I'm scared in case I can't get an abortion

I was using contraception (condoms) and I'm now 5 days late for my period but I've had cramps the past few days, I've been diagnosed with depression and I'm too scared to take a test, I live in Northern Ireland and I'm scared in case I can't get an abortion, I'm only 18 and I'm not mentally healthy for a child since I've been suicidal the past 2 years, I'm so scared :(
