I had a medical abortion when i was 18 years old at 5 weeks pregnant. Yes, it was painful. Yes, I felt guilt and remorse for the first few weeks. Then I realized I had made the better choice for myself, my boyfriend, and my unborn child. This child would have had an unstable home, & would not have received what it deserved. I'm happy, I'm loved, I'm no less than any other woman. I made the choice that was right for me and my man. Be strong ladies, you are making the right choice if it's your* choice. <3

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

Sad. Guilty dreams. Depressed. Relieved. Moving on. Is this reality?. My baby was here one second now he is gone. Have I made the right choice? Would my boyfriend really have stayed with me? Happy but sad. Over emotional. Alone.

How did you do the abortion?

Medical abortion's are undoubtedly extremely painful (I almost fainted from the cramps) but Ibuprofen helped with the pain. My experience was private, calm, and I was allowed to deal with it my own way. The problem was that I was stressed out wondering if everything had successfully came out.

What was your situation at this time?

I have only been with my boyfriend for three months.

Did the illegality of your abortion affect your feelings?

It was legal.

How did other people react to your abortion?

I did not tell anyone else except my boyfriend. He supported me 100% either way, and agreed with my decision in the end. He loves me and knew we were not ready emotionally or financially for such a huge commitment. I'm lucky to have him by my side :).
