I’ve been having sex for less than a year and I got pregnant. At first I thought I was just unlucky, then after all the information I received at the abortion clinic I realized it’s actually quite easy to get pregnant. My boyfriend and I had been using condoms as contraception, but not all the time. For a while I thought I was pregnant but then my period came so I forgot about it. Then, for about a month after my last period I was moody and tired, then my period was late. I waited for a week and then I went to the clinic to get tested. When it was positive I was really torn about whether or not to terminate. I guess part of me always knew I could never keep it but then another part of me would imagine myself as a young mum, and I reckon I could be a young mum. I talked about it with my boyfriend and we knew what to do. Even though I wanted to keep it, like would rather have kept it, it was kind of something we both knew had to happen.
