I had a termination after I got pregnant at a very bad time in my life. My mental health was very poor, I was self harming and suicidal and I was in total self destruct mode. Getting pregnant was part of that. I knew I was too unwell to continue a pregnancy. I was convinced I would kill myself and any baby I had. Luckily I had support from a friend to see a doctor to get the help I needed. I then took part in trials for the drug that is now called Mifepristone. At that time groups of women were at hospital at the same time to be given the medication and to be monitored by health care professionals. This gave me and other women a chance to talk about our situation. It also allowed me the opportunity to ask the male consultant why he did this work. I have never had any children, through choice and know I made the right choice for me that day.
