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

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.
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.
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 :).
Nie mogłam mieć dziecka z kilku powodów: jeszcze się uczę, chłopak w ogóle nie…
because the time just wasn't right for me.

No fue bueno pero fue lo mejor.
Não vi outra opção. Então tomei coragem e optei por um aborto.
It was sad but necessary
interrumpi un embarazo de 6 semanas
We're not monsters!
O aborto é uma escolha apenas da MULHER.
Something that has carried with me ever since.

Meu corpo: minhas regras. Eu decido se e quando quero ter filho.
