I'm 16 and was 2 months when I had my abortion.

When I found out I was pregnant it didn't feel real, and I didn't know what to do or who to tell. It took me days to be able to finally tell my Mum as I was so scared of what she would say. Thankfully she didn't go mad and supported me. I wasn't sure on my decision at first, but I thought that having an abortion was the best thing to do.

I decided to go through with the abortion

I had days where I kept changing my mind, but the day came where it had to be made and I decided to go through with the abortion. I thought it was for the best. I had it two days ago and now I think that I should not have gone through with it, and wish I hadn't. I regret it and I now can't turn back the time. I just wish I had more time to have decided.
I felt soo rushed and at the end I now feel terrible and just want to put my hand on my stomach and hope I'm still pregnant. I just feel empty and can't stop thinking about the life that I got rid of that was growing inside me. If I had a wish I'd wish for it to be back. I don't know what to do anymore or how I'm ever going to carry on without my baby please help.x

Editor's Comment

It is very hard to make a decision like this, and at 16 I can understand why you kept changing your mind. It's hard to know how you really feel, and how it may affect you afterwards. I'm sorry that you felt it was a rushed choice, and as you say once you have gone through it there is no going back. I wish that you had had more help to think and talk it through. If you would like to talk to someone now please ring our helpline 0300 4000 999, or follow the link to find a centre for post abortion support in your area.
