I knew I was pregnant before I took the test.
Thank you for sharing your experience. You sounded very sure about your decision from the outset, and thought it through knowing it was an enormous decision to make. I am glad that everyone was so helpful and supportive, and that they had your pain well controlled. Everyone's experience is different, and surgical abortion under local anaesthetic can be painful and traumatic for some people.
It sounds as though you are looking forward to carrying on with your masters and I hope it all goes well for you.
