I'm sixteen and about to have a MEDICAL termination.By anonymous on 02/01/2014
I'm sixteen and about to have a MEDICAL termination. I've just turned sixteen and have been with my boyfriend for just about a year now. He's seventeen, soon turning eighteen. I was foolish enough to have unprotected sex for a long time and since I didn't become pregnant after the first few times, I didn't worry about contraception. In November, 2013 I had my period, and just after it finished me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex. This wasn't a huge deal as we had been having unprotected sex for awhile. After my birthday, in December, 2013, me and my friends were going to go shopping to celebrate my sixteenth birthday, however I knew that that weekend was when my period was due, and it had not shown. The exact day I missed my period was the same day I was suppose to go shopping, so I asked my friend to go with me to buy a pregnancy test. Being only young, I found it too embarrassing to buy it myself so I asked her to do it for me. Once we had bought two pregnancy tests, just in case one turned negative, we went to the town hall toilets (classy, I know) and we tried the first one. After waiting awhile, the test showed one big bold line, and we both were relieved. That was until we picked it up to put it in the bin, where another faint line occurred. We didn't really read the instructions so we put the test back into it's bag, along with the other unused one to try again later when we were shopping. My boyfriend met us on the train and I told him straight away. He took the news very well, and understood what was happening. He didn't say to get rid off it which I thought most teenaged boys would do if they found out their baby might be inside me. He told me he'd support me in whatever situation I choose, even if we aren't together. He said that he'll try and make things easier for me. After shopping, I took the other one and it was definitely positive. There was no way that I could mistake both of them to be faulty as they weren't your common cheap ones. I didn't really feel anything. Which was weird. I kept forgetting about it, to be honest the thought of having a living baby inside me didn't even cross my mind.
