It still hurts sometimes…

I love these stories so I want to share mine! I’m 26 and in an open relationship with my fiancé. I started seeing my ex again, and even though I used protection (Plan B), I still got pregnant. I was getting married in a  couple months when I found out, and just couldn’t start a family with another man. I couldn’t do that to my fiancé, who has been nothing but loving and supportive while my ex has been emotionally and psychologically abusive since the very beginning. Despite being so afraid of what was to come, I was relieved that the entire medical team treated me with kindness, dignity, and respect.

It was still the most difficult thing I’ve gone through in my entire life, and it still hurts sometimes. I loved that baby so much and I know I had the means to keep him/her. I wanted the baby, but not with the man who had been so abusive to me, especially when I could have a child with a man who is truly amazing. I’m thankful that through abortion, I will be able to be a mom on my own terms someday. So I don’t regret it, I only regret allowing myself to get pregnant by another man in the first place.

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