I'm 21 and not emotionally ready for a child
Today I'm 21 years old and I have fallen pregnant with my boyfriend of nearly 2 years who was told that it would be very hard for him to ever have children. So when I found out the test was positive I was in shock.
I immediately cried and didn't know what to feel. Up until 8 weeks I contemplated whether or not I wanted to continue or terminate.
I finally broke down and knew that I was not emotionally ready for a child.
But to get to the point today I had a surgical abortion. And let me say it was not as bad as I expected.

Before going in I read all 50 something pages of this site that had me so nervous the day before my scheduled appointment.
If you are terrified of pain like I am you have nothing to worry about.
I was given Ibuprofen and valium pills and the two pills under my tongue to soften the cervix.
30minutes later I was in the room for the procedure. The dr was very straight forward and he explained the procedure.
I would say there was no pain more of a discomfort. 1-10 being the most uncomfortable I would say it was a 5 - 5½. I have some mild bleeding right now but absolutely no pain.
