I am 22 years old and a year and 3 months ago I got pregnant. I found out I was pregnant about 11 weeks later I was faced with a tough decision, whether I wanted to continue my pregnancy or terminate. I had only been dating my boyfriend for about 5 months once I found out I was pregnant. I chose to book an appointment to terminate my pregnancy later deciding it was not what I wanted to do. I continued with my pregnancy and had a wonderful baby boy whom I am so happy to have in my life and I know that he was the right choice for me at that time in my life. After my son was born my boyfriend and I always had protected sex. 3 months after my son was born the condom failed us. I later found out I was pregnant. Again I was faced with the choice of continuing or terminating. At this point in my life I am not ready for another child in any way shape or form. This time I am firm on my decision to terminate and just like when I decided to continue my pregnancy I know that both choices were the right choices for me. It was today I had my abortion. I chose not to have the pain reliever as I am not good with that loopy feeing and I must say it was not nearly as painful as I thought it was going to be. A little uncomfortable, mind you, but for me very tolerable. But anyways I just wanted to make a point to say whatever choice you do choose is the right choice for you! I must say I am so greatful that I have the choice!
