It was something I needed to do however it didn’t make it any less harder for me

I found out I was pregnant when I was 17 with my long time boyfriend and we both wasn’t ready at all. I did have some issues sorting out my abortion, however I got it sorted. I ended up going through a medical abortion which triggered a miscarriage I was so young and dealt with it by myself at home as well as hiding it from my family. I read loads of stories about people feeling relieved, however I felt guilt and grief. However, with support from the abortion clinic my friends and my boyfriend it ended up being okay and I learned that whatever you feel is valid. So even though I knew this was the best decision for me and the baby it didn’t make the grieving process any less and making that decision didn’t mean I didn’t love the baby and I wouldn’t have changed anything.

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