I was just 17 when I found out I was pregnant
Editor's CommentWell done for being brave enough to put down in words what you have been feeling. I too believe that it will be the start of the healing process for you. At 17 with a new relationship, pregnancy must have been a real shock, and sometimes that causes a rebound reaction before you start to think things through properly. Your longing for a baby is quite common following an abortion when you feel a deep sense of loss. It is wanting to replace that loss, but you are wise to work through your regret before you contemplate another pregnancy.
There are trained advisors who can help you with coming to terms with your experience. You can follow the link to find a local centre
for post abortion support. or ring the national helpline 0300 4000 999.
