Today I had a surgical abortion at 6 weeks pregnant...


"Today I had a surgical abortion at 6 weeks pregnant, after reading many horror stories I thought I'd be in a ton of pain but I feel completely fine. It was the best decision for me, I'm 23 just graduated college and I'm working an entry level marketing job, I have more student loans than money. I got pregnant after a one night stand gone wrong. I told the father and he said he supported whatever decision I made. I immediately said "I'm not keeping it". I knew I would get an abortion the second I saw the little plus sign on the pregnancy test. The procedure was quick and the cramping tolerable, I had my regular GYN do it and luckily it was covered under my insurance I was in and out of the office within an hour. After it was done my doctor prescribed me antibiotics and the birth control that I requested. I thought I would feel some remorse or grief after but I don't at all just immense relief. I also feel grateful that I could have this done in a completely judgment free zone by a trusted medical professional. My heart goes out to all the women who've had botched back alley abortions because of misogynistic laws. We have the right to decide what is best for our lives and bodies. I'm happy I had that choice and I know it was the right one." —Dee
