Never thought it would be me

I knew I never wanted children but was naive to think I would never have an accident. For my health, I cannot take hormonal birth control and the copper IUD was awful. I have been tracking for over five years, but it happened. My partner and I had only been dating for two months, and there was never a decision to be made. We both don’t want kids, my mental health diagnoses would make pregnancy a nightmare for me, and a myriad of other reasons that’s really don’t matter. I had an abortion with full support from my partner, friends, and healthcare staff. It could not have been a better experience and it was the best and only decision I could have made.

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