    I don't mind answering. I haven't had one but if I got pregnant again, I would. I have had the morning after pill though.

    I've never had one but I would consider it.

    I wouldn't ever have one now, but I wouldn't have hesitated had I fallen pregnant before I was ready and I wouldn't hesitate if I fall pregnant later on in life when I don't want a baby.

    No I haven't, and in my current situation I wouldn't consider it (married in a monogamous relationship, one day want another baby or two)

    i have spoken on this topic elsewhere on this forum. and this forum has taught me one thing about myself. the more emotionally close to a topic i am personally the more abrupt and seemingly heartless i tend to post...

    go figure.. i am a strange fruit!

    so seeing this is a very emotive topic for me, i will say

    yes i have had one, yes i regret it and lets leave it at that hey..

    RIP little one.

    Yes.

    I wouldn't now as I'm ready and wanting (as ready as I'll ever be) children now at 24/25.

    I do not regret it, I would have been a terrible parent at 16, I could barely take care of myself I was living in squats and attending early entry university and although I'm still with the same partner I know in my heart he would have been entirely incapable of dealing with the nurture of a human life 9 years ago.

    I do feel shame in admitting it, even though I am fine with my decision, as I know there will be people that would judge me harshly on this decision, maybe decide not to speak to me and the social taboo that exists to openly discuss or admit that you have been 'that person' is a strong one.

    You have nothing to be shamed off you did what was the best for you and your baby at the time
