I had a daughter 11 months ago, her father left us because he wasn’t the family type and didn’t want us. I never thought about contraception. I was diagnosed with postnatal depression the week after he left.

I met my current partner a few months later, contraception never crossed my mind. Really stupid because I was told how fertile women are after pregnancy. I stopped having periods and my boobs started getting sore and heavy and that’s when I took a test and saw two fat lines staring into my eyes. Now isn’t the right time. My partner doesn’t know and I think its best that way. I’m physically and mentally not ready, and that’s ok because it’s my choice to have an abortion.
