He said “he’s going to cum in me and there’s nothing I can do about it”. It was during lockdown and nothing was available. I had to rely on anonymous strangers on Reddit to explain to me what would/could happen and share their real life stories. I had one in person scan and the remaining appointments were over the telephone to quite a rude lady. Abusive boyfriend refused to come with me to my appointment or be there whilst I was taking the tablets for the abortion, and instead updated me on his fifa score throughout the day through text. The next day I had a rock hard feeling in my stomach that wasn’t explained to me, so I had to go to an out of hours doctor who suspected an infection, but in reality it was just from cramping for 6 hours non-stop. If it wasn’t for a group on Reddit I would’ve gone into the experience blind. I told no-one apart from my mum & partner what was happening, there’s this massive stigma and shame surrounding it. Now, when I tell people I had an abortion I feel like I have to steel myself. I didn’t kill a child, I stopped 4 week old cells. It was an awful experience as I wasn’t informed, I thought I would take the tablets & I’d be fine the next day. Abortion is healthcare.
