My story

On Halloween of last year I took my pregnancy test. I already knew that I was pregnant before I even took the test. My boyfriend of only 5 months was out of town for work. I took the test with my friend in his bathroom at his house to be alone.

The test came out +. My whole world felt unreal. I honestly knew right away that I was going to get rid of the child through an abortion. I told my boyfriend and he flew me out to California to be comfortable with him.

I honestly was terrified to get the abortion. The only people I told was him and my best friend that took the test with me.

I cried every single night so scared for what was going to happen. I had so much stress. I told my professors that I was going through a miscarriage just so I wouldn’t have to go to school.

I went through planned parenthood and it was the most comfortable way of doing it. There were people outside yelling and holding up crosses. I walked in by myself broken. They had so much security there once you got in. They had one of my favorite songs on which I found comfort with. The planned parenthood specialist were honestly amazing. They made me feel so comfortable.

My advice- go with a friend or whomever got you pregnant. Have a good support system. Don’t tell people that you know are going to make fun of you or judge you for it. You got this!
