I am terrified...I was not expecting to be pregnant at all.

By anonymous on 02/12/2012
I am 20 years old and I am terrified.. I was not expecting a pregnancy at all!
Me and the guy are not together and we don't plan on being together.
I don't know what to do, I have been thinking about having a medical abortion (the pill) but after reading stories from other woman's experiences I'm even more terrified.
I am almost 5 weeks and I am extremely scared. I can't support a child in any means, but I don't know how I'm going to feel after having a abortion. I feel like I'm going to feel terrible after.
This is my first pregnancy and The guy doesn't want a baby and I don't want to be alone in this.
I need some advice from other woman before I make my choice.

Editor's Comment

An unintended pregnancy can be very frightening and feel like your life is spiralling out of control. Abortion often feels like a way to get rid of a difficult problem, and it's important when considering your choices to explore your head and heart responses to each choice. I noticed that you mentioned several times how scared you feel and I wonder whether part of this is your heart response to feeling trapped, and uncomfortable with each of the choices in some way. Sometimes it can help to think back to how you felt about the different choices ( abortion, adoption, parenting)before you were pregnant. Did any of them make you feel uncomfortable, or think 'that's not for me'?
