I became sexually active at 17, and for a few years, used condoms and the pill. I also had the implant for about 6 months but I went back on the pill because I hated the irregular bleeding that I had with it.

I think I became pregnant because I was ill and the pill failed. Before I got pregnant I didn’t really believe in abortion, but getting pregnant is easy – I just didn’t realise how easily it could happen.

I had counselling before my consultation and that really helped, just talking it through with someone. I decided to have an abortion because I was not financially stable and I still felt too young to have a baby. Now, I guess I’ve just completely blocked it out, I can’t think of it in terms of something real that happened to me. I’m just getting on with my life and have put it behind me. I’m being very careful with my contraception now; I hope that the next time I find out I’m pregnant it will be a blessing.
