I Had An Abortion

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 9,198 People

    I keep hearing about miscarriages

    and abortions, due to eating disorders. Even after you have recovered from it. Due to possible damage. And I'm scared. I don't want a second abortion. And I certainly don't want a miscarriage. I'm 32 years old and I'm trying to get pregnant again. I am healthy for my daughter...

    It's been roughly a year

    since I chose to terminate the life of what could've been my child. For the most part, I've accepted my decision and gotten over the feelings of guilt and regret, but recently I've been finding myself in the midst of political conversations about abortion that make me feel like...

    I had a termination last week

    after saying I would never have one. Until you're put in that situation and forced to make the hardest decision of your life, a person should not be judged. I was 12 weeks gone when I found out I was pregnant, I had just returned home after travelling with my partner. Both...

    Concerned: Fake Stories

    I had an abortion and I'm fine.

    I do not regret and never will. Because I made the right decision. I knew I was making the right decision, 7 years ago. And I still feel the same. So people can say and hope for me to feel bad about my decision. And people can talk all that BS negativity to me. What they say...

    I had an abortion on the 27th of April 2015.

    I'm only 17 and this is where people start to judge.. I have been with my boyfriend 2 years now and every single time we had sex we made sure either one of us was protected, except unfortunately condoms aren't 100% effective. I remember on Christmas Eve, being sick and I just...

    For anyone who has chosen abortion,

    consider the surgical abortion rather than the medication. The medication may seem simpler but in all reality its a very scary experience and you may end up needing surgery to remove retained products anyway.
