I was just 17 when I found out I was pregnantBy anonymous on 08/02/2010
When I found out I was pregnant I was only just 17. I had only been with my boyfriend for a few weeks and the first and only option we discussed was to have a termination. I didn't even think about it before it happened. It wasn't until the day after the abortion that I realised what I had actually done. I had ignored my emotions and not realised that I actually did want the baby regardless of my situation. Ever since I have been full of regret, and feel that I can't talk about it to anyone, not even my family because I thought they'd be ashamed. Since then, three years have gone by, and my relationship with my boyfriend has finished. However I find myself wanting to have a baby, which I know isn't healthy, because I'm still not ready. I am writing this now to share my story with other people in the same situation, in the hope that I can start the healing process and deal with my feelings.
