I suspected that I was pregnant a few days before my period was due. I have always had a very regular menstrual cycle, including PMS. In late April during the week before my period was due my cramping, breast pain and tiredness was so severe that I knew something wasn’t right. I waited until the […]
First of all, I’d like to thank you for having this site. I have sent many many people to view it (including a girl sitting next to me in the waiting room of Planned Parenthood!) and I think it’s a much-needed resource.
I had my abortion in May of 2007. I had been feeling ridiculously […]
I am a thirty-three year old mother; I have a thirteen-year-old and a two-year-old. Both were unplanned; there were several abortions between the two babies (with the same partner). That sounds awful to a lot of people. I remember once reading, when I was very young, that Marilyn Monroe had something like thirteen abortions; another […]
My name is Elizabeth. I am thirty four years old, and I had my second abortion two and a half weeks ago. Actually, and I feel very stupid, the two abortions happened in the same year. They were very different experiences both emotionally and physically. Because of this I urge all women who are pregnant […]
I realized I was pregnant on my 18th birthday. I knew before I took a pregnancy test because I had been extremely nauseous for several days. I was a senior in high school and had already been accepted to college with a full scholarship. Adoption wasn’t something I even considered, mainly because I was constantly […]
I am 18 years old and just recently had a medical abortion. I was dating my boyfriend for about a year and had been on various birth control methods (pills, nuva ring, etc.) While taking seasonale I noticed mood swings and depression that started to interfere with my normal life. I decided I would take […]
I am 25, and I have had one abortion. It is the best thing I have ever done.
My husband and I have been together for over three years, we love each other very much, we have a beautiful home, and almost everything we ever wanted. I say almost because we are young, there are […]
We loved each other. No doubt about that at all. My boyfriend and I had been together for a few years. But unfortunately I didn’t love myself enough to rid myself from bulimia. I threw up a pill. And that pill got me pregnant. When I found out there was of course that initial shock–what […]
I was 31 when I got pregnant. The father was a divorced friend with 4 children two nearly grown. He and I cared for each other, but marriage was out of the question and so, for him, was a fifth child. I have never been driven by a desire to have children though I love […]
My husband and I have been married for over six years. We were young when we married, and consequently, young when we had our daughter. Believe it or not, that pregnancy was attributed to my wedding night bedroom activities, despite being a loyal birth control pill user for years. However, I had a fantastic pregnancy, […]
