I am a cervical cancer survivor. I was told my chances of conception were low. If I miraculously conceived, I would need to have my insides sewn shut to prevent a miscarriage. It was two months into a pandemic and I was 6 weeks pregnant. The appointment to terminate my pregnancy was easy. The start was easy, I wasn’t sure if I followed the instructions correctly. Two hours in, I was drenched in sweat and in pain. My spouse was amazing, offering to do anything to help me through this. Sleep finally came after several painful hours. It wasn’t easy, it was hard. I don’t regret that night and I replay it often in my head. I always make the same decision to end the pregnancy.

Remember that our stories are ours to tell. We’d love to hear your story too!
