I look back now and realize that even though I was educated and very capable, I was also very young and naive. I was 18 years old, a freshman in college and in my first serious relationship, all while dealing with my father's illness and death later that year. A powder keg of change and stress - to deal with it I spent almost all of my time with my boyfriend, trying not to think about the future.


I was 20 years old when I found out I was pregnant. It was just two weeks after I had finally gotten out of an unhealthy relationship that fed my low self-esteem and low self-worth.


In the twelve years of being sexually active, I found myself in a position that never crossed my mind. There were a few times I could have easily gotten pregnant, but didn't, due to luck and/or PCOS. But, one night, I made the mistake of not using a condom.
