I was 15 when I found out I was pregnant...

October 30, 2012

"I was 15 when I found  out I was pregnant. My friends and I thought it would be funny to do a  pregnancy test as a joke. Me knowing that I was later for my period didn't  really think anything of it. I took the pregnancy test and my friends and I  were waiting for the results. We looked at the test after three minutes had  gone by and it had two lines saying I was pregnant. My first reaction was  shock, and I just started to cry. I had no idea how I was going to tell my Mum  and I also had to find out a way to tell the guy who I was pregnant to.

After I told my Mum, she didn't seem too shocked, and I also told the guy. He  wasn't my boyfriend, in fact, I hardly knew him. Most people would call it a one  night stand. I was really upset when he said he wanted me to get an abortion  but at the same time I understood it was really the only thing I could do. I  decided to go through with an abortion but I didn't think I would care so much  until I started to realized I did care a lot.

I started to get really depressed and I fully regretted my abortion. I felt  really bad and to me I felt like there was a part of me missing. After a year  passed by, I started to realize I couldn't take it back now so I just have to  live with it. One day, I hope to be a mother when I am more mature and  understand fully what kind of responsibility it really is to have a child."  —Anonymous
