It was Wednesday 6th of May 2015 that I found out I was pregnant- shock, nervousness and fear consumed me.
My first thought straight away was ‘I need to get rid of this-I’m too young’. I still had to finish my studies, have a successful career and be with my adoring boyfriend (Who was 100% with me!). I wanted a medical abortion because I was a little shy of someone looking at my private parts, but they didn’t have anything available. So surgical it was. I went in today (11th May). I was super nervous, not because I was having an abortion, more what it would feel like after. I went into have an ultrasound, I was 6 weeks pregnant. I then went into the theatre room where I was administered anesthetic. I was lucky enough to have a female doctor which I am extremely grateful for. I would’ve felt more uncomfortable if it was a male doctor. I woke up 15mins later in recovery and my boyfriend came and waiting with me. I had no pain, a little bit of blood and felt a little dizzy (from anesthetic). I was allowed to leave 1/2 later. I’m sitting here now, sharing my story with no pain and the only blood I have is when I pee and wipe. It really isn’t as bad as you think, the most stressful part for me is wondering if my vagina was normal looking hahah.
