I’m 20 years old, and found out that I was six weeks pregnant about a week ago. I am in a committed relationship, but we only make $800 a month together, so we knew that we couldn’t do this.
Planned Parenthood was great. I told them my financial situation, and was able to get financial help. The counselors were all very helpful and sweet to me. I had the medical abortion. I chose to have a medical abortion (pills) instead of the procedure because I wanted to do it in the privacy of my home. I was very scared, and had to psyche myself up for 2 hours before taking the final pills. To my surprise, I started spotting 20 minutes after taking the pills, had some light cramping, and everything passed within 2 hours.
I’m very happy with my choice and thankful that this option was available to me.
