I think I may be pregnant.

Last September I had an abortion at 9 weeks pregnant. I didn't want it at the time but my boyfriend was so scared of being a dad and I hadn't found the courage to tell my parents. His parents knew and obviously agreed that an abortion was best.
This year I have missed my period and seriously think I may be pregnant! I don't understand how, we've been using condoms and I've been taking the pill on time!!!

I don't think I can put myself through the mental pain of an abortion!

I know I will have to tell my parents EVERYTHING, but trying to tell my boyfriend with be the hardest as last time he was the least supportive person. I don't know whether to tell him that if he can't handle it then we won't be able to be togethor anymore. I'm so confused and nervous, taking a test tomorrow.

Editor's Comment

It will take a lot of courage to face your boyfriend and parents if the test is positive. I hope that you will get some support from your parents after they get over the initial shock. It's important that you think through your options, and if abortion was a difficult option for you last time perhaps you should consider continuing the pregnancy. It sounds as though you have taken contraceptive precautions so hopefully it is a false alarm, although no contraception is 100% safe.
