Story 11

Here’s is my abortion story. I found out I was 4 weeks pregnant after a weird hangover. I knew there and then that I didn’t want a child. I went to see my gynae. He did the sonar but immediately left so not giving me enough time to discuss the way forward.

Four days later, I went to Marie Stopes, I was given 1 pill at the clinic and 4 to take after 24 hours. A month later I went for another sonar and to get a contraceptive of my choice for free. I think about it sometimes, but I wouldn’t do anything differently.
