It wasn’t the right time.

I was 24, trying to finish grad school, and planning both a wedding and an international relocation. I was using birth control, but since I was also on antibiotics for a sinus infection, my fiancé and I added a condom for extra safety, since antibiotics could lessen the effectiveness of the birth control I was on. But… The condom broke.

The bottom fell out of my stomach when I realized, and I was put in a position where I had to consider that I might be pregnant. I knew I didn’t want a baby right then, but I also knew I was marrying the guy shortly and so maybe I should consider keeping any potential baby. But no, I decided. It just wasn’t time. He supported the decision, though we did want children some day.
