A difficult time, that is what it was. My ex (my partner then) had used a condom but I was not on any contraception. When I got to know I was pregnant, I told my partner who broke up with me and told my friends and classmates in college who just judged me. I was alone and scared to tell my parents. I got a medical pill abortion; the day I got to know I had been admitted into Oxford – my dream college. I don’t regret my decision. I chose to pursue studies and I just wasn’t ready to be a mother then. It was my choice. What was pitying was the way my peers judged me.
