I had a medical abortion 7 months ago.
By anonymous on 23/03/2013Didn't know whether to put this under abortion, crisis pregnancy or teenage pregnancy because it's all 3.
I had a medical abortion 7 months ago. I was in agony for 2 weeks. It was a horrible experience and I knew I never wanted to go through it again.
I left the clinic with the pill but that didn't work for me and I went on the depo injection. I've been on that for 6 months, I was supposed to get my injection but forgot to go. I went on Thursday to get it and was told I couldn't as it was 15 weeks from the last one, and there's a chance I could be pregnant. I have to wait three weeks now before I can find out.
I feel awful because there's no one else to blame but myself. I had my first abortion because I knew I wasn't ready, too young, was about to start university, and I hadn't been with my boyfriend long. I haven't said anything to him yet because I don't want to worry him. I don't want to have another abortion but I know I'm not ready to be a mum yet.
I don't know if it's because I'm being paranoid but my breasts are really tender, I need to go to the loo more often and I have awful backache. In that one week where the depo injection had worn off I could've got pregnant. There's no point in me buying a pregnancy test yet as I know it will be negative.
It's going to be the longest 3 weeks of my life!
