I'm not good with words...

"I'm not good with words, so I'll keep this short. My boyfriend and I have only been together for 2 months, which isn't very long. One of the things we bond on is never wanting kids. I had the Kyleena IUD, and being 21 years old, thought I was invincible. I was wrong. At first we were panicking about if it was ectopic. When we found out it was in utero, the panic grew. It would have been easier to tell my family that it was a medical procedure instead of an abortion. My boyfriend was very supportive through the whole ordeal, which I'm very grateful for.

For us, the decision was easy. Neither of us want kids, nor are we able to support a child right now. The hard part was deciding if I wanted to get surgical or medical. I chose medical. The pain was unbearable. For the entire 5 hours of passing the pregnancy, I was howling to the gods that I should have chose the other option. I knew about the side effects of a medical abortion, but I didn't know how severe they were going to be. But, honestly, all the vomit and blood and pain was worth the relief I now feel.

My boyfriend and I are still together, and we're happy. Up until tonight, I was scared to tell my family about what I've done because I didn't want to be judged. But this whole situation taught me that I'm stronger than I thought. If my family can't accept the fact that I terminated my pregnancy, that's on them. I did what I thought would be the best decision for me and my partner. Neither of us could take care of a child, and I'd never give a child of mine up for adoption. Listen to your gut, ladies. And stop listening to the opinions of others. It's YOUR body, it's YOUR choice." - Anonymous
