Freedom77

Share your story

I was lucky enough to be able to have an NHS surgical termination at 8 weeks. We forget sometimes how much freedom we have in the UK and how lucky we are to have these options. I was financially and emotionally incapable of having another child and chose the safest option for myself. It isn't pleasant and far from the perfect solution but it is a relief to know I'm not going to be spending 20 years raising another child. It was unplanned and a mistake and I am grateful that the NHS helped me.

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

Was 100% sure of my decision until about 20 minutes before the surgery. Then I felt unsure and 'last chance' about it. Went ahead as I knew I was doing the right thing. I have had NO regrets whatsoever.

How did you do the abortion?

I'd say overall just mildly painful and uncomfortable. Minimal bleeding. Recovered quite well after a GA and was relieved.

What was your situation at this time?

Partner wanted it and I didn't. I was ending the relationship.

உங்கள் கருக்கலைப்புக்கு மற்றவர்கள் எவ்வாறு பதிலளித்தனர்?

Supportively. Apart from the father who was a selfish, spiteful fool and made my life a misery. I ended it the day after my termination.
