when leaving there. I had a plaster on my inside arm where I had a needle there. And I had been given pills to take after the treatment.
I can understand why he thinks I may of lied again because of before, but this time it's impossible!
