I am a young undergraduate trying to figure life out. I am not in a relationship.
I met this guy recently. One thing led to another and we ended up having sex. Thrice. Then we went our separate ways.
One month later, I discovered I was pregnant. This was my first time. I was careless and we didn’t use protection.
I was scared, confused and unable to concentrate with school work. I come from a very strict religious family and having a child out of wedlock is unacceptable. I needed to save myself from shame and rejection so I went and got an abortion. I didn’t inform the father of the baby.
2 months have passed but I feel worse than ever. The guilt of what I have done gives me sleepless nights. I have shut everyone out of my life and all I can think about is this terrible sin.
Please, help me.
